The oldest son of three-time drag racing champion Mike Coughlin and his wife Kriss, Jack Coughlin now attends Clemson University in search of higher education in sports management, marketing and public relations.
A true sportsman in a variety of disciplines — baseball, basketball, football and golf — Jack also inherited the Coughlin family racing gene. As a youngster, he excelled in the Junior Dragster ranks, earning his first trophy in the class in 2012.
After a few year’s away from his own quarter-mile pursuits, Jack now has plans to license in a Super Comp dragster whenever his school schedule allows.
As always, he will remain a huge supporter of his father, who races in Top Dragster, and his younger brother Clay, who will be advancing out of the Junior Dragster ranks himself into Super Stock. Jack also cheers for his Uncle Jeg Coughlin Jr., and his cousins Troy Coughlin Jr. and Paige Coughlin, who also drag race.
