In what has become an annual tradition in the month of October, Cody Coughlin and his Team JEGS crew will go pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

This year, Cody Coughlin will be driving racecars with the pink numbers and pink JEGS logos on his ARCA Racing Series car and Super Late Model.

“It’s always good to support a health cause, especially one that has affected so many women and families throughout the world,” Coughlin said.  “I am proud to drive cars with the pink colors on my cars in October to help provide awareness for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.”

The Coughlin family’s personal experiences with cancer drove them to assist in building awareness of the many faces of cancer and help generate dollars through race earnings to advance cancer research.

The JEGS Racing for Cancer Research ribbon on all cars and uniforms was designed to help create awareness.  The ribbon may be a simple symbol, but it displays a meaningful sentiment.  To order your JEGS Foundation Racing for Cancer Ribbon pin, decal or patch, visit JEGS.com and find it under the JEGS Foundation section.  100% of the proceeds of the sales go to the JEGS Foundation Racing for Cancer Research.

Team JEGS encourages everyone to learn more by visiting cancer.osu.edu and nationwidechildrens.org.

There will be two opportunities to see Joe Gibbs Racing Development driver competing in his special paint scheme in October.

He will be competing in the ARCA Racing Series season finale on Friday, October 3rd at Kansas Speedway in Kansas City, Kansas driving the No. 55 JEGS.com Toyota Camry prepared by Venturini Motorsports.  Earlier this month, he was the fastest car in an open test at the 1.5-mile oval.

The second event will be behind the wheel of his No. 1 JEGS.com Toyota Camry Super Late Model at Winchester Speedway on Sunday, October 12th for the ARCA/CRA Super Series powered by JEGS Winchester 400.  A few weeks ago, Coughlin picked up a big win at the half-mile, high-banked facility by winning the Winchester 100 on Labor Day.

“I am really looking forward to the next two events on my schedule,” Coughlin exclaimed.   “We had a great test at Kansas and the win at Winchester was awesome.  We have great momentum going into both events.”

The ARCA 98.9 at Kansas Speedway will be live on FOX Sports 2. 

Speed51.com will have live exclusive updates of the Winchester 400.
