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!
Jim Bell Wins Pro Turbo at MIR
We'd like to congratulate Jim Bell, driver out of Edmonton, Alberta, for bringing home a victory in the X-DRL Precision Turbo & Engine Pro Turbo class at MIR! He highlighted this weekend with a personal best firstname.lastname@example.org, in his PLR 481X-powered Pro Turbo / Pro Mod Mustang. We will keep our eyes on this racing team as they continue to get faster every race! Congrats to Mr. Bell and his crew chief, Tyler Coots!
Proflo LX Torana Hatch
Here is a cool video featuring one of our customers in Australia and his show quality LX Torana built to compete in the Pro Street Blown class. When the guys at Proflo Performance gave us a call about building a custom BBC for a twin turbo Torana, we never imagined a beauty like this! More to come, for sure!
Mills Wins in Tulsa
Oklahoma is becoming well known for it's street racing scene, but some of the fastest all-out race cars can be found there also. One of them resides in Sand Springs and is owned and driven by DeWayne Mills. Mills' 1968 Outlaw Drag Radial Camaro has something very special under the hood! A brand new PLR 481X!
Their first race outing was at the Mickey Thompson Shootout Series at Tulsa Raceway Park. To start the event, Mills qualified number #2 in the Pro Street class with a 4.66@171mph. He strolled through eliminations going 4.58@174mph, 4.52@178mph, and running a 4.67@148mph while pedaling to take the final victory!
This racing team will be a true contender in races to come, mark our words!

Carinci Wins at TMP
Pro Line Racing customer out of Canada, John Carinci, earned a hard-fought victory in the 2nd round of The Outlaw 10.5 Association series. Team Carinci not only won the event in Outlaw 10.5, but they also took the #1 qualifier spot and ran Low ET and MPH with a 4.20@189mph. Their yellow Pontiac Trans Am recently underwent some chassis modifications and a black paint job. It gets its power from a Pro Line Racing 540ci PB1600 combined with a pair of Precision Pro Mod 88mm turbos.
We will be watching Team Carinci as some of the big Outlaw 10.5 races start to pop up across the northeast and Canada.

Gerald Bunce's C6 Corvette
A few days ago we featured a 427ci LS engine owned by Texas racer, Gerald Bunce. It has found it's home in Bunce's 2008 C6 Corvette. If you had to describe this build with one word, it would be "Radical." From the twin turbo alcohol LS engine to the big slick tires, Bunce's C6 is a head turner.
Right now it isn't for sure what class(es) this car will race in, but Outlaw Drag Radial is a possibility and the LS record will probably be a goal. Bunce assured us one thing, this car will be as fast as he can make it!
Stay tuned for more updates as they get this car dialed in!
Fiscus Klugger Racing Goes Pro Mod
We got an email from Drag Radial racer Kevin Fiscus the other day with some big news for Fiscus/Klugger Racing. We know Kevin has been talking about running Pro Modified and after selling their current Drag radial car. Recently, the opportunity came up to purchase a 2012 Mustang out of R2B2 Race Cars shop. Don’t worry though, the team will still be solidly in the Drag Radial scene with their soon to be completed Mustang from Racecraft Inc.
As schedule allows, the team will run both cars at select events – like the ADRL and some Outlaw events where both Pro Modified and Drag Radial are offered. As we write this Kevin and Josh are headed to Route 66 Raceway in Joliet, IL for the 8th annual Nitto Tires NMCA/NMRA Super Bowl to get some testing under their belts with the new car. Running Pro Modified is a step up and the team looks forward to the challenge and the opportunity to expand their racing career.
“Fiscus / Klugger Racing is excited to step up and try our hands at ProMod racing but we are still equally excited about our new Racecraft Inc. Mustang which will run in Outlaw Drag Radial. The ProMod will be an entirely new ball game for us but with the continued support from the great companies that have brought us this far we have high hopes for our ProMod program”, said Kevin Fiscus. Current plans include running the ADRL in Memphis and if all goes well NHRA Indy. After that they will run NHRA, NMCA, ADRL and XDRL where schedule permits. I would also look for them at Orlando for the 20th running of the Orlando World Street Nationals November 6th -10th this year.
Larry Wood Wins at Atco
Larry Wood and Ron Schlessinger are on a roll as of late. After 2 races this year, they've won 1 and went to the semis in the other. Keeping that in mind, they approached an Outlaw 10.5 race in Atco last weekend with great confidence! With Steve Petty and Jamie Miller tuning on their side who wouldn't?
After Wood defeated Jerry Morgano in the the finals, Schlessinger said, "It went pretty good... the motor's been running great and the track was there!" Wood went on to go a 4.28 to take the win! They will be one of the teams to watch this year in the Outlaw 10.5 class!
Stay tuned for more updates from this race team!
Coughlin Takes NHRA Points Lead in Bristol
BRISTOL, Tenn. (June 16) – JEGS.com driver Troy Coughlin returned to the top of the NHRA Pro Mod points standings with a runner-up finish in the Ford Thunder Valley Nationals Sunday at Bristol Dragway.
Coughlin, the defending Pro Mod champion, fell to Rickie Smith in the final round but leads Smith by 10 points in the battle for the 2013 series championship.
"You always hate to lose, but we've got to consider the big picture, too." Coughlin said. "(Crew chief) Steve (Petty) and the guys have the car running great, and we got to another final round. We've been really consistent in this latest stretch, and that's a testament to how good this car is running."
Coughlin qualified No. 4 and took out Mike Knowles in the first round Saturday night.
On Sunday, Coughlin easily whipped past Kenny Lang in the second round with a pass of 6.001 seconds at 245.54 mph as Lang slowed to a run of 6.687 at 157.67 mph.
In the semifinals, Coughlin ran down top qualifier Danny Rowe with another 6.001-second run, this time at 246.53 mph, beating Rowe's pass of 6.028 at 241.80 mph.
In the final, Coughlin made his best pass of the weekend, 5.984 seconds at 246.26 mph, but fell to Smith's run of 5.991 seconds at 240.47 mph as Smith got a slight edge on the starting line.
"That's always a tough race against Rickie," Coughlin said. "He got the better of us this time, but we'll be fired up to get him next time we face off. It was a close one, but we just came up a few inches short."
Coughlin has raced to three final rounds in five Pro Mod races this season, including a victory in Charlotte. The class is now off until July 5-7 at Norwalk, Ohio.
"The car has run well in all kinds of weather this year," Coughlin said. "It's been fast, for sure, but it's been consistent, too. That's what wins in drag racing, so to have a consistent race car every week gives us confidence as a team and gives me confidence as a driver. I look forward to a great summer."

