Pre Race Release

The NHRA Mopar Mile High Nationals is the first event of the grueling “West Coast” swing. The NHRA POWERade Drag Racing Series will hit Denver, Seattle and Sonoma without a break between the challenging events.

45-time NHRA national event winner Jeg Coughlin, Jr has had a fair amount of success in the past at Bandimere Speedway. The youngest of the four Coughlin brothers’ has scored two wins (’98 & ’99), a runner-up finish last year (2003), a second round appearance and two-first round losses. The 34-year old has competed on the mountain six times in his short career.

“I am always excited to race at Bandimere Speedway,” said Coughlin. “The Bandimere family has always provided a great stage to compete on and it has always been a fun place to go and race. Last year we scored a runner-up finish at this event. We would like nothing more then to take it one step further this year and put one in the win column.”

Coughlin and his Jeg’s Mail Order Chevy Cavalier will enter the 13th race of the 23-event series in the No. 6 position in the NHRA POWERade Pro Stock championship. The two-time Pro Stock champion is 75 points from taking over the No. 5 spot.

Coughlin knows the importance of putting together a string of strong performances during the “West Coast” swing.

“Doing well at the next three races can be rewarding for a team,” explained Coughlin. “Last year during this three-race stretch we posted a runner-up, a second round loss and a win. The key to our success will be to take advantage of the misfortune(s) other teams have and avoid making errors that we can control. You need to have some depth since all three climates are different and present unique challenges.”
