PLR 2014 Year in Review
2014 was a huge year for our customers. Some of them debuted new race cars and engine combinations, some set world records and personal bests, and some won championships! Here are some that come to mind...
Another member of team Proline Canada, Frank Pompilio, unveiled a new PLR 481X powerplant in his 65' Outlaw 10.5 Mustang! They went on to win the Outlaw 10.5 class at the Shakedown at Norwalk.
The Moits Racing team, out of Australia, certainly made made a statement with their brand new TMRC Outlaw Pro Mod Mustang! Paul Mouhayet drove the PLR 481X-powered Mustang to a new Pro Boost world record at the PDRA Martin race, and the doorslammer MPH record (273mph) at the Street Car SuperNationals in Las Vegas!
X275 racer, Shawn Ayers, completely overhauled his old combination and went with the new PLR X275 LS engine with the new FuelTech FT500 EFI System. Ayers and crew finished the season strong by running a 4.47/160mph and a runner-up performance at the Huntsville Radial Fest!
In Outlaw 10.5 action, Steve Gorman stamped himself into the history books by winning the Mickey Thompson Outlaw 10.5 Championship! Winning races at MIR, E'Town, Cecil County, and ATCO helped Gorman and crew achieve championship status!
That's not every one of our customers and their achievements for the year, but it's a long list and we have a great deal of pride for our racers. We feel lucky to be a part of their programs and look forward to 2015. New Year = new records and new achievements.
Q80 and Holder Win Big in Vegas
This year's Street Car Supernationals in Las Vegas featured more of our customers than ever before! Across 3 classes of heads-up 1/4 mile racing, our customers accounted for 2 winners, 2 runner-ups, 2 #1 qualifiers, and 3 world records!
Roger Holder completely dominated the Pro Drag Radial class in his orange Camaro! Holder and crew shocked the crowd with an almost effortless looking 6.27@240mph (which shattered the radial tire 1/4 mile record!) Eventually, they took the #1 qualifying spot with a 6.13@243mph! On his way to victory, he ran a new personal best and the new Drag Radial 1/4mile record, 6.12@244mph!
Larry Larson made history in his Drag Week S10. He set the new Street Legal E.T. and MPH record with a 5.95@244mph! All of that hard work certainly paid off!
Michael Biehle and Paul Glandon both came away with holeshot wins in E1 of the Legal Pro Mod class! Glandon made it all the was to the semifinals in his new Camaro, going 5.90@247mph along the way. Biehle ran some of the best numbers we've seen all year! He ran a 5.90@251mph on a huge holeshot win in E1, a new personal best 5.82@253mph in E2, and a 5.86 in E3. He went on to runner up the event!
Outlaw Pro Mod saw 2 of our customers reach 270+ MPH! Paul Mouhayet, driver of the Moits Mustang, ran a new personal best with a 5.63@273mph which will stand as the fastest doorslammer pass in the world! Turky Al Zafiri of the Q80 Racing team and Eric Dillard with El General Racing Team qualified #1 and #2 repectively. Turky and Dillard ran a string of mid 5.50's to make it the finals where the Q80 Racing Team took the win!
We always love traveling west for this race, it is an opportunity to race with the most talented racers on the other side of the country! Congrats to all involved in this monumental event, we can't wait until next year!
Fiscus and Klugger Dominate at WSN
The Orlando World Street Nationals was the stage for Fiscus/Klugger Racing's all-out assault of the Pro Mod and Drag Radial categories! Pro Mod driving duties went to Kevin Fiscus, while Josh Klugger took on the new Drag Radial Mustang!
Both drivers brought home a victory and a new track record. Fiscus' best E.T. was a 5.89@248mph and Klugger went 4.30@180mph! Keep your eyes on this team as they will likely continue to race both cars at the same time again. Congrats the the whole FKR team and all involved!