Coughlin's Corvette wasn't the only Pro Line Racing powered car on the property. Eric Dillard made the trip to Bristol with Jim Bell and his recently renovated PLR 481X-powered Pro Mod Mustang. Dillard was given the opportunity to take over driving duties at Bristol. In his 2nd NHRA appearance of 2013, Dillard started things off right by qualifying #8 with a email@example.com.
Dillard faced Mike Castellana in the first round of eliminations. Both drivers experienced tire shake, but Dillard recovered quickly to take the win with a firstname.lastname@example.org. Round 2 put him against #1 qualifier, Danny Rowe. Dillard had the advantage on the tree but had to let out when the car got loose on him.
Overall, this outing was very much needed for the Mustang. Look for this car to be competitive in Pro Mod events across the US and Canada.
Coughlin Runners-Up at Englishtown
ENGLISHTOWN, N.J. (June 2) – Troy Coughlin and his JEGS.com Chevrolet reached the Pro Mod final round of the Toyota NHRA Summernationals at Old Bridge Township Raceway Park for the second year in a row, but the reigning world champion again came up just short.
A year ago, Coughlin finished runner-up to Danny Rowe. This season, Coughlin charged all the way to the finals before falling to Mike Janis.
"I can't complain," Coughlin said. "Our stuff is running pretty good and we are going rounds and having fun. We were just trying to get the boost up as fast as we can and get the motor to accelerate in the hot air. It was just a bit more of a challenge. Steve (Petty, crew chief) and the guys did a good job. We got to the finals and made good headway."
Coughlin has now reached the final round two times in the last four races, following his victory in Charlotte. On a hot track this weekend, he made four consistent passes in eliminations but fell .0334 seconds short in the final round.
"We are excited about it," Coughlin said. "We wanted to win the race, obviously, but we came in here and made some decent runs. It was not as fast as we thought it would be, but we just kept picking at the tune up trying to get the car to run faster. Things were starting to come together the last couple rounds.
"The last round we just got maybe a little too aggressive, but you have to be fast to beat those guys."
After taking out Harold Martin in the first round Saturday, Coughlin made his best pass of the weekend in the second round on Sunday. His run of 6.005 seconds at 242.76 mph knocked out Mike Castellana, who slowed with a pass of 11.341 seconds at 80.35 mph.
Coughlin then had a run of 6.019 seconds at 243.99 mph to beat Rickie Smith's 6.264-second run at 175.57 mph in the semifinals.
Janis and Coughlin had nearly identical reaction times in the final, but Janis was able to earn his first career victory with a pass of 6.035 seconds at 240.51 mph, barely holding off Coughlin's run of 6.060 seconds at 244.12 mph.
"It was a good race," Coughlin said. "I'm pretty happy with that. We moved to second place, so we're gaining ground. It's not too bad."
