Coughlin's are ready to go out with a bang.

The dominance that Team Jeg's has shown during the last half of the season is extremely impressive, even to the casual observer. Jeg Coughlin Jr will bring the NHRA Pro Stock championship home to Central Ohio for the second time in his short professional career.

"Even though the championship is locked up we are going to do the same thing that we do every week. Our goal is to have both of our Jeg's Mail Order Chevy Cavaliers in the final round to battle for the win," explained Jeg.

The Coughlin brother's have faced off in the final round at Pomona Raceway and the men in yellow and black are no strangers to the winner's circle. In 1999 the Coughlin family scored their first all-Jeg's professional final round at the Winternationals and set the tone for the season.

In the last nine events held at Pomona Raceway Jeg Coughlin has reached the final round six times and scored the win in NHRA's most competitive professional class three times in his short career. Coughlin has a score to settle at the track after he posted a DNQ at the 2002 season opener.

"Winning the last event of the season can make a serious statement through the so called off season," explained the 2002 NHRA POWERade Pro Stock champion.

Troy Coughlin is focused on closing the book on the 2002 NHRA POWERade season with authority. Troy will be first to tell you that he isn't pleased with his score card this season. The 37-year old has become accustom to finishing in the top-ten since he began competing in Pro Stock in 1984.

"We have found some problems that we believe have plagued us since we won in Topeka earlier this year. Our goal is to finish the season on a high note and carry the momentum into the 2003 season. Our focus as a team will be winning the last race of the season," said Troy.
