Jeg Coughlin is thirsty for a win.

The thirst for victory is hard to quench. Athletes routinely visualize themselves in situations where they come out on top. NHRA POWERade Pro Stock driver Jeg Coughlin Jr is no exception.

Jeg Jr. and his JEG'S Mail Order Chevy Cavalier will roll into familiar territory this week for the NHRA Mac Tools Thunder Valley Nationals. Jeg is currently sitting in the No. 5 position in the POWERade championship with 261 points.

"It is always energizing to come to great facilities like Bristol Dragway," said Jeg. "Bruton Smith and his group have done a lot in recent years to help elevate the sport of NHRA POWERade Drag Racing."

Jeg remains winless in the first five events. However, Coughlin knows the season is far from over and is very upbeat about the future.

"Our goal is to win the 2003 NHRA POWERade Championship," stated the two-time Pro Stock champion. "Pro Stock is as tough as it gets. Our team has been extremely busy preparing for the Mac Tools Thunder Valley Nationals and we would love nothing more than to score our first victory of the year here. Mac Tools has been a long time supporter of our racing program and it would be an added bonus to win at their event as a way to say thanks."
