Jason Line 2011 Pro Stock Champion
-Las Vegas, Nevada-October 30, 2011
Jason Line clinched his second NHRA Full Throttle Pro Stock world championship when racing came to an end Sunday at the Big O Tires NHRA Nationals at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
Line entered the 2011 NHRA Countdown to the Championship second in the Pro Stock point standings. He then raced to three consecutive final-round appearances, including wins in Dallas and Reading, in the first three races of the Countdown. In total, Line raced to six wins in eight final-round appearances for the season and posted seven No. 1 qualifiers in his Weld Racing wheel equipped Pontiac GXP.
“It feels unbelievable to win my second championship,” said Line. “Timing is everything in our sport, and we got hot at the right time. The second championship definitely means more to me because as I’ve gotten older, I’ve learned to appreciate it, and realized how hard these things really are to get.”
