Wright native Jason Line earned his 50th National Hot Rod Association Pro Stock title by defeating Fernando Cuadra in the finals of the Mopar Express Lane Nationals on Sunday at Mohnton, Pa.
Line’s Summit Racing Equipment Chevrolet Camaro was timed in 6.553 seconds at a speed of 210.60 mph to beat Cuadra (6.594, 208.78).
Line also took over the points lead from KB teammate Bo Butner. Cuadra, who was completing in his first career final round, is also a KB powered car.
“It was a big victory, for sure,” Line said in a news release. “Not one of my finer moments, but big victory, nonetheless. I was a little tardy (leaving the starting line) so not what you want to do in the final round. But 50 wins just means I’ve had some great race cars to drive and some great people I’ve gotten to work with over the years. It’s been a fun ride.”
Duluthian Greg Anderson finished 13th after losing in the first round of eliminations.
