Racing Series victory Sunday at the NHRA Thunder Valley Nationals at Bristol Dragway. This
weekend's Pro Mod racing, presented by the Real Pro Mod Association, was the seventh of 12 events
on the 2017 schedule.
Coughlin ran a 5.878-second pass at 253.09 mph in his JEGS Mail Order '15 Corvette to defeat No. 1
qualifier Shane Molinari and his S&T Truck Repair Inc. '68 Firebird's 5.881 at 254.76 for his first
win of the season.
"What can I say about those guys Steve Petty, Kyle, Mike, the Jegs.com team and everybody at Mac
Tools - they're a badass group of people," Coughlin said. "We've had a fantastic car for the last
race or so. We struggled a little bit in the middle part of the first half of the season, but it's
definitely coming around."
It was Coughlin's second consecutive final round appearance and 10th career win. He is currently
second in points while Mike Castellan maintains the points lead after a quarterfinal finish.
NHRA J&A Service Pro Mod Drag Racing visits Norwalk, Ohio for the Summit Racing Equipment NHRA
Nationals at Summit Racing Equipment Motorsports Park June 22-25.
