Driving his C/SA ’69 Mustang, Ben Line ran his Brainerd win streak to 14 consecutive rounds and capped off the win with a win over Randi Lyn Shipp in a heads-up, no-breakout battle between C/SA entries in Stock. Line got the best of Shipp’s ’67 Firebird, 10.538 to 10.679. Just in case his performance advantage wasn’t enough, Line also helped himself with a near-perfect .009 reaction time. There were six members of the Line family racing in Brainerd, so it wasn’t a surprise to see Line race against his mother, Maxine, in her F/SA ’68 Chevelle in the first round. After an even start, Ben turned on the win light after Maxine broke out by .025-second at the finish line.
