JEG'S Mail Order Racing Thursday Pit Notes
Jeg Coughlin, Jr/Pro Stock:
Jeg, Jr's yellow and black JEG'S Mail Order machine rolled out of the trailer and took the number two position after the first qualifying session. Momentum is certainly with Jeg coming into this race. He was the runner-up at the last race and was also the runner-up last year at this event. "It's always nice when things are going your way. It really shows how the hard work and dedication of our team is paying off," said Jeg.
During the second session Jeg was forced to abort the run at about the 330' foot clock when the car started acting weird. "We were looking forward to making a strong six-second run during the second session. The fourth session tomorrow will give us the same opportunity, the conditions should be very similar." Jeg is currently in the number sixteen spot.
Troy Coughlin/Pro Stock:
Troy ran into problems during the first session and didn't run as competitive as the team would have liked. "We were off on the set up and the car let us know. The car just didn't respond well at all," said Troy.
During the second session Troy improved and moved up to the number nineteen spot. "We made a much better run during the second session. There is still plenty left in this car and the team will work extremely hard to get the set up that makes the car happy again."
Mike Coughlin/Pro Stock Truck:
After a disappointing first session, Mike showed that his truck is on target. Mike said, "We just made a mistake in the first session and having the data from John's run helped us going into the second session. The data from John's run was extremely valuable, but you use the ideas that work well. Both trucks are different and act different." After two sessions Mike and his #28 JEG'S Mail Order S-10 are in the number seven spot.
John Coughlin/Pro Stock Truck:
Pontiac Excitement Pro Stock Truck winner John Coughlin made a nice baseline pass in the opening qualifying session. John ended up in the number nine spot after the first session. John stated, "It's nice to roll out of the trailer and make a good baseline run. The data that we generated from this run will help for the entire weekend."
John showed that the team has a good handle on the set up of the truck under the current conditions. "Making an improvement like we did in the second session really keeps everyone upbeat. We seem to have a handle on what the truck wants and the data that we got from the run will further help throughout the weekend." John is holding down the number six position.
