It started Friday afternoon during the rain delayed Atco Lucas Oil Divisional. No, actually it really started two weeks earlier at the Atco event which was called after rain had halted the action with three rounds of racing completed. The race would resume in two weeks at the Cecil County Lucas event with 14 cars left in Super Gas. With that many cars still in the running, the chances of Troy Coughlin Jr and Jason Kenny meeting in the final were distant at best.

Troy's trip to the winner's circle at Cecil began at the Atco event two weeks earlier

But after the quarterfinals at Cecil, both Jason and Troy were still in the hunt and were on opposite sides of the ladder setting up a possible final round matchup.

Troy, the son of 2012 NHRA Pro Mod World Champ Troy Coughlin Sr and calls Delaware Ohio home, normally races out of Division 3 but was on the east coast racing at a high dollar bracket event the following week and decided to enter the Atco Lucas race.

Jason Kenny

Jason, a regular on the NHRA Northeast Division scene as is his father Al Kenny, is the brother of Samantha Kenny, who is married to Troy’s uncle, Jeg Coughlin Jr. I don’t know if this makes Troy Jr a second brother in law, a distant cousin, or whatever, but both cars have the Jeg’s logo prominently displayed on their Corvettes and there is no mistaking Troy’s affiliation with the Jegs brand as his car is painted in the Jegs yellow and black color scheme.

Back to the Atco race, all hopes for a Troy Jr versus Jason final were dashed in the semifinals as Troy lost to eventual winner Tom Stalba Jr in a breaking out 9.868 to Stalba’s 9.905. Jason won his semifinal race over the Oldsmobile roadster of Derek Clark but lost the finals to Stalba on a hole shot.

Jason said after the Atco final “TJ and I have been close to running each other in the Super Gas final twice this year, at Maple Grove and Atco.  He made the Maple final and I lost in the semis.  I made the Atco final and he lost in the semi. Jason continued, “Losing the Atco final to Stalba was pretty deflating from a points perspective”. Editor’s note: Although Jason leads the D1 points chase in Super Gas with 397 points to second place Stalba’s 324, Jason has already raced at 6 of his allotted 8 LODRS events, Stalba has only claimed points at 4 events.

After the Atco race was competed, the Cecil County event cranked up and again, Troy Jr and Jason were on opposite sides of the ladder after the first round pairings but with nearly 70 Super Gas racers on hand, the chances of the two meeting in the finals were again, distant.

But like the Atco race, as eliminations progressed, it was apparent that the chances of Jason and Troy Jr meeting in the final were becoming a distinct reality. In round 5 Troy beat the PC Richard and Son Camaro of Pat Dehner and received the bye in the semis putting the Ohio driver in the finals. On his side of the ladder, Jason defeated the Chevy II of John Richmond in R5 and then took out former NED champ Matt Schurman’s Beretta in his semifinal race setting up a Troy Jr. vs Jason final.

“TJ and I made a bet if we ran each other in the Atco final.  So it was kind of cool when he came over before the Cecil final and made sure the bet carried over”, Jason said.

With the Cecil Super Gas title on the line, both drivers were ready after a long weekend and neither disappointed with a great final round. Troy and Jason had good reaction times with TJ’s 0.020 to Jason’s close 0.024 and got the win on a double breakout, 9.888 to 9.887. The difference at the stripe was 0.003 seconds which translates to 4 inches!

It was a pretty good day,” Coughlin said. “We made some really good runs thanks to a very competitive race car. We were in the right place at the right time a lot today.” Troy continued, “Cecil County was a cool track. That was the first time I’ve ever been there, but it was a good track. I’m so thankful for this opportunity, and I have to give a big thanks to all the associates at JEGS for all their hard work and support”.

