Jeg Is Ready For Race Day

Jeg Coughlin and his JEG'S Mail Order Chevy Cavalier began the final day of qualifying looking to improve from the No. 6 position. Jeg was forced to shut off in the third qualifying session.

"We just got too aggressive in the third qualifying session and it bit us," said Jeg.

Good fortune shined on the reigning NHRA POWERade Pro Stock champion in the final qualifying session. He posted a 6.856 at 201.34 mph and remained in the No. 6 spot. Jeg will face off against Steve Schmidt in the opening round.

"I expected to see a better number up on the board in the final session," explained Jeg. "The car made a move to the left about 330-feet from the starting line. It felt smooth from the seat, but we must have lost a little momentum in the first half of the track. Things are looking good going into race day and our team seems to perform better on race day."
