Jeg Coughlin is looking at the big picture

Jeg Coughlin Jr will enter the 10th event of the 2003 NHRA POWERade Drag Racing Series sitting in the No. 4 spot in the points. He has 520 points and is 290 points behind the top spot.

"Our goal is to win the 2003 NHRA POWERade Pro Stock championship," said Jeg. "Last year we did not win a race until St. Louis. We were able to put a string of victories together and make a late season charge."

The two-time Pro Stock champion knows that it takes consistency throughout the season to be on top at the end. However, Jeg has been able to put together multiple strings of victories throughout his career that put him in contention to win championships when other felt as though it was out of reach.

"There is a lot that can and will happen between now and the end of the season," explained Jeg. "Our engine R&D program is moving forward and focusing on building more horsepower. There is no doubt that horsepower is king in Pro Stock and you are always trying to hit a moving target. The competitiveness of Pro Stock is amazing it has gotten more and more competitive over the last couple of years."
