Troy Coughlin Jr. makes best pass of the weekend in opening round Atlanta defeat

May 07, 2017

Race Recap: The last race of three straight, the SealMaster team and driver Troy Coughlin Jr., were looking to continue to learn and gain knowledge for the upcoming summer swing of races.

Unfortunately, after losing both Friday passes due to weather, Coughlin Jr. only got two laps at Atlanta Dragway and both of them failed to produce the results that the SealMaster team were looking for. A 4.083 second pass in the second Saturday session slotted the SealMaster team in 14th overall heading into Sunday.

The draw was defending Top Fuel champion Antron Brown. The SealMaster team had a clean 3.788 second pass, but Brown ran the second-best pass in Atlanta Dragway history cutting Coughlin Jr.'s day short. 

Statistics:
Qualified: No. 14 (4.083 sec., 199.58 mph) 

E1: Coughlin Jr. defeated by Brown - 3.788 sec., 304.67 mph to 3.702 sec., 328.78 mph

Quotable: “Well our weekend in Atlanta was cut short. We are making progress with this SealMaster Toyota; just making laps in the car and making notes on what I want to work on with myself. We will move along to Topeka and continue the progress there."

Point Standings: Ninth (-346); trails Terry McMillen by six points for eighth, leads Scott Palmer by 51 points for tenth
