Troy is ready for Las Vegas.

Troy Coughlin is eager to get back behind the wheel of his yellow and black JEG'S Mail Order Chevy Cavalier. Troy has already experienced highs and lows in the three races contested so far in the 2003 NHRA POWERade Drag Racing season. Troy posted a runner up finish at the second race and a DNQ at the last race.

"We hurt some engines during testing before Gainesville and it really set us back going into the race," explained Troy. "This was the first time in over a year and half that we have experienced any breakage in the engine department."

Troy is currently No. 8 in the NHRA POWERade championship. With a strong performance at the next to events Troy Coughlin could make a jump that could put him firmly into the top-5 of NHRA's most competitive professional class.

"I expect our team to be ready when we pull through the gates in Las Vegas," said Troy. "We have spent a lot of time preparing at the shop as a group and everyone on the team is excited to get back to the track."
