Fresh off a championship-winning season in his .25 Midget, 14-year-old third-generation racer Cody Coughlin already is working towards a future in a Stock Car. Under the guidance of oval track veterans Gary St. Amant and Clay Filson, Coughlin recently climbed behind the wheel of a ASA Late Model Stock Car and made several circuits around Columbus Motor Speedway.

By all accounts, the son of drag racing titlist John Coughlin and grandson of NHRA legend Jeg Coughlin Sr. looked very sharp in the high-horsepower Impala SS.

“For his first laps around Columbus I think he did a heckuva job,” John said.

Cody will continue testing with hopes of joining the ASA North Series later this season.
