Jeg Coughlin looks to turn excitement into a win.

The reigning NHRA POWERade Pro Stock champion remains upbeat going into the seventh race of the season even though he is winless so far this season. Jeg knows just how fast things can change in this ultra-competitive class.

"Our goal is to win the championship and successfully defend our title," said Jeg. "There are plenty of races to go (17) until the end of the season. There is a lot that can happen between now and then. We just need to put our best foot forward and put ourselves in the position to win."

Jeg will enter the seventh race of the season sitting in the No. 4 position in the NHRA POWERade Pro Stock championship. He has 313 points. Coughlin knows there are a number of drivers on his heels and needs to stay a step ahead of all of them.

"Pro Stock is as competitive as it gets as a class," explained Jeg. "We have seen this trend increase over the last couple of years. It is an exciting time to be a true fan of Pro Stock. It is great side-by-side racing from start to finish and it does not make a difference if you are in the drivers seat, in the stands or watching the coverage on ESPN."
