Troy Is Eager To Return To Chi-Town

The last two events have Troy Coughlin singing a different tune. He is currently in the No. 21 position in the NHRA POWERade Pro Stock championship with 16 races remaining. Coughlin has 113 points and can make a bold move up in the NHRA POWERade Pro Stock championship with a strong performance this weekend.

"We are heading in the right direction," said Coughlin. "We have had some success at Route 66 Raceway in the past, so we are eager to return. Our team is going to do some testing in St. Louis with Jerry Bickel (chassis builder) before rolling into Chicago and that should help to get the car to go straight and win rounds."

Two of Troy Coughlinâ^À^Ùs ten career final round appearances have come in Chicago as he was runner-up in 1999 and 2000. Both times to Warren Johnson. He has also qualified in the top half of the field five times in nine races here.
