Troy Looks To Rebound In Seattle

Troy Coughlin is looking to rebound from a DNQ this weekend at the Car Quest Auto Parts NHRA Nationals at Pacific Raceway. The event is the 14th race on the 23-race NHRA POWERade Drag Racing Series schedule and is the second race of the "West Coast" swing.

"We hurt our engine in the final session in Denver," explained Coughlin. "We were making nice straight runs and the car was responding well to the set up, but that was last week. Our new challenge is this week in Seattle."

Coughlin has qualified four times in seven appearances at Pacific Raceways. He reached the semifinals in back-to-back events in 1999 and 2000.

"We have been hit or miss at this track in the past," said Coughlin. "The new racing surface should help things out and the conditions are normally pretty good for Pro Stock. We have a good game plan going into the race and it will be our job as a team to execute it."
