JEG'S Mail Order Racing Friday Pit Notes
After an almost two hour rain delay which happened when the Pro Stock cars were in the lanes the first pair of cars took to the truck. The Pro Stock cars deal with a very unique challenge here at Bandimere Speedway. The track is 5800' feet above sea level and there is a shortage of oxygen which is required by the 500 cubic inch engines to create horsepower.
Jeg Coughlin/Pro Stock:
With plenty of momentum from the recent Winston NO BULL SHOWDOWN Jeg Coughlin and this yellow and black JEG'S Mail Order machine pull into the water box in the right lane. The car launched hard from the starting line and blasted down the quarter mile. Jeg followed the middle of the groove all the way down the track. After the first qualifying session Jeg is resting in the number five position. Coughlin stated, "I believe that we have a good baseline to tune from and we gained valuable data on the track. I am very eager to get back into my car and make another run and improve my qualifying position."
Troy Coughlin/Pro Stock:
Troy was in the first pair for the first session. With no other cars running down the track in front of him the team rolled the dice. The JEG'S Olds Cutlass ran into problems gripping the newly prepared track. Troy left the starting line and charged out of the starting line beams. When Troy got to about the 330' foot clock the car started spinning and Troy was forced to shut off. After the Pro Stock field viewed Troy's run crew members were scrambling to raise the angle of the wing to create more down force to improve traction. "Being the first pair is luck of the draw. We will be ready the next time the JEG'S machine goes down the track," said Troy.
