Pro Stock's Dallas Glenn Goes Back To Back, Grabs Wally From The Strip At Las Vegas Motor Speedway

Hagan and Glenn win again, Brown rejuvenated by Four-Wide glory

Pro Stock points leader Glenn, driving the RAD Torque Systems Chevrolet Camaro, grabbed a second consecutive victory after sealing the deal at the Winternatonals two weeks ago. His Las Vegas win in the four-wide format echoes the very first win of his young professional career – he earned his first Pro Stock trophy at the Charlotte Four-Wide Nationals in 2021, his rookie season.

"Four-wide is definitely chaos," said Glenn. "Even though I was definitely not the best today, I was just barely good enough to get it done, and that's what matters in four-wide. You don't have to win the first two, you just have to win the last one. Going into that final, I knew Cristian has been driving very, very well, and I knew I was going to have to be good. I think T.J. and I staged about the same time, and then I almost didn't get my foot down. When I let go, it was like 'Oh, I didn't think I got that very good.' I was just running through the gears, it went a little bit left, and it sounded a little weird near the finish line – but then I saw my win light come on and start flashing. I was just super pumped up."

Glenn was the provisional low qualifier on Friday at The Strip and ultimately forfeited the top spot to KB Titan Racing (KBT) teammate Matt Hartford. Starting from the No. 2 position, Glenn squared off with KBT teammate Kyle Koretsky, Harlow Sammons Racing campaigner Mason McGaha, and part-time Pro Stock competitor Steve Graham, who was making his second start of the season.

A 6.636-second pass at 206.51 mph sent the win light flashing for Glenn, meaning he was the winner of the round, while Graham's steadily lit win light signified that he was runner-up for the round and would move ahead on a 6.701.

Glenn's 6.654, 205.98 in the second round guaranteed a third trip to a four-wide final and the 10th final of his career. KBT's Deric Kramer also advanced from the quad with a brilliant .006 reaction and 6.680, 206.10.

On the other side of the ladder, Gatornationals winner Troy Coughlin Jr., a 2021 Charlotte Four-Wide finalist, clocked a 6.638, 207.59 in the first round to move ahead along with Elite Motorsports teammate Cristian Cuadra.

Coughlin was stout at the starting line in round two, launching with a .027-second reaction time and driving the Castle Chevrolet Camaro to a winning 6.663, 206.86. Cuadra also advanced in his Corral Boots Camaro, utilizing a .009 light with a 6.669 to hold back Greg Anderson, who was .032 at the hit and 6.657, 205.91 at the final stripe.

In the final, Glenn was second-quickest in terms of elapsed time to Coughlin, but a better reaction time – .039 to .051 – tipped the scales in the third-year competitor's favor. Glenn won the race on a 6.649, 206.29 to Coughlin's 6.646, 206.35.

"This is absolutely the best car I've ever had, by far," said Glenn, who leads Coughlin in the points by 51 markers. "I want to capitalize on it the best I can. [Having the points lead] is something new; I've always been hungry chasing somebody, now I have to fend off the wolves coming for me. It's a little bit different of an experience, but I'm going to enjoy it as long as I can."

The NHRA Camping World Drag Racing Series season continues with the second and final four-wide event, the Circle K NHRA Four-Wide Nationals at zMAX Dragway outside Charlotte April 28-30.