TJ also had this to say about his friendship with the Kenny family “Jason and the whole Kenny family are incredible people; they have always had my back and lent a helping hand.  I can’t thank them enough for being so fun and nice and really taking me in as they have when on the road with them.  You can count on “mom” or Carol to keep your stomach full and Al to check on me and the cars.  Also its great feedback with Al and Jason on track things as far as racing goes they have a lot of experience and have great insight.  Jason and I have a great friendship in fact at Atco before the rain we said if we meet in the final the winner gets some Miller Lite.  So far I got the beer, but the season isn’t over yet so you will more than likely see some Miller Lite slid Jason’s way very soon”.

After the Cecil final round Jason said “As far as the TJ race was concerned, I thought I would be happy no matter who won … until his win light came on.  I was grumpy for a few minutes, which is better than my usual couple hours.  He must have sensed that, as he gave me an ice cold Miller Lite before I could even shake his hand.” Jason added,” He invited me, my family and even my Corvette into the winner’s circle, a very cool gesture on his part.  Then before he left the track, he said “This was fun, let’s do it again at Indy.  I’d be cool with that”.

The Cecil win puts Troy Jr. solidly in the #2 spot in the Division 3 Super Gas points chase going into the Bowling Green LODRS, but like Jason, Troy only has two races to claim in 2014 while the man leading the D3 Super Gas chase, Illinois racer Luke Bogacki, has three races left on his dance card.

Thomas Stalba Jr took one of two titles at the Atco event by grabbing Super Comp during Friday's action

Thomas Stalba Jr took one of two titles at the Atco event by grabbing Super Comp during Friday’s action

Two weeks ago, the Atco Lucas Oil Divisional was so close to being completed. Only a handful of cars were left to race to determine the Sportsman winners but a heavy wet mist rolled into the South Jersey facility taking away any chance of finishing the event. The finals were moved to the upcoming Cecil County Lucas race in Bayview MD and during Friday’s qualifying action, the Atco race was completed

Getting to the finals wasn't easy for Stalba as he had to get around traveling Pro Sportsman racer Troy Coughlin Jr in the semis of Super Gas

Winning both the Super Comp and Super Gas portion of the Atco event was Atco regular Thomas Stalba Jr. Stalba took his Super Gas Corvette to a win over many time winner Jason Kenny’s Corvette roadster on a hole shot (9.932 to Kenny’s better 9.907) and moments later, drove his A&A Auto Salvage dragster to a win over William Hardifer’s dragster with a 8.924 to Hardifer’s red lighting 8.925. Earlier in eliminations Hardiifer beat the Jeg’s dragster of Troy Coughlin Jr while Stalba took out Richmond winner Amanda Boicesco in the semis to set up the final.

Competition Eliminator winner Michael Hanratty took his K/A Bantam from the pole position to a win over recently returning to the drivers seat, Charlie Greco’s V6 L/AA Chevy. Greco, who got back into his Cobalt after a year of Tom Stalba driving (?) qualified in the #2 spot and defeated former winners Al Ackerman and Joe Carnasciale while Hanratty had to get around the Pro Stock truck of Tom Miller and the dragster of Don Eckel to get to the finals.

Other winners at the rained out Atco event were:

Alcohol champs crowned before rain halts action at Atco Lucas Oil Divisional. Event to be completed at the Cecil County event in two weeks.

Cox, running out of the #5 qualifying spot in the East Coast Auto Electric Monte Carlo, defeated the similar Monte Carlo of Mickey Ferro in the final as Ferro got out of the groove, headed toward the wall, straightened the errant Chevy out, finally taking out the finish line blocks in the loss to Cox who ran a consistent 5.712 ET in the win.

Earlier in eliminations, Cox got the gift of the weekend when the #1 qualifier, Tony Bartone, had trouble staging his car as the body would not latch properly limiting Bartone to a quick dry burnout before staging. At the green the New York based Monte Carlo of Bartone made a violent move toward the centerline throwing out the chutes, ending Bartone’s day and putting Cox in the finals of Funny Car.

