Troy Coughlin Wins NHRA Finale in Vegas
Last year at the NHRA finale in Las Vegas, Troy Coughlin took a giant leap into the history books. He won a wally and secured his points championship in NHRA Pro Mod. This year promised to be very similar.
Coughlin recently switched his engine to the new PLR 481X STAGE 3, featuring the latest AJPE Stage 3 Billet Cylinder Heads!
Here is a summary of his passes over the weekend:
This victory meant a lot to Coughlin; low ET 3 out of 4 rounds of eliminations, back to back wins at NHRA Vegas, finished 2nd in points (only 2 rounds out of first place), and the 100th NHRA win for the Coughlin family!
If we can take anything from Coughlin's performance, it would be the fact that consistency wins races! It is a true pleasure working with the Jegs.com team and we look forward to another great season of NHRA Pro Mod! Congrats to Troy, Petty, and the whole Jegs.com crew!

Kinzer Wins at NMCA Indy
The NMCA World Street Finals at Indy proved to be an exciting end to the 2013 NMCA race season. Pro Line Racing customer, Willard Kinzer, made an appearance in his freshly painted 1998 Mustang set up for NMCA Super Street Outlaw 10.5W. Kinzer and his crew chief, Steve Petty, have been looking for a win since acquiring the car mid-year and Indy would be the perfect place to get that win!
After qualifying #7 with a 6.69@224mph, Kinzer was ready to take on a field featuring some of the fastest racers in Outlaw 10.5. He began eliminations by taking out #6 Brian Hicks with a 6.66@220mph. Hicks went red and Kinzer moved on! Round 2 had him paired up with #1 qualifier Mark Micke. Kinzer made a great pass with a 6.59@241mph to Micke's 6.81@215mph! He also took high MPH for the event! Next round he faced Jim Brown, who had some sort of problem down the track and had to shut down early. Kinzer moved on to the finals with a 7.11@196mph.
In the final round Kinzer would again be put to the test! Facing Mark Woodruff in his stunning 1967 twin-turbo Corvette! Woodruff left the line with a big advantage, but Kinzer pulled away with the victory and his best pass of the weekend, a 6.57@231mph to Woodruff's 6.69@213mph!
As you could imagine, there was a great celebration among Kinzer's crew. The first win of the year comes at the final NMCA race of the year! We'd like to congratulate Mr. Kinzer, Steve Petty, Jeff Lutz and all of the people who make up his hard working crew. It has been a pleasure working with them this year!

In the second round, Fiscus met with the 2012 World Champion and fellow PLR-powered racer, Troy Coughlin. Coughlin took the win with a 6.04@243mph to Fiscus’ 6.21@240mph.

Steve Gorman Impresses at YellowBullet
In his first appearance with an upgraded chassis and new PLR 481X engine program, Steve Gorman showed that his racing team has pure potential! Gorman made the trip to Cecil County Dragway to compete in the Outlaw 10.5 class at the 4th annual YellowBullet Nationals. Sometimes, showing up to a race with a completely new setup can be quite tricky, but the PLR 481X twin turbo setup is a proven combination and his race car was ready to handle whatever the track threw at him!
Gorman started the show with a 4.23@186mph to hold the #6 qualifying spot out of 38 cars trying to qualify in a 32 car field. In eliminations, he strung together a handful of nice runs, including a 4.24@190mph in the semifinals to take top speed of the event! In the final round he faced Doug Sikoroa in an exciting side-by-side race to the finish. Gorman had a slight disadvantage at the light and ran a 4.344@174mph to Sikora's 4.341@174mph! This was about as close as drag racing can get!
Congrats to Gorman and crew on runnering-up in their first time out with the new combo! We anticipate great things from them in the future!
Coughlin Races to Semis at the US Nationals
INDIANAPOLIS (Sept. 2) – JEGS.com Pro Mod driver Troy Coughlin's 2013 season has been hot or cold, as he's reached three final rounds – winning once – while falling in the first round three times.
But the U.S. Nationals on Monday at Lucas Oil Raceway were lukewarm, as Coughlin raced to the semifinals before dropping a fierce race to Rickie Smith.
"It's definitely good," Coughlin said. "It's nice to get past the first round and go some rounds. The JEGS.com car is running pretty damn good."
Coughlin, crew chief Steve Petty and the team stepped up when they needed to in Indy, posting their best elapsed time in eliminations. Coughlin, the No. 12 qualifier, beat Tim Tindle in the first round on Sunday with a pass of 5.977 seconds at 244.43 mph.
That put him up against Kevin Fiscus for Round 2 on Monday, and though the turbocharged Corvette didn't make a perfect run, it was more than good enough. Coughlin's pass was 6.043 seconds at 243.63 and took down Fiscus' 6.218-second run at 240.08 mph.
"We put a conservative, 5.97-, 5.98-type of a tune-up in it," said Coughlin, who remained second in the points standings. "It got a little bit loose probably 300 feet or so and started skating toward the centerline a little bit. We backed it down just a little bit to try to get it back in the groove so we could stand on it again. It ran 6.04, 243, and I was like, 'Wow, it's definitely got a lot of steam.'"
He proved that in the semifinals against Smith, the No. 1 qualifier. Coughlin's run was 5.951 seconds at 247.02 mph, and he nearly overcame Smith's early lead out of the gate. Smith, though, made a pass of 5.948 seconds at 240.72 mph to get the win by .024 seconds, or about 9 feet.
"Both of us made a fantastic run that session," Coughlin said. "I think it was the fastest two runs of the whole race. But we'll just have to dig a little harder, from a driving standpoint and everything and try to get her to go.
"Rickie's doing a good job. He's leading the points and picked up a couple more rounds. It’s not near over, but it was his day today."
Coughlin, though, knows he had a pretty good day, too, as he shaved two-tenths of a second off his first pass of the weekend.
"As a team, we did a good job," said Coughlin, the 2012 Pro Mod champion. "We added some points. From Friday to Monday, we made a big improvement."

Moits Racing Mustang Goes 252MPH on 10.5s!
A few of our friends down in Australia have been very busy in the past couple weeks. They set out to break the World Speed Record on 10.5 inch tires, which hasn't been touched since 2010. The car is an ex Skinny Kid Race Cars XTF Mustang that has been overhauled by GD Race Cars just outside of Sydney. The Mustang is powered by the record breaking PLR 481X twin turbo engine combination. With Paul Mouhayet, driver of the Moits Racing XTF Mustang, and CV Performance tuning and handling crew duties, these guys were ready for the task at hand!
After a few passes at Sydney Dragway, they'd already done it! Mouhayet piloted the XTF Mustang to a record breaking firstname.lastname@example.org pass! To add a little icing on the cake, they went out for another pass and showed that this is just the begining! They went email@example.com to reset the record. This run stands as the quickest and fastest Australian Outlaw 10.5 pass and the World Speed Record on a 10.5 inch tire.
This performance leaves us wondering: how far will this team go? Well... considering that this was one of their first couple times out, its fair to say that they will boost it up a notch and continue with progress!
Congrats to Moits Racing, Paul Mouhayet, CV Performance, GD Racecars, and all involved!
