Team Jeg's Looking for Strong Finish at NHRA Finals

It has been a dynamic 2001 Pro Stock season for Jeg and Troy Coughlin of Team Jeg's. Both drivers look to finish the season with a strong finish at the Automobile Club of Southern California NHRA Finals in Pomona California this weekend. The team continues to make strides with its engine program, as both cars continue to run in house big blocks in their Chevrolet Cavaliers.

Reigning Pro Stock Champion Jeg Coughlin has good reason to be optimistic about his chances at Pomona Raceway this weekend. Jeg has driven the yellow and black to the finals for three consecutive years and was the race winner in '99. Jeg can move as high as third in the points with a strong finish at the season ending event.

"Team Jeg's has had to overcome a lot of adversity this season," commented Jeg. "With the change to the Cavalier and the introduction of our in house engine program, we have had our hands full. The team has remained focused and confident through everything and they are hungry for another victory. Pomona has definitely been a great track for us. Hopefully we can continue our success there this weekend."

It takes more than one win in a season to douse the competitive fire of Troy Coughlin. Troy has remained one of the stronger cars in the class since his ground breaking win in Reading, Pa. earlier this season. Troy is determined now more that ever to put his Jeg's Mail Order machine back into the winner's circle. The NHRA Finals will be his last opportunity in the 2001 Pro Stock season.

"I hope to have a big weekend in Pomona," said Troy. "The competition in the Pro Stock class is really stout right now. The team has been working tirelessly on the production of engines for our Chevrolet Cavaliers. We knew that we couldn't just switch engine programs and come out swinging. Any time that you make a change that significant, you have to be ready to experience some growing pains. It looks like we have turned the corner with the program, and Jeg and I should both have some competitive pieces under the hoods of our Jeg's Mail Order Machines this weekend. I would like nothing more than to have an all Jeg's final this weekend. It would be a great way to finish off the year."

Qualifying for the Automobile Club of Southern California NHRA Finals will begin on Friday, November 9th.
