Coughlin has raced to two wins and a runner-up result in the last three NHRA national events and is considered a leading contender for this year’s Full Throttle championship. The upcoming Countdown to the Championship, in which Coughlin is seeded third, is a six-race run of races that essentially decides the champion. Only the top 10 drivers from the first 17 races of the year are involved, and when the Countdown starts they are separated from 1-10 by 10 points each.
A native of the Columbus suburb of Delaware, Ohio, Coughlin has won two of the three championships contested under the Countdown format in 2007 and 2008. He also won titles in 2000 and 2002.
