In the final round, John had a nearly perfect reaction time and then matched his dial-in time of 6.85 seconds to claim his first win of the season.
“My car ran great all day and it was especially good in the final round,” said John. “I needed to be good because Jeff was really good as well. Obviously, we’d love nothing more than to have a JEGS car racing in the JEGS Allstars next year. That’s still a long way off and this class is so competitive, I’m just happy to get a victory.”
Mike raced his JEGS.com Chevy Cobalt for just the second time this year, but has reached the semifinals at both events. In
“We had a small mechanical issue and unfortunately, it prevented me from making the round,” said Mike. “It’s a real shame because I felt like I was driving well and my car was running strong. I have to agree with John that we’d both like to be racing in the JEGS Allstars race next year. Hopefully, this was the first step towards that goal.”
Troy Coughlin Jr. also had a very rewarding weekend as he drove his Super Comp dragster to a round three finish. Competing against more than 100 other racers, the second-year driver continues to lean the ropes in one of NHRA’s most competitive classes.
“This is my third race of the season and I can tell that I’m getting a little bit better every time out,” said
