Line will start fourth
INDIANAPOLIS, IN – Constant rain which pelted Lucas Oil Raceway throughout the day on Sunday forced NHRA officials to cancel the final day of qualifying at the Mac Tools U.S. Nationals in Indianapolis, Ind. The fields for Monday’s final eliminations will be set based on the two qualifying sessions held on Friday and Saturday, starting with the first round of Top Fuel at 11:00 a.m. (ET).
Summit Racing’s Jason Line earned the fourth starting position with his opening 6.646-second, 208.52 mph pass.
“You always want to get as much track time as you can, but today that just wasn’t possible,” said Line. “For the second straight day the pits were filled with die-hard fans who just wanted to see us race, and I’m sorry we weren’t able to do so, but Mother Nature was in the driver’s seat.
“I feel good about our chances for tomorrow. We seem to be headed in the right direction with my Summit Racing Camaro, and as long as the weather cooperates, I think we’ll be in contention. It certainly won’t be easy, and we have absolutely no room for error, but we’re looking for a long day of racing on Monday.”
