Mike Coughlin Looking Solid in California

Mike Coughlin entered the Automobile Club of Southern California NHRA Finals a heavy favorite for the victory in the final race for the Pro Stock Truck class. The Team Jeg's driver has set the class on fire with a series of strong performances over the final stretch of the 2001 season. With the championship just out of grasp, the Ohio native set his sights on the final race of the season in Pomona, California.

Mike came out swinging with a strong performance in the first round of qualifying. Mike ran the second best pass of the session at 7.462 seconds at 181.76 mph.

"We got the start we were looking for," said Mike. "We've had a lot of success of late in our Jeg's Mail Order S-10. Starting the weekend off with a good run certainly helps us as we search for the right combination for Sunday."
