You read that right. We at E3xtreme have learned from our sources that the 2015 Pro Mod standout Troy Coughlin Jr. will be piloting a Kalitta Top Fuel car in 2017.
Details are still pending right now, and we understand there may be a press conference coming very soon in regards to this. Earlier this year TJ obtaining his T/F License.
This is exciting news to say the least. TJ proved in 2015 that he was a force to be reckoned with in the Pro Mod class. He is certainly the future of drag racing and comes from a long line of family that drag races. He might be young, but has plenty of years behind the seat as well.
Still a developing story, but we can't wait to hear more details on this. We are really looking forward seeing the new blood in 2017!
