LAS VEGAS (AP) - Jason Line won his second Pro Stock championship Sunday when he advanced to the semifinals of the NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing Series event at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
The 42-year-old Minnesota native will start the season finale in two weeks at Pomona, Calif., with an insurmountable 199-point lead over KB Racing teammate and reigning champion Greg Anderson.
Line relished his first championship since 2006 but wanted to win the Big O Tires Nationals title Sunday as well. But his day ended when he left the starting line too early in the semis and drew a red-light disqualification. However, Anderson also false-started in the other semifinal race.
Line, who will receive a $250,000 bonus from NHRA, worked as an engine tuner for Joe Gibbs Racing in NASCAR and helped Bobby Labonte win the 2000 Sprint Cup championship. Before moving to North Carolina and shifting to stock-car racing, Line was a successful drag racer and won the 1993 NHRA Stock Eliminator championship.
