Pro Mods in Brazil
It is with great excitement that we announce the unveiling of two of the newest PLR 481X powered Turbo Pro Mods in Brazil! The cars consist of a red 1968 Camaro owned and driven by Roderjan Busato and a white 1969 Camaro owned and driven by Fabio Costa. Both cars are powered by the PLR 481X and twin Precision 94mm turbochargers.
Pro Line Racing's own, Steve Petty and Eric Dillard, recenctly made a trip to São Paulo International Dragway in Brazil, to help get their cars ready for racing action. After a few test hits, they felt that they had reached a good stopping point and these cars are race-ready! The current record for Pro Mod in Brazil is in the 7.40's, which will probably be reset after their first couple passes!
Both cars will run at the Brazilian Nationals drag racing events which will happen in Curitiba, Sao Paulo and Rio Grande Do Sul. We can't hardly wait to hear the results as this hard working team paves the way for Brazilian Pro Mod racing! Stay tuned to our website for more news!

Jose's Turbo Pro Extreme Camaro
Jose Gonzalez, winner of last year's Shakedown at E'town and Street Car Supernationals in Las Vegas, has one thing on his mind right now, taking turbocharged drag racing to the next level. Gonzalez purchased a brand new Jerry Bickel Race Cars built '69 Camaro to compete in ADRL's fastest class, Pro Extreme! The El General Racing team Camaro is powered by the PLR 481X engine paired with twin Precision turbochargers. Gonzalez will be racing as a team with fellow Pro Extreme racer Danny Lowry. Steve Petty will take on tuning duties with the Camaro and Lowry's PX Mustang.
With two PLR 481X powered cars in Pro Extreme, we can't wait to see what these machines are capable of!
Troy Coughlin Races to Norwalk Pro Mod Final
NORWALK, Ohio (July 8) -- For the second time in the last three races, Troy Coughlin raced his twin-turbocharged JEGS.com Camaro to a runner-up finish in the NHRA Pro Mod Series presented by ProCare Rx.
Following a strong, second-place showing in Englishtown, N.J., last month, Coughlin returned to top form in his native Ohio this weekend, qualifying No. 1 and mowing down Mike Knowles, Donald Martin and Roger Burgess before bowing to Donnie Walsh in the money round at the NHRA Nationals in Norwalk.
"We've got a good race car," said Coughlin, a past NMCA world champion. "We started the weekend hoping to move up in the points and win some rounds, and we did that. With some of the issues we had with the car through qualifying, to put it on the pole after the last qualifying attempt in the heat was impressive. Then we turn around and have a great raceday. I couldn't be happier."
Coughlin and crew couldn’t get down the track Friday but jumped from out of the field to the top qualifying spot Saturday morning with an impressive 5.949 at 250.64 mph.
Temperatures cooled a bit overnight and everyone was quicker Sunday, including Coughlin, who posted two more 5.9s en route to the final round. With the trophy on the line, Coughlin's car simply overpowered the track and he could only watch as Walsh sped away for a 5.893-second, 251.95-mph win.
"We made some good consistent runs through eliminations and got into the final," Coughlin said. "It was a good race against Donnie, and we knew it was going to be a good race. We just tried to get after it a little bit too much. Between that and the race track starting to come down in temperature a skosh, we overdid it.
"He'd been running .88, 89, and we'd been running .90, .91. Shoulda, woulda, coulda, but I agree with all the choices we made going into it. We made good runs, it just didn't turn out our way this time. But it will, it will someday. We get an A for effort."
The Pro Mod tour is off until Aug. 29-Sept. 3 when the 58th annual Mac Tools U.S. Nationals pres. by Lucas Oil roar to life in Indianapolis.
"Our time is coming soon," said Coughlin, who moved up one spot to fifth Sunday. "This is a championship-caliber team with good backing from JEGS.com. It's strong. We've got a great car and we've got another car coming that's probably going to be a little bit meaner than this one. We're going to work over the summer break on power and try to come out swinging in Indy."

