Jason Line (born July 24, 1969 in Wright, Minnesota) drives the KB Racing Summit Racing Chevrolet Camaro Pro Stock car in the NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing Series. Line resides in Terrell, North Carolina with his wife, Cindy, son, Jack and daughter, Emma.

Living just a few miles away from the Brainerd International Raceway in Brainerd, Mn, Jason became an avid drag racing fan as a kid while learning engine repair and performance tricks from his dad who was considered an "ACE Mechanic" and Muscle Car enthusiast in the area. Jason acquired a 1970 Buick GS as a teenager and went to work on perfecting it in its stock form, took it to the track, and quickly began cutting impressive reaction times and consistent wins. In a short time he won the locally coveted 1993 NHRA Region 5 championship and went on to win the NHRA National Stock Championship that same year.
