The oldest son of three-time drag racing champion Mike Coughlin and his wife Kriss, Jack Coughlin attends The Ohio State 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 drag racing gene from his hall-of-fame grandfather Jeg Coughlin Sr.
As a youngster, Jack excelled in the Junior Dragster ranks, earning his first trophy in the class in 2012. Now he’s turning his attention to the Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series where he’ll race a JEGS.com Super Comp dragster as a teammate to his father, who has switched back to Super Comp, and his younger brother Clay, who will race in Super Stock,
Jack will race as his school schedule allows, with a heavy concentration of events that take place during his summer break. He also plans to soak in as much knowledge as possible from his father, his brother, and his cousins Troy Coughlin Jr., Paige Coughlin, and Makenna Brown, who also drag race, Troy Jr. in Pro Stock and Paige and Makenna in Super Comp.
