Eager for a Strong Run at Berlin
Cody Coughlin will be making his third career start at Berlin Raceway this Saturday night. It will be his first start in a Super Late Model at the 7/16-mile oval. His previous two starts came in the JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour in 2011 and 2013. Cody claims the layout of Berlin Raceway is challenging to get the right setup in the car. This will be a great test for himself and his Team JEGS crew.
Short Track on His Bucket List
Cody Coughlin has had an opportunity to compete on a variety of racetracks in his young career already. When he was asked which short track he would like to race at, he was quick with his answer, Slinger Super Speedway in Slinger, Wisconsin. He went on to say what drew his attention to the quarter-mile track, located near Milwaukee, Wisconsin. It was the fast speed and high banking in the corners. But, the stories he has heard from his spotter Scott Wimmer has increased his curiosity to race there and hopes to soon.
Social media is becoming more and more popular each day. Cody Coughlin is also jumping on board with his own Twitter account. Fans are encouraged to follow his Twitter account @Cody_Coughlin.
