Gearing up for 2018
ALOT HAPPENED AT THE END OF THE 2017 SEASON, BUT FIRST, THE WINNERS OF THE LAST RACES: • Indy: Sidnei Frigo • Charlotte 2: Jonathan Gray • St. Louis: Troy Coughlin • Vegas: Stevie Jackson
Indy marked the first win by Brazil native Sidnei Frigo, which was exciting for all of us. Also, Troy Coughlin surpassed Mike Castellana in the points with his win in St. Louis, putting two rounds between them. Coughlin officially secured the 2017 Pro Mod Championship with a win over Castellana in the second round in Vegas.
An exciting piece of news for 2018 is E3 Spark Plugs has stepped up as the title sponsor for the year, with J&A Service staying on as a presenting sponsor. The NHRA coupled this news with an announcement explaining 2018 schedule changes for Pro Mod.
First, the Pro Mod Association will make a second trip to the Texas Motorplex for the AAA Texas NHRA Fall Nationals. The 12-race schedule will be maintained, and in order to do so, the Atlanta race has been dropped.
The second change regards race scheduling. Pro Mod will now receive four qualifying sessions: two on Friday and two on Saturday, with the first round of eliminations on Sunday.
We’ve enjoyed 2017 and believe it has treated us well. We’re looking forward to what 2018 and these changes will bring. Below is the official 2018 Pro Mod schedule. Be sure to come out and see us!
Troy Coughlin is once again the reigning Pro Mod Champ.
