Troy Coughlin picked up his second win of the 2013 season in the NHRA Pro Mod Drag Racing Series at
the NHRA Toyota Nationals at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The race is the final in 2013
for NHRA's popular 250-mph doorslammer touring series.
Coughlin, the 2012 world champion in the class, also earned his fourth career NHRA Pro Mod Drag
Racing Series victory by taking his turbo-powered JEGS.com Chevy Corvette past Danny Rowe in the
final round with a run of 5.913 seconds at 248.34 mph. Rowe and his supercharged Agave Underground
Tequila Camaro went 5.975 at 242.63 in the championship round.
It topped off a strong display in eliminations for Coughlin, who finished second in the points
standings. After qualifying No. 2 with a 5.922 at 245.99, Coughlin claimed a victory in the first
round over Dan Stevenson by going 5.918 at 245.72 on Saturday.
Coughlin's Sunday started with a weekend-best pass of 5.889 at 246.75 to move into the semifinals,
where he knocked off Mike Knowles with a run of 5.902 at 247.29.
Rickie Smith claimed his first NHRA Pro Mod Series world championship, having clinched the world
title heading into the event at Las Vegas.