Mills and Biehle Win at NMCA Finals
Several of our customers have enjoyed this year's NMCA events, probably because they have offered the Drag Radial and Pro Mod teams a competitive venue to race all year!
The NMCA World Street Finals in Indy serves as the last NMCA race of the year. Champions are crowned and everyone swings for the fences to edge out the competition!
The Radial Wars class has proven to be one of the NMCA's most exciting new classes! The biggest names in Drag Radial have traveled all over the nation to prove that they have what it takes to bring home a Wally. This event was full of action from start to finish. Keith Berry locked down his Radial Wars points championship and almost won the event! In an all Proline-powered semi final round we saw Berry vs Steve Crisafulli and DeWayne Mills vs Josh Klugger! Berry laid down a new NMCA record 4.11@188mph to advance past Crisafulli(4.18@194mph) to the finals. Mills followed up with a 4.12@196mph to take out Klugger in the brand new FKR/Racecraft Mustang. In the finals, both Berry and Mills turned their cars up to 11 and we saw one of the closest races we've seen all year!
Berry left first with a slight advantage .027 to Mills' .042! Berry ran an impressive 4.11@187mph but it wasn't enough for Mills' 4.08@197mph! This race was won by a .01 margin of victory! Mills enjoyed the win and the new NMCA Radial Wars E.T. record. Berry walks away from this race as the Inaugural Radial Wars Champion!
As of now, the Radial tire racers have one more stop in their season, Holly Springs, and it should be an all-out attack of the records!
In NMCA Pro Mod action, Michael Biehle and his PLR 481X-powered Mustang had a successful outing! Not only did he run his quickest and fastest pass ever, a 5.85@252mph, he had his Mustang running like a bracket car! To show how consistent he was, he went 5.85 in qualifying, E1 - 5.87, E2 - 5.86, E3 - 5.87, and in the finals he went 5.89! We couldn't be more proud of Biehle and crew! He's only been to a few races this year and he is having great success with his combination!
All things considered, the NMCA has given our customers a reliable place to race, week in and week out. We would like to congratulate all of our racers for their achievements this year and look forward to their continued success!
Canadians Dominate at the Shakedown
A couple of our Canadian friends made the trip to Summit Motorsports Park with plans for race domination!
Jim Bell, has had a successful year especially after his big win at the Street Car Super Nationals in St. Louis. He showed up to the Shakedown at the Summit event in Norwalk, OH with his fan-favorite twin-turbo '69 Pro Mod Camaro!
Despite the rain and strong winds, Bell and many other drivers discovered that the conditions made for some of the fastest drag racing we've seen in a while! Bell qualified at the #7 spot with a 4.02@198mph. He ran a exciting string of mid 3.80's and low 3.90's on his way to the finals where he faced Jeff Lutz. Bell blasted off to a 3.87@194mph to take hard fought win!
In Outlaw 10.5, Frank Pompilio and his beautiful 1967 Mustang took the class by storm with his new PLR 481X powerplant! Pompilio started off strong by taking the #5 qualifying spot with a 4.21@186mph! He fought his way to the finals going 4.19, 4.24, and a 4.14! In the finals, Pompilio lined up against Tom Basso where he went a 4.16@188mph to Basso's 4.30 to bring the championship home!
Congrats to both drivers and their hard working teams. This is a top tier race and we know that you will not soon forget this one!
Coughlin Wins Charlotte and Top Qualifier at STL
ST. LOUIS (Sept. 27) – JEGS.com driver Troy Coughlin held the Wally trophy two weeks after the race was supposed to run, but the victory in the Powerrocks NHRA Pro Mod event was still sweet.
Coughlin scored his second win of the season Saturday, beating Mike Janis in the final round of the NHRA Carolina Nationals – a race completed during the AAA Insurance NHRA Midwest Nationals at Gateway Motorsports Park this weekend.
"Winning this trophy for the Charlotte race is pretty special." Coughlin said. "I'm pretty fired up, pretty excited."
