It's in the genes

Jeg Coughlin Jr. received a hero's welcome from 350 enthusiastic employees when he returned to JEGS Mail Order headquarters in Delaware, Ohio, earlier this week. Coughlin wrapped up his third Pro Stock title in dramatic fashion Sunday by rallying from third place in the standings to the No. 1 spot in two short rounds of the 43rd annual Auto Club of Southern California NHRA Finals in Pomona, Calif. He went on to win the race in his Chevrolet Cobalt, the 51st national event win of his career.

But Jeg wasn't the only one being saluted from the yellow-and-black crowd. Brothers Mike and John Coughlin also won titles in 2007. Mike claimed the Div. 3 Top Sportsman crown, while John won the Div. 3 Top Dragster championship.

JEGS associates had a banner made to honor the championship-winning trio that now hangs proudly in the main foyer of JEGS headquarters.
