Jack Coughlin is making a name for himself across the sports spectrum. The oldest son of multi-time drag racing champion Mike Coughlin, Jack has excelled in several sports, from football to basketball to baseball and, of course, drag racing.
Driving the JEGS.com dragster, Jack won his first Junior Dragster race in 2012, building on his impressive athletic resume. Jack was an integral member of his school's football team that won its age bracket in 2011, and he also played baseball on a traveling all-star team.
Jack also is an avid golfer, spending time on the links with cousins Cody and Jeggie.
After a solid season learning the ropes as a drag racer in 2012, Jack will again race the JEGS.com Junior Dragster in 2013, with father Mike returning as crew chief. Others on the JEGS team include Greg Cody, Tom Stillwell, Matt Flowers and Jim Daddus of American Race Cars.
