Line leads Pro Stock in Las Vegas

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

Jason Line is the No. 1 Pro Stock qualifier at the DENSO Spark Plugs NHRA Nationals at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Line’s first pass from Friday’s qualifying was good to hold onto the lead for the top spot in eliminations on Sunday.

Line went 6.647 at 206.29 mph in his first qualifying session on Friday in his Summit Racing Equipment Chevy Camaro.

“The strategy is to go out there and go as fast as you can every time,” he said. “Obviously try to do the best job you can to get every bit of performance out of the race car. It’s not just me. I’m just one small part of it.

“I’m the guy who can mess it up. [Crew chief] Rob [Downing] and the guys do a really good job of getting the race car down the race track. It’s a very good hot rod right now.”

Line has qualified from the No. 1 spot 53 times in his career. Also, with only 15 cars in the bracket, he will receive a bye.

Jeg Coughlin Jr., who qualified No. 2 with a 6.652 at 206.92 mph, will face No. 15 Tom Huggins. Then, Line’s KB Racing teammate Bo Butner, as the No. 3 qualifier following his 6.655 at 206.67 mph pass, will face Alan Prusiensky in eliminations.

Greg Anderson, the other Summit Racing Equipment driver, qualified fourth with a 6.660 at 206.20 mph pass – and will face Allen Johnson in his Dodge Dart. Rookie Tanner Gray qualified fifth with a 6.665 at 206.76 will face Deric Kramer in the first-round.