Coughlin, who won earlier in the year in Norwalk, Ohio, also closed the gap on the Pro Mod points leader Rickie Smith with the Charlotte win. Unofficially, Coughlin is 59 points behind Smith and four behind Janis. Only the St. Louis and Las Vegas races remained on the 2014 Pro Mod schedule.
"We're getting closer, we're inching up on Rickie's heels," Coughlin said. "We're chewing on Rickie's heels, as they say. He has done an awesome job this year, but we want to chase him down and make him earn it. Mike Janis, Steve Matusek, there are a handful of guys who have the opportunity to jump up and win this thing. I’m happy as heck to be one of them."
Coughlin's Charlotte win started there, when he beat Kevin Fiscus in the first round. The race was then postponed to Gateway, but Coughlin didn't slow down. He took out Donnie Walsh with a 5.845-second pass at 250.41 mph, beating Walsh's run of 5.905 seconds at 225.18 mph.
Coughlin's run also allowed him to snare the No. 1 qualifying spot for St. Louis. That's the second No. 1 of his Pro Mod career and first since Norwalk in 2012.
"It's exciting to get back on the other side of the fence, up on the pole there in front of everybody," Coughlin said. "We were able to pick up some points toward the latter part of the season, and we're going to make a run for the championship."
Coughlin picked up some more points with a semifinal win over Danny Rowe with a pass of 5.881 at 250.32 mph. Coughlin's .047-second reaction time was the difference, beating Rowe's quicker pass of 5.880 seconds at 246.80 mph.
In the final, Coughlin left first for the fourth time in Charlotte eliminations, getting the victory with a 5.937-second pass at 239.14 mph, while Janis slowed to a run of 9.438 seconds at 112.11 mph.
"We're not the fastest car out here," Coughlin said. "We're just trying to make good, competitive runs. Steve, Mike, Kyle and those guys are doing a fantastic job on this thing. They're giving us a race car that's been repeatable. We're not the fastest hot rod through all these laps, but it's the most consistent, and I know when I pull up to stage that they've given me a good hot rod. This Corvette is pretty mean.
"Thanks to the Powerrocks people, too. We'd like to thank them for sponsoring this race. We couldn't do it without the sponsors, that's for sure."
Powerrocks is part of a series of sponsors in the Pro Mod Series, joining Redhorse Performance, JE Pistons, Pro Line Racing, Larry Jeffers Race Cars and ProtectTheHarvest.com. Precision Turbo & Engine is sponsoring the Gateway event.

Making Doorslammer History at SCSN St Louis
The PSCA's Street Car Super Nationals in St Louis showcased one of the greatest matchups in doorslammer history! Frankie "The Mad Man" Taylor vs Turky "aka Scarface" of the Q80 Racing Team. Whether you're a fan of turbos cars or blower cars, at the end of this race you had a great deal of respect for both!
Taylor started the party by running 5.55@260mph, Turky came back with a 5.53@270mph, Taylor followed with a 5.52@251mph! The Q80 Racing Team's crew made a few changes which sent their driver to a blistering 5.47@272mph! The final round of Outlaw Pro Mod put the two quickest doorslammers in the world head-to-head to see who would rise to the challenge and take the title of #1 in 1/4 mile doorslammer drag racing! As the light dropped, Turky had a slight advantage, but The Mad Man quickly got out in front. At about 1100 ft, Turky made his move past Taylor for the win. Final ET's were Taylor 5.47@263mph to Turky's 5.46@272mph!
All of us at Proline Racing will remember this race for years to come! It will stand out as one of those races that sets the bar for performances in the future. The lucky fans who made their way out to Gateway Motorsports Park surely got their money's worth!
We'd like to send a huge thank you to Sheik Duaij for giving us the opportunity to show the world what these turbocharged combinations are capable of! Congrats to the Q80 Racing Team: Turky, Adnon, Mohammed, Jassim, Steve, Brandon, and Pedro!
