This was also the first final round for the younger Coughlin Jr., who was looking to get Mustangs first Pro Stock win since the late 1990’s. 

Jeg Coughlin Jr. went 6.680 at 206.92 mph. Troy Coughlin Jr. went 18.623 at 43.91 mph. 

In addition, this was the first-time that the two teammates faced each other since the younger Coughlin Jr. joined the Pro Stock ranks in July. 

The uncle had a better reaction time as he went 0.033. The nephew was trailing, as he was 0.050. 

Seconds after trailing at the starting line, the nephew experienced severe tire shake and shut it down. He then coasted down the track. 

The uncle picked up his second win of the 2020 season. He also won the NHRA Arizona Nationals at Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park in Chandler, Arizona. 

In addition, the older Coughlin Jr. claimed his 65th career Pro Stock win.
