Jeg Coughlin Goes Out In Round Two

In the opening round Jeg Coughlin and his JEG'S Mail Order Chevy Cavalier went head-to-head against fellow Ohio driver Ron Krisher. Jeg launched from the starting line first by .004 seconds (.025 to .029) and had an impressive .999 60-foot time.

The win light came on for Coughlin. He posted a run of 6.826 at 201.31 mph.

"We made a solid run in the first round and that is the best way to start off on race day," said Jeg.

In the second round Jeg faced off against the current NHRA Pro Stock POWERade points leader. Anderson had lane choice by a mere .003 seconds.

The advantage off of the starting line went to Anderson (.004 to .024). The two cars were dead even at the 1000-foot clock and looked like they were welded together at the door handles. Anderson got the win by .0458 seconds at the stripe. Jeg posted a 6.855 at 200.71 mph.

"We made a solid run down low," said Jeg. "The team will head straight to Chicago and focus on making it happen in the windy city. I am looking forward to racing next weekend with all of my brothers."
