Cody Coughlin

Cody Coughlin is meticulous in his approach to his racing career. He studies how other drivers attack a racetrack and handle interviews. He also observes athletes in all realms of sports to help future the ascension of his racing career. The Joe Gibbs Racing Development driver is doing all this, despite being just 20-years-old.

That same attention to detail has landed Coughlin a full-time ride in 2016 with Kyle Busch Motorsports in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.  Coughlin and fellow Joe Gibbs Development driver Daniel Suarez will be sharing a Toyota Tundra out of the KBM stables.

Coughlin’s path to the highest levels of motorsports parallels that of several of his peers, including that of his new boss, and JGR teammate, Kyle Busch. Coughlin began his oval track racing career in Quarter Midgets, but has since mirrored the path of NASCAR Sprint Cup Series winning driver Kyle Busch by racing in Late Models, the ARCA Racing Series and now in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.

In 2015, Coughlin enjoyed much success on the superspeedways and road courses alike.  He made two starts in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, including his debut with KBM at Michigan Int’l Speedway in August.  The then 19 year-old was near the top of the speed charts in each practice session and was knocking on the door to a top-10 finish when another competitor made contact with the KBM number-54 in the waning laps of the race.

The Ohio native also competed in the ARCA Racing Series on a part-time basis.  Coughlin collected two pole awards (Talladega Super Speedway and Chicagoland Speedway) and scored a runner-up finish in Talladega, AL.  Coughlin also was on the front-row for the season-opener at Daytona Int’l Speedway and finished in the top five.  He also made his road course debut and was a threat for the victory until a cracked header relegated him to an impressive top-10 finish.

Cody Coughlin made the step to ARCA in 2014.  The third generation driver made 11 starts in the ARCA Racing Series and scored eight top-10 finishes, including three top-five finishes.

Coughlin has also been among the most decorated Late Model racers in the country in recent seasons. Also in 2014, he scored a victory at legendary Winchester Speedway in Winchester, Indiana in CRA Super Series competition. The Winchester victory was a highlight in a Late Model career full of impressive statistics, including numerous ARCA/CRA Super Series and JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour victories, the 2013 JEGS Tour Championship, the 2011 JEGS Tour Howie Lettow Memorial Rookie of the Year title and a victory at the prestigious World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing at Florida’s New Smyrna Speedway.

Coughlin’s family is the center of his personal life. His mom, Di, and dad, John, are with him for every step he takes with his racing career. His sister Kennedi is a devout supporter of his racing endeavors and is his biggest cheerleader.

The youngster is also grateful to be teaming up with Joe Gibbs Racing and Kyle Busch Racing because the teams carry the same Christian values as he and his family does.
