Jeg goes out in second round.

The first round match up between Jeg Coughlin and Scott Geoffrion was a fan pleaser as expected. Both drivers carefully staged their respective cars. The JEG'S Mail Order Chevy Cavalier took temporary residence in the left lane.

Jeg took his time turning on the last stage light. The starting line advantage went to Coughlin by .020 seconds (.022 to .042). The yellow and black JEG'S machine never looked back and took the win light by .0287 seconds at the stripe.

"We knew we were going to have to be on our game to get by the first round," commented Jeg. "The car took off to the right during the launch from the starting line and recovered quickly. Once we were in the middle of the groove the car really hooked up all the way to the big end."

The second round put Jeg head-to-head with ex-Pro Stock Truck driver Taylor Lastor. Lane choice went to Lastor and he took the right lane.

Coughlin launched from the starting line and the lost traction almost instantly. The car went into severe tire shake and he was forced to shut off.

"We were just too aggressive down low," said Jeg. "We missed an opportunity to pick up some points this weekend and we will be ready next weekend."
