>>> Pro Stock driver Jeg Coughlin Jr. enters the 38th annual ProCare Rx NHRA SuperNationals presented by R2B2 Motors as the tour’s most recent winner. Coughlin won the title of the 10th annual Torco Race Fuels Route 66 NHRA Nationals in Chicago with a final-round holeshot win over defending series champion Jason Line. It was Coughlin’s 35th Pro Stock win and his 48th national event win.

The victory lifted Coughlin into a season-high second place in the POWERade points. He trails leader Greg Anderson by 179 points, or about nine rounds of action. Coughlin’s teammate at Victor Cagnazzi Racing, Dave Connolly, is third overall, 50 points back.

>>> Jeg Coughlin Jr. is a four-time winner at Old Bridge Township Raceway Park, having won the Super Gas title here in 1997, a win that helped him become the first driver in NHRA history to win in four categories in one season (Pro Stock, Super Stock, Competition Eliminator and Super Gas). He also has three Pro Stock wins here, including the national events in 1998 and 2000, as well as the Holley Dominator Duel in 1999.

>>> Team owner Victor Cagnazzi lives in Mooresville, N.C. these days but he’s a New Yorker at heart, born and raised in the Big Apple. Together with his three brothers, Cagnazzi built Integrated Systems — a computer infrastructure and software design company — into a successful operation that recorded sales in excess of $70 million in sales before selling his stake so he could dedicate himself to racing full-time. Cagnazzi was named New York City’s Entrepreneur of the Year in 1997.

>>> Jeg Coughlin Jr. will celebrate his 37th birthday Saturday, June 23rd. “It’s not very often you can give yourself a birthday gift as good as a Wally but that’s what we’re going to try and do,” the 48-time national event winner said. “That would certainly make for a special birthday.”

>>> Team JEGS chef Nicky Morse has prepared meals for royalty, distinguished diplomats, and Ohio’s ultra wealthy at the only four-star restaurant in Columbus, Ohio. He’s cooked for country music’s brightest stars as part of the support crew for CMT’s “Showcase” program. He’s mentored young apprentices at Ohio State University, and worked elbow-to-elbow with Wolfgang Puck to raise money for cancer research.

Each race this season, the most decorated chef in motorsports opens his personal cookbook to race fans and members of the media by featuring one of his own creations. Complete with step-by-step instructions, Morse divulges a complete recipe on TeamJegs.com and NHRA.com that allows budding cooks a chance to create a masterpiece of their own at home.

For Englishtown, Morse unveils his famous Guacamole Dip. “This is a very simple recipe with lots of flavor,” Morse said. “If you ever have to go to a party and need something tasty to take, this can be made in a matter of a few minutes.”
