Troy Coughlin is focused on improving

Troy Coughlin returned to the track at Heartland Park Topeka as the defending Pro Stock winner. In the first of four scheduled qualifying sessions Troy posted a run of 6.911 at 199.17 mph. The JEG'S Mail Order Chevy Cavalier ended the session just south of the bump in the No. 18 position.

The second session started as the sun began to set.  Troy posted a 6.914
at 199.43 mph.  His run was not improvement over the previous session.

"We expected to run stronger today," said Troy. "Tomorrow will bring us two more opportunities to improve and we will use the data from the other JEG'S Mail Order Chevy to do it."
