[...] we feel like we should be doing better than we are, but sometimes in the name of forward progress you end up going backwards. With all the interest this project has generated, I'm sure we'll be doing some sort of an update on it, so stay tuned. Because this is my last column of the year, I want to thank those who make this all possible, including NHRA for giving us a sandbox to play in.
On the Run with Jason Line driver of the Summit Racing Equipment ’09 GXP Pro Stocker I t’s hard to believe that, as I write this, there are only four races left in the 2009 NHRA Full Throttle season. Although we’re far from done, at this point it hasn’t been the year we wanted it to be. I know that may sound strange considering Greg and I have teamed up to score six wins in 12 final-round appearances, including five in a row and two all-Summit finals in Sonoma and Brainerd, but this KB Racing team prides itself on setting the bar extremely high.

That’s the beauty of drag racing: It’s not done on paper; you have to earn it out on the track. Just as we saw last weekend in Dallas, there are all sorts of variables that come into play, and you never know how things are going to turn out. We’re still working to get better every day, doing everything we can to put one of our Summit Pontiacs at the top of the standings by the end of the year. “We’re doing everything we can to put one of our Summit Pontiacs at NOVEMBER 12-15 the top of the standings.” Away from the track, one of my biggest surprises has been the incredible response to my ’68 Bel Air station wagon project. Ever since we did the story about 800.884.NHRA driving it home from Las Vegas, I’ve had fans come up at every race and ask me about it with a lot of them trying to sell me their wagon as well (sorry, but I’ve got all that I need). If I have the time, I enjoy talking with them, and it’s always good because yo
