A win waiting to happen

Jeg Coughlin and his yellow and black JEG'S Mail Order Chevy Cavalier will return to Gateway International Raceway as the defending event champion in Pro Stock this week. The win was the first of eight that began a late season charge for the 2002 NHRA POWERade Pro Stock championship.

This year the reigning Pro Stock champion is fourth in the points. He has 663 points and is 58 points from taking over the No. 3 position.

"Our team is excited to come back to Gateway International Raceway and defend our title from last year," explained Jeg. "Our program has been picking up momentum the last handful of races and we know a win is just around the corner."

The 33-year old second generation driver has posted two runner-up finishes in the first half of the season. Jeg is also one of only three drivers who have qualified for all 11 NHRA POWERade Drag Racing Series events held so far this season.