The finals of Top Alcohol Dragster were not as dramatic as Funny Car as McPhillips and his competition, the blown dragster of Joe Cantrell driven by Wayne Morris from Lincoln PA put on the race of the weekend at least by the times on the scoreboard. Morris was seriously late with a terrible 0.219 RT to McPhillip’s 0.022 light and McPhillips never looked back running a 5.323 to Morris’ 5.335. The run was the second quickest side by side run in NED history second only to the 2013 TAD final at Richmond where Randy Meyer beat Dan Mercier 5.321 – 5.330. Thanks to Lewis Bloom and Bob Frey for this tidbit of information.

Qualifying, which as postponed from Friday to Saturday due to the rain, had lots of surprises for the Alcohol racers as current Eastern points leader in Top Alcohol Dragster, Jackie Fricke, failed to get her Tom Conway tuned A/FD in the field with a best of 5.653. The bump going into Saturday night’s final session was a quick 5.483 held by Nevada racer Duane Shields and neither Jackie nor her team partner, the A/FD of John Finke could crack into the show. The track conditions were excellent as was the air throwing the crew chiefs a curve ball with their tune-ups.

In Alcohol Funny Car, Ferro faced off against Matt Gill, Bridgewater, Mass., and posted a winning run of 5.599 seconds, 248.39 mph in his ’08 Monte Carlo. Gill drove to a 5.816 second, 249.67 mph lap for his runner up finish. Ferro was off the starting line first and extended his lead as the two cars made it down the quarter mile. As Ferro’s car made it down the track there were some sparks and sounded as if he lost the engine as it crossed the finish line, but that didn’t matter as he got the win and took home the Top Alcohol Funny Car Wally this weekend. The win was Ferro’s first for 2014 and puts the Connecticut driver in the #1 spot in the Lucas Eastern Region points

After two days of unbelievable qualifying, Sunday at E Town was a toss up of great runs and races that were decided on which car got what little traction was available in the changing track conditions. The door cars got the worse of it with few side by side races but the fuel cars made up for the lack of photo finishes with a day of quick racing. Here is a look back at the Summernationsl 2014

The Alcohol racers had their day at Maple Grove on Saturday racing in front of a great crowd and beautiful weather. Taking the Top Alcohol Dragster title was long time NED racer Rich McPhillips from Phoenixville PA. McPhillip’s who qualified his A/FD in the #4 slot, took out Wayne Morris’ blown car in R1 and then put low qualifier Duane Shields on the trailer in the semis in one of the best races of the day, running a 5.416  to Shield’s close 5.431 to set up the final.

St Pierre (far lane) set a personal best in the second session of qualifying at MG. John Finke (near lane) failed to make the quick show

As has been the norm in D1,  Top Alcohol Dragster was the class of the field with some of the best drivers in the country vying for a spot in the elite top 8 qualifiers. Sixteen cars were on hand and sitting on the outside after qualifying was completed were former Division champs Karen Stalba, Dan Page, John Finke, and Dan Mercier, all four racers did not run quicker than the 5.532 bump spot set by the blown dragster of Richard St. Pierre. St Pierre, making his second ever NED Lucas Oil field, laid down his career best in the second session raising a lot of eyebrows especially since a lot of the D1 players failed to make the field.

Great side by side qualifying in the second session put Shields (near lane) in the #1 spot

Setting the pace for the dragster was former Lucas champ Duane Shields with a 5.263 followed by another former World Champ, Division Three racer Bill Reichert with a close 5.286. Also making the show was #3 Jackie Fricke, Rich McPhillips, Wayne Morris, Mike Kosky, and Brandon Greco making his return to NHRA drag racing in 2014 after his bad crash at E Town in 2012.

Former D1 Champ Karen Stalba needed to put down a quick pass in her final shot to make the field but the NJ based A/FD ended up pulling the front wheels up at the hit and had to shut the dragster off killing her chances of making the show.
