Team Jeg's ready to roll the dice in Las Vegas

Team Jeg's rolls into the desert play ground of Las Vegas, Nevada this weekend for the AC Delco Nationals. When you think of Las Vegas, you visualize bright lights, energy, excitement, and sometimes the occasional wager. If track history plays a part in the decision, Team Jeg's would have to be the obvious favorite for Pro Stock. The race will take place at "The Strip" at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. There have been two races held at the picturesque facility, both of which have been won by Jeg Coughlin Jr.

"We feel good about going to Vegas," said Jeg. "It's truly one of the premier tracks on the circuit and we have had a lot of success there. We've experienced some ups and downs this year. Winning for a third time in Vegas would be a real boost this late in the season."

Jeg's older brother and teammate Troy Coughlin should feel just as confident in his chances as he represents the yellow and black this weekend. Troy's Jeg's Mail Order Cavalier has been one of the strongest cars in the class for the past several events. Not to mention that Troy had a semifinal appearance at the Las Vegas facility last year.

"I'm pretty confident about Team Jeg's chances in Vegas," said Troy. "We knew that the move to an in house engine program wouldn't be an easy transition. But everyone has worked really hard, and we have made a ton of progress in a relatively short amount of time. This track has been good to us in the short amount of time that we have been racing at it. Hopefully we can keep the streak alive this weekend."
