The 2017 Operation Appreciation tour is off and running as the team visits military installations
in Japan for the first time. Summit Racing Equipment and Armed Forces Entertainment have banded
together once again to bring a bit of home to those on post by sending a roster of Motorsports
champions to meet the troops. The group once again includes Summit Racing NHRA Pro Stock world
champions Greg Anderson and Jason Line; recently crowned 2017 Harley-Davidson Vance & Hines NHRA
Pro Stock motorcycle champion Eddie Krawiec and his teammate, five-time NHRA series titlist Andrew
Hines, and champion BIGFOOT 4x4® Monster Truck drivers Dan Runte and Larry Swim.
In their first visit with troops in Japan, Team Summit started
with a meet
and greet at the Jewel of the East Galley on Yokosuka Naval Base.
On the first day of the trip, the group visited Yokosuka Naval Base, a historic installation that
was built in 1870 and fosters strong partnerships between fleet activities, the city of Yokosuka,
and the Japanese community.
This year's journey overseas to connect with members of the U.S. Armed Forces in a show of
gratitude marks the 10th consecutive tour for Line, who served in the Air Force prior to his career
as a professional NHRA drag racer.
