Yellow & Black Look for Toledo
At this weekend’s 7-Up 100, Cody Coughlin will have a different look on his car than what fans are used to seeing at the short tracks. The car will have the famous JEGS yellow on the top part of the car with black on the sides with the famous number-one in black with a yellow outline. The car design is very close to the design he had for the ARCA Racing Series event at Daytona International Speedway, where he started second and finished fourth.
