Troy Coughlin is looking at the big picture

Troy Coughlin is currently sitting in the No. 18 spot in the NHRA POWERade championship. He has 196 points and a runner-up finish after seven events.

"The six drivers ahead of me are within one round of points," explained Troy. "With a strong performance this weekend we can make a big move forward. But, more importantly is where we want to be at the end of the three-race stretch. Our goal is to be inside the top-ten before we get to Columbus."

The importance of performing well throughout the next three races (Englishtown, Topeka & Chicago) will be a task many in NHRA's most competitive class are gunning for. Troy is hoping the recent changes made in the team will help propel them to stronger showings on race day.

"The changes we have made recently to the car and personal have already shown to be a step in the right direction," said Troy. "Having two cars set up identically is a real boost to our program and should translate into round wins for our team."
