Team Jeg's looking for win No. 4 for the season.

Team Jeg's drivers Jeg and Troy Coughlin hope to make it two wins in as many races when they roll the familiar yellow and black Jeg's Mail Order Chevrolet Cavaliers into action this week in Sonoma, California. The Pro Stock duo has combined for three Pro Stock victories already this season, and are confident in their chances of adding to that total this coming weekend.

Jeg Coughlin enters the Fram Autolite Nationals fresh off a victory in Seattle, which marked the 50th win for Team Jeg's since 1990. Jeg's Seattle victory was the twenty-fifth Pro Stock victory of his racing career.

"We are obviously excited about the win in Seattle," said Jeg. "The team is really starting to gel, and that is translating into strong performances on the race track. Seattle was on a short list of tracks that we hadn't scored a victory at. Sonoma is on that list as well. Hopefully we can cross it off this coming weekend."

Troy Coughlin is also eager for a return to action after a disappointing qualifying effort in Seattle. Troy is looking for a strong outing in Sonoma to help propel him into the top ten point standings.

"We struggled with our setup a little bit in Seattle," said Troy. "Unfortunately, if your off just a touch, that's all it takes to keep you from running on Sunday. Fortunately, I have a great team surrounding me that wants to win as bad as I do. We'll be ready when we roll into Sonoma."

Jeg and Troy are currently in the No.4 and No.15 positions respectively in the season long POWERade Championship Points chase. Qualifying for the Fram Autolite Nationals will begins this Friday.