DeWayne Mills Wins Big in Tulsa, Breaks Record
DeWayne "Big Daddy" Mills made a statement at the Throwdown in T'Town, a huge Drag Radial race at Tulsa Raceway! Mills with the help of his awesome crew was able to reclaim his title as the Quickest Man on Radials by going 4.08@194mph!
Mills is the driver of the Golden Gorilla Camaro which is powered by a PLR 481X and twin Precision turbochargers. Along with the E.T. record, Mills was unstoppable throughout eliminations. He brought home the win in the Radial vs. the World class!
At this point in the season, there are a bunch of exciting races coming soon and we look forward to seeing how the race to the 3.90's will play out! Congrats to DeWayne, Tim, Tara, Kallee, Jamie Miller and anyone else involved on this huge achievement!
Keith Berry Wins NMCA Radial Wars Joliet
The NMRA/NMCA Superbowl in Joliet was full of excitement despite the wet conditions, and the NMCA Radial Wars class continued it's success!
Woodruff reset the Radial Wars ET record with a 4.16@188mph! He ran consistent 4.teens throughout the heat of the weekend.
With 3 NMCA Radial Wars events completed, we saw an all-Proline final at all 3 events! We are thrilled to see our customers having this level of success and can't wait to see how this season unfolds!

Troy Coughlin Wins Big in Norwalk
NORWALK, Ohio (July 6) – JEGS.com driver Troy Coughlin capped off a stellar weekend for the famed Coughlin family with a thrilling victory in the NHRA Pro Mod Drag Racing Series event Sunday presented by Mid Atlantic Energy Service.
Coughlin's win, his first of the season, came not long after brother Mike won in Top Sportsman.
"Any time one of us wins, it is sweet," Coughlin said. "I was standing down at the finish line when Mikey's win light came on. I'm like, 'Wow!' I was jumping up and down ecstatic. I couldn't wait to get up here and have our crack at it, too."
Troy Coughlin earned the victory with a holeshot over Von Smith in the final round. Coughlin ripped off a .018-second reaction time, getting a .107-second advantage on the starting line.
Coughlin's pass of 5.940 seconds at 250.92 mph was then more than enough to hold off Smith's run of 5.920 at 243.99 mph
"Von is fast," Coughlin said. "He was faster than us and was driving a little bit better, so we knew we had to dig deep and get it tuned up a little bit. The track looked like it was going to take it. I was backing up from the burnout, and I said, 'Let's try and leave with him because I know we can run with him.'
"When I put it in the second stage light, it was a little deep into it, so it probably killed another three-hundredths. But we had a good hot rod today, no doubt."
Coughlin, the No. 6 qualifier, earned a holeshot win over Eric Latino in the first round Saturday before taking out Mike Janis in the second round Sunday. Coughlin's run of 5.950 at 249.63 mph easily out-distanced Janis' slowing pass of 6.599 seconds at 167.84 mph.
That put him up against Rickie Smith in the semifinals in a matchup of the two most recent Pro Mod champs. Coughlin left first again, with a .045 light, and he outran Smith with a lap of 5.940 at 250.32 mph, beating Smith's 5.946-second run at 245.94 mph.
Smith had lane choice in the final, Coughlin and his team, led by crew chief Steve Petty, were up to the task.
"Steve has done an awesome job on this thing all weekend," Coughlin said. "He's been keeping it consistent, keeping it fast, keeping it from having problems. He and Brian (Metzenhiem) and Kyle (Pettis) and Mike (Rees) were perfect. It was just a perfect weekend for us."
And it came in his home state of Ohio, not far from JEGS headquarters in Delaware, Ohio.
"We've got a ton of people up here from JEGS.com, and a lot of friends," Coughlin said. "My wife Julie's family is from Cleveland. It'll be a big party tonight. Doubling up with Mike, wow, what a weekend."
