TROY COUGHLIN JR. GETS FIRST CAREER NHRA PRO STOCK WIN WITH A RJ BUILT CAMARO

There have been plenty of valleys in the 2022 NHRA Pro Stock season.

However, through hard work Troy Coughlin Jr. and his Elite Motorsports finally reached a peak on Sunday.

Coughlin, a superstar Sportsman racer, finally grabbed his inaugural NHRA Pro Stock victory beating his teammate Erica Enders in the finals of the FlavR-Pac NHRA Northwest Nationals near Seattle.

Coughlin clocked a 6.638-second elapsed time at 208.68 to edge Enders, who had a 6.644-second elapsed time at 209.17 mph.

“First I have to give all the credit in the world to Mark Ingersoll and Rick Jones and the rest of my team, including Richard Freeman, just everybody at Elite Motorsports,” Coughlin said. “They just worked so hard and to have a Pro Stock car make that many good runs this weekend in the heat out here is extremely impressive. I watched this my whole life, and it is extremely difficult. You can ask my grandfather and he will tell you how difficult it is.


“What an honor to win today. What a great place to win. I’m tickled to death.”

Coughlin ousted Fernando Cuadra, Camrie Caruso, No. 1 qualifier Greg Anderson and then Enders, who had won four of the last six Pro Stock races, including the most recent event in Sonoma, Calif.

“I missed the tree against Fernando, but my guys saved me,” Coughlin said. “Second round, against Camrie the car was phenomenal. The car is a blast to drive, and I have such a great group behind me.”
