» Erica Enders NHRA SpringNationals Saturday Update
Enders gunning for Houston three-peat

(4-30-2016) BAYTOWN, TX – Racing in her home state of Texas always puts a smile on the face of two-time Pro Stock champion Erica Enders. So does going fast with her Elite Motorsports/Mopar Dodge, which she did in qualifying for the 29th annual NHRA SpringNationals on Friday at Royal Purple Raceway.

Enders grabbed the No. 6 spot -- her second-best qualifying position of the season -- with a pass of 6.635 seconds at 209.14 mph.

"It is nice to be back home," said Enders, the 2014 and 2015 Houston winner. "Coming out on Friday and running a little bit better than we have been was certainly encouraging."

Enders and her Elite team continue to develop their new '16 Dodge Dart after NHRA mandated fuel-injected engines with a 10,500 rpm limit. Building a new car and tuning it to the new rules has been a challenge but one Enders and... [Read More]

Troy Coughlin, JEGS.com Pro Mod team heating up Houston

(4-30-2016) BAYTOWN, TX – The best way for JEGS.com Pro Mod driver Troy Coughlin Sr. to beat the Texas heat is to keep winning rounds.

With temperatures approaching 90 degrees, Coughlin raced to the second round of the 29th annual NHRA SpringNationals on Saturday at Royal Purple Raceway. The No. 2 qualifier, Coughlin hopes to go some more rounds Sunday when the NHRA J&A Service Pro Mod Racing Series event is slated to conclude.

"(Crew chief) Steve, Mike (Rees), and Kyle (Pettis) went down to Dallas and tested for a couple days and figured out a couple of things on the car," Coughlin said. "We're just trying to get a little closer than we were going into Gainesville. The test session was pretty good for the JEGS.com car. We're coming in here swinging hard."

Coughlin was one of only two drivers to qualify... [Read More]

Battling humidity and overnight rain storms that only exacerbated issues with the track surface, Coughlin and his Magneti Marelli offered by Mopar/JEGS.com Dodge Dart race team are doing their best to prepare a race car capable of scoring what would be Coughlin's fifth Pro Stock trophy at this facility. He previously won here in 1997, 1998, 2000, and 2010.

"It was a touch cooler yesterday and we made a pair of pretty good runs," Coughlin said. "Both were good through the first three gears but we wanted more down the back half of the track, so... [Read More]

Shane Gray zeroes in on Houston's victory circle

(4-30-2016) BAYTOWN, TX – Growing up in the oilfields around Artesia, N.M., Pro Stock driver Shane Gray feels right at home in Houston, the energy capital of the world. Now the driver of the Valvoline/Nova Services Chevrolet Camaro is hoping his familiarity with the local climes translates into a victory Sunday at this weekend's 29th annual NHRA SpringNationals.

"It would be very cool to win here," Gray said. "Houston was a regular stop when we were working the family oil business. You generally get all the stuff you need here and sell a good bit of the stuff you produce here, so yes, it's a city I know well. We also have a bunch of friends and supporters in the area, so that adds a level of excitement.

"Bottom line, we want to win. We need to start stringing round-wins together every race and put ourselves in position to... [Read More]

NHRA J&A Service Pro Mod Drag Racing Series standout Danny Rowe excited for direction of class heading to SpringNationals

(4-28-2016) BAYTOWN, TX – Danny Rowe started his 2016 NHRA J&A Service Pro Mod Drag Racing Series season by qualifying in the 15th spot in Gainesville. But even after just slipping into the field, Rowe posted a strong runner-up finish to get his year started on the right foot.

Defending NHRA Houston Pro Mod winning team adds new sponsor

(4-28-2016) BAYTOWN, TX – The Precision Turbo & Engine team celebrated an event win in Houston at last year's NHRA J&A Service Pro Mod Series race and took over the early season points lead in the class. This weekend's goal is to repeat that process with some help from new sponsor PTP Turbo Blankets out of Austin, Texas.

Besides participating with the team at this weekend's event in their home state, PTP Turbo Blankets feels right at home with the Precision Turbo & Engine Pro Mod team since the highest volume of requests for their popular Turbo Blankets come from customers that run Precision Turbo's on their import, street performance, and racing vehicles.

"Being able to support a championship caliber Pro Mod team makes a lot of sense to begin with, but when you account for the fact that the majority of our... [Read More]

Summit team aims to keep winning streak alive

(4-28-2016) BAYTOWN, TX – Five races into the 2016 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series, Team Summit Racing shows no signs of losing momentum going into the 2016 NHRA SpringNationals.

The KB Racing duo of Greg Anderson and Jason Line has dominated the Pro Stock class thus far with two wins for Anderson and three for Line. Anderson also won the prestigious K&N Horsepower Challenge. They want win six this weekend.

Many teams have struggled with the NHRA rule changes that include a new EFI system, rev limiter, and getting rid of hood scoops.

KB Racing has a winning setup, but they acknowledge other teams will catch up, so the race isn’t over.

“As the other teams start to close the gap, we regroup and figure out what we need to do to up our game and stay ahead of the pack,” said Anderson.
