Mike Coughlin is Looking For Victory in Final Pro Stock Truck Race

The Automobile Club of Southern California NHRA Finals marks not only the end of the 2001 season, but the end of the Pro Stock Truck class as well. Team Jeg's driver Mike Coughlin would like nothing more than to leave his mark in the NHRA history books as the last driver to win in the Pro Stock Truck class.

Mike has assembled a string of strong performances since his win at the Mac Tools U.S. Nationals in September. Mike followed the win in Indianapolis with another victory in Memphis. He qualified number one at the next race in Joliet setting a new national record for elapsed time and speed in the process. He continued his late season charge with a final round appearance in Ennis, Texas. The Ohio natives performance over the past several events speaks for itself. Mike rolls into the Pomona Raceway a legitimate favorite for the win in the final event of the season.

"There's no denying that we have had the hot hand in our Jeg's Mail Order S-10," commented Mike. "The championship is out of our grasp, but winning the final race in the history of the class would be a great way to cap off the season for Team Jeg's. Winning the last race won't be an easy proposition, but we should have as good a chance as anyone if we execute."

Mike Coughlin is currently fifth in the Winston points chase. He can move as high as fourth with a good showing in Pomona.
