In Front Of The Hometown

Troy Coughlin and his three brothers will have the power of the hometown crowd in their corner when The Pontiac Excitement Nationals start this week at National Trail Raceway. The race is the 11th stop on the 23-event NHRA POWERade Drag Racing Series schedule.

"I always enjoy racing at our home track," said Troy. "To race in front of our 350-plus associates at JEG'S Mail Order, friends, family and all of the loyal race fans in Central Ohio is a lot of fun."

Troy Coughlin and his yellow and black JEG'S Mail Order Chevy Cavalier have scored one runner-up finish so far this year. He is on the verge of breaking back into the top-ten in points with a strong performance this weekend.

"I am excited to get to track and race," explained Troy. "There are so many people in our corner that want to see us do well. Winning the event would guarantee the largest and most memorable winners circle the NHRA has ever seen."
