Xtreme Drag Radial / True Ten Five
After 5 rounds of qualifying, the top 3 qualifiers were Roger Holder, Jeff Kyle and Mike Keenan respectively. Holder had a memorable outing in his XDR Camaro. He recently switched his powerplant to a PLR Big Block Chevy. Holder qualified #1 with a 6.59@230mph. On his way to the finals, he went 6.57, 6.56, and a personal best 6.55@231mph In the final round he would meet #3 qualifier and fellow PLR customer, Jeff Kyle! After waiting patiently for Holder to get his car to fire, Kyle was signaled to make a bye run when it was clear that he wouldn't make the call. Kyle took the victory and both ran new personal bests! 2014 will be an interesting year in XDR!
Legal Pro Modified
Jim Bell, Pro Mod racer out of Edmonton, Alberta, brought his immaculate Mustang to Vegas to try his luck in the Legal Pro Mod class. Bell has had a busy year of drag racing, and the Street Car Supernationals seemed to be a fitting end to the season.
Bell qualified #3 with an impressive 5.97@243mph! After running a string of 5.90's, he found himself in the 2nd round of eliminations. Bell made a quick move to the left, taking him out of the groove. He made a hard move and saved his car from hitting the wall! Unfortunately, his weekend was over, but on the bright side, his car was running with bracket car consistency! It has been an awesome year of racing with Bell and his crew. We look forward to the 2014 race season!
Outlaw Pro Mod
Running Outlaw Pro Mod, with Dillard in the El General Camaro, was Troy Coughlin in the JEGS.com Turbo Pro Mod Corvette. Just coming of yet another victory at NHRA Las Vegas, Coughlin was ready to press his luck in the Outlaw class! Dillard qualified #2 with a 5.72@261mph and Coughlin took the #3 spot with a 5.73@257mph! A string of low 5.70 runs and round wins from both teams led to the quickest and fastest doorslammer race in history! Dillard and Coughlin stage against each other, Dillard got ahead early, but Coughlin had just enough to edge by and take the win! Coughlin's 5.72@259mph to Dillard's 5.75@259mph! What a race!
We'd like to congratulate Troy Coughlin and Jeff Kyle and their respective crews on this well deserved victory! We are so proud to be a part of each of our customers racing programs and hope to continue these relationships in the future!

Klugger Successful in Pro Mod Debut
Josh Klugger, of Fiscus/Klugger Racing, made his Pro Mod debut at the Outlaw Drag Racing Championship in Bradenton, FL. With Klugger taking driver duties and Kevin Fiscus calling the shots, this car should fly! In his first pass behind the wheel of a Pro Mod, he went 4.00@197mph! Not too shabby!
Klugger qualified #3 with a 4.00@195mph. Fiscus added some power in the first round of eliminations, sending Klugger to his low E.T. with a email@example.com pass! Klugger made it all the way to the semifinals where his 4.00@197mph wasn't quite enough to take down #2 qualifier Chris Patrick's 3.95. However, Klugger walks away from this race with loads Pro Mod driving experience and high MPH of the event! We look forward to seeing the Fiscus/Klugger Racing team on the track soon!
Congrats to Josh and Kevin on an overall successful weekend!

PLR Domination at Fall Brawl
If you had the pleasure of attending the 2nd Annual Fall Brawl at Holly Springs Motorsports, then you witnessed some of the biggest names in Outlaw Drag Radial battling for end of the season bragging rights! As usual, the track surface was perfect for the radial cars, and the cooler weather gave us ideal conditions for breaking records!
Dewayne Mills, racer out of Oklahoma, traveled to Holly Springs with his immaculate '68 Camaro which is powered by the PLR 481X and twin Precision turbos. Mills qualified #3 with a 4.28@190mph! He laid down some impressive runs on his way to the semifinals. His best pass of the weekend came in the 3rd round of eliminations when he ran a 4.27@188mph! Mills and crew are die hard competitors and we can't wait to see them racing again!
Last but certainly not least, Georgia racer out of BMF Motorsports Keith Berry, brought the black Corvette to Hollly Springs with two objectives: bring home a 2nd consectutive win at Holly, and continue his quest to become the quickest radial racer in the world. This would not be an easy task, but hard work and dedication pays off! In qualifying, Berry started pecking away at the record, which stood at 4.208. His PLR Billet LSX Mozez, has performed in the past and this weekend it would really be tested. In three rounds he went: 4.29, 4.24, and 4.21! It wasn't until round 1 of eliminations that Berry put himself in the record books, running a firstname.lastname@example.org! But, he wanted more! Berry belted off a email@example.com, resetting the record and making him the first official Drag Radial racer to the teens!
Berry would need to keep up this momentum as he would face Valden in the semifinals! This would stand as the closest race of the night. Once again Valden would not be beaten on the tree, Berry went 4.21@190mph to Valden's 4.25@186mph! Margin of Victory: .0077sec, which comes out to 2 feet and 1 inch!
Berry moved on to the finals defeating Bruce Johnson with a 4.23@182mph to bring home the the victory!
This race will forever stick out in our memories as one of the greatest ODR events. With 3 PLR cars in the semifinals, an event win, and a new world record how can you blame us? We'd like to congratulate everyone involved, hardcore racers and crews are the reason why the sport continues to get better every year.
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 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.

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!

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."
