Drag racing is truly a family sport, and the closer you look, the more likely you are to see multiple generations of drivers permeating the pits. In Pro Stock, that theme is particularly strong. The story of multiple generations runs thick in the KB Racing pits, where Cody works on dad Greg Anderson’s Summit Racing Pro Stocker, and Jack, son of Jason Line, has had a job on Bo Butner’s Pro Stocker from the beginning.
Keep looking and you’ll see another father-and-son branch of the team with Steve Glenn and his son, Dallas.
The younger Glenn has been with the team since 2013 and previously prepared the back-half of Line’s Summit Racing Chevy. When Kyle Koretsky came on board and Dallas was assigned to the new kid’s car (Kid Chaos, that is, for those not in the know), Steve took over back-half duties on Line’s car.
The Kent, Wash., native and father of three drives Line’s Summit Racing rig to every event on the NHRA tour (and anywhere in between that the team chooses to test). Dallas, who resides in Mooresville near the KB Racing shop, drives Anderson’s truck and trailer. At the events, Steve handles everything from cooling the engine of Line’s Team Summit entry to tires, parachutes, and making sure all of the parts and pieces are secure and in place for a safe, smooth run down the racetrack.
Steve has been a racer himself for many years, doing a bit of racing in a Legends car but mostly sticking to the drag strip with his Super Street Chevy wagon. His passion for the sport is evident in his enthusiasm for his work at the drag strip.
“This is all a dream come true for me,” he said. “Racing for a championship, spending time with my son. I just love every bit of it.”
