Reigning two-time NHRA Pro Stock champion Erica Enders-Stevens will defend her latest title from the seat of a Dodge Dart… and with five-time Pro Stock champ Jeg Coughlin Jr. as her teammate. Elite Motorsports thus pairs drivers who between them have amassed 79 Pro Stock victories

NHRA Pro Stock cars will look radically different next season, as the arrival of fuel injection means the deletion of the giant hood scoops. Enders commented: “We’re entering a new era of Pro Stock and it's going to be awesome to take a new Mopar-powered Dodge Dart into 2016 and beyond. We won the last two championships with carburetors and now the goal is to win the first one with fuel injection.

“The Dart Pro Stock cars look awesome and it’s an honor and a privilege to represent Mopar moving forward, along with my teammate Jeg Coughlin Jr.”


Coughlin Jr., who clinched his most recent of five Pro Stock championships driving a Mopar-powered Dodge Dart in 2013, added: “The 2016 season is a turning point for the NHRA and the Pro Stock class.

“We’re really looking forward to the upcoming challenges. I am looking forward to working beside one of the greatest drivers in the NHRA, Erica Enders, and the greatest crew, including Rick and Rickie Jones, Mark Ingersoll and Brian ‘Lump’ Self, all talented and championship-proven crew chiefs.

“It will be a great year for the entire Elite Motorsports team.”