Josh Klugger Wins NWO Nationals
REYNOLDS, GA (June 30th) – With record highs across the country and very few races this time of year, the NWO Nationals literally hosted some of the hottest racing action we've seen! The 150+ degree track was very unforgiving during the day, but once the sun went down, it offered excellent racing conditions.
Josh Klugger, of Fiscus/Klugger Racing, took the wheel of the drag radial Mustang with intent to continue their dominance. Klugger qualified #2 with a 4.57@169mph, which set up some exciting match-ups on his way to the finals!
In eliminations, Klugger breezed through a bye run with a 4.70@175mph. Next, Klugger faced Tony Ridenour in the supercharged Camaro. He ran a 4.55 to Tony's 4.77 and moved on to match up with Carlton Thompson where he went 4.58 to Thompson's 4.62!
Klugger started round 4 of eliminations against Keith Szabo in his twin turbo Foxbody. Klugger flew by Szabo, running a 4.58@169mph! The final race had Klugger lined up with Stevie "Fast" Jackson. This is where he showed off his driving skills, he began with an impressive .012 reaction time and a 4.53@177mph to take the victory!
Congrats to Josh, Kevin and the rest of the hardworking Fiscus/Klugger Racing Team!
Quickest Turbo Car in the World - Danny Lowry
RICHMOND, VA (June 23rd) –The ADRL U.S. Drags V event at Virginia Motorsports Park was full of ups and downs for Pro Extreme racer Danny Lowry. However, the ups far outweighed the downs as he and the Pro Line Racing crew sent out a message to the racing world.
The 2009 Pro Extreme Twin-Turbo Mustang, powered by the PLR 481X and twin Precision 94mm turbos, has been picking up momentum since the Bristol race and looked ready to take on whatever was thrown at it. Lowry started qualifying with a new personal best, a 3.91@195mph! By the 3rd and final round of qualifying, Lowry scored another personal best by running a 3.85@198mph, which placed him in the #14 qualifier spot.
Going into eliminations, his tuner Steve Petty felt that the car was ready to take more power and as a result, Lowry laid down the quickest turbocharged run ever! He ran an amazing firstname.lastname@example.org!
In the 2nd round, Lowry had a bye run, but left before the tree was activated. The sun was in his eyes and he left early. It was a pretty tough break, but he drove it all the way down and the data showed more improvement than the 3.85 to the 3.80. It was a hard way to go out but we learned that we not only have a 3.70 car, but we have a competitive ADRL Pro Extreme car in the making. We look forward to the race in Martin and can't wait to see what this car is capable of! Congrats to Lowry, Petty, and the entire crew on this huge accomplishment!
On a separate note:
Troy Coughlin races to Pro Mod finale at E'Town
ENGLISHTOWN, N.J. (June 3) – The plan that
Coughlin finished runner-up to Danny Rowe in the finals, but more importantly the car and team functioned near flawlessly in the effort.
"These guys have been thrashing like mad to get the car to go straight on all four wheels," Coughlin said. "We were able to keep it under control and manage the power today. They gave me the best car they could give me.
"This is the way I envisioned we'd start the season off, but it's just taken a little while to get to where we're at. I couldn't be happier with this effort."
In the final, the JEGS.com Camaro was a little too anxious to get off the line, and Coughlin red-lit by -.113 seconds. Rowe's pass was a 5.910-second lap at 239.57 mph. After seeing that Rowe cut a dismal .164-second light himself, Coughlin was left thinking what could have been.
"Everything went as planned in the final round, it was just time to go in my head, I guess," Coughlin said. "I looked at Danny's reaction time, I was like, 'Wow we could have ran like 6.10 and still won.' But it's over and we left before he was late. That may have thrown him off."
After beating championship contender Leah Pruett on a holeshot Saturday night, Coughlin got a free pass to the semis after quarterfinals opponent Mike Janis wasn't able to answer the call to race. Then the JEGS car beat Kenny Lang in the semis to set up the showdown with Rowe.
"We had a nice break in the second round," Coughlin said. "I don’t know what happened to Mike's car, but it was nice to get that break. Our car still isn't 100 percent happy, and everybody knows we've got a long way to go.
"We had good reaction times until the final and just overall we made really good runs. I'm real excited about the direction we're headed."
"We've beat some tough people this weekend," he said. "We made a nice gain in points, cracking the Top 10. We're all looking forward to the next race already."
Up next for the Team JEGS team is the June 15-17 Ford Thunder Valley NHRA Nationals from Bristol Dragway in

Josh Klugger's Victory at Bradenton
The Fiscus/Klugger Racing team Mustang has already begun making a buzz in the Outlaw Drag Radial ranks this year. With a slew of record breaking low 4.30 runs and an amazing 4.27 at Holly Springs, this team knows that the target is on their backs this year. Last weekend at Bradenton Motorsports Park, Josh Klugger took the wheel as his teammate and fellow driver, Kevin Fiscus, took on tuning duties.
Klugger started it off right by taking the #1 qualifier spot with a 4.60@180mph! During the semifinals, Klugger set a new personal best and the track record for Outlaw Drag Radial and Limited Street trim with a 4.45@183mph! The final round of eliminations lined him up with Scott Husted and his 93 Mustang. Husted's 4.61@170mph was no match for Klugger's 448@183mph!
What a weekend for Klugger and the whole Fiscus/Klugger Racing team. Performances like this are what make this team so hard to beat. Congrats and best wishes as the season moves on!
Fiscus Breaks into the 4.20's in ODR Trim

During a Friday test and tune session at Holly Springs, Fiscus blasted off an impressive 4.27@187mph! This run earned them the record for the quickest legal Outlaw Drag Radial car and Stock Suspension car in the world!
This performance raises the question, Will we see drag radials in the 4.1X's? Either way, congrats to Kevin, Josh, and the rest of the Fiscus/Klugger Racing team!
John Kolivas Wins Holly Springs Shootout
The 1st Annual Holly Springs Shootout was a huge success that brought some of the world's fastest Outlaw Drag Radial and True 10.5 racers together to find out who has what it takes to win.
John Kolivas, driver of Jere Etheridge's twin-turbo PLR 632ci BBF powered Mustang, put on a driving clinic for the Mississippi crowd! Kolivas started the weekend with a 4.43@175mph, qualifying him #3 behind Kenny Hubbard and Kevin Fiscus.
Kolivas strung together a handful of consistent 4.50 second runs to make it to the finals, where he would matchup against Stevie "Fast" Jackson, in one of the greatest final rounds we've seen in long time! Kolivas ran a 4.529 to Jackson's 4.523, It looked like they crossed the beams at the same time but Kolivas' .016 light gave him the edge over Jackson's .034 reaction time. Kolivas took the win with a .012 margin of victory.
