DELAWARE, Ohio (Dec. 29) — It may be snowing in Delaware, Ohio, but the hometown of JEGS Mail Order and five-time world champion Jeg Coughlin Jr. still managed to send out road crews to change the city limit signs to reflect Coughlin’s latest title. Coughlin won his fourth Pro Stock championship since the turn of the millennium, scoring titles in 2000, 2002, 2007, and 2008, to go with his 1992 Super Gas crown.

“It’s really quite an honor for the city to do this for us,” Coughlin said. “It never fails to put a smile on my face whenever I drive by one of those signs because it allows you a moment to reflect on all the good times we’ve had racing our JEGS.com Chevrolet Cobalt.

“It’s really neat for our friends and family too because whenever someone comes for a visit they usually remark on those signs. I know our 350 employees at JEGS Mail Order, most of whom live right here in Delaware, are excited about those signs as well. We know we’re home when we’re in Delaware.”

This year’s championship marked the first time Coughlin has successfully defended his title and keeps him perfect in the NHRA’s playoff era, which began in 2007.

At just 38 years of age, Coughlin already ranks among the legends in the sport. Only seven others have scored more championships in NHRA’s 57-year history, and only two of those raced in the Pro Stock category.
