Pro Modified, a 10-race series which competes as a part of the NHRA's championship drag racing platform, has been described as putting three species of wild territorial animals in a cage and expecting them to get along.
The volatile division features full-bodied cars with three different power adders racing under three different sets of rules. Those combinations include nitrous oxide-injected engines utilizing either carburetors or electronic fuel injection, superchargers or turbochargers. Maintaining parity has been a never-ending proposition for the NHRA's technical department. Establishing peace has rarely ever been achieved.

Of all his vast accomplishments, one that distinctly stands out to Troy Coughlin more than a decade later was the North vs. South Big Dog Shootout victory in 2005 that netted the longtime Pro Mod standout a cool $50,000 prize. With that in mind, you can imagine Coughlin’s excitement for a winner-take-all prize double that, which is precisely the case for the Drag Illustrated World Series of Pro Mod, Aug. 4-5 at Bandimere Speedway.
A $100,000 prize is on the line for the inaugural event – making it the biggest single-race payout in Pro Mod history – and as one of the invited participants for Saturday’s main event, Coughlin is thrilled to make his Pro Mod debut in Denver.
