POMONA, Calif. (Nov 1) – Team JEGS driver John Coughlin has qualified No. 2 in Super Stock eliminator for this weekend’s Automobile Club of Southern California NHRA Finals at Pomona Raceway. Coughlin, who won the Pomona event in 1992, drove his Chevy Cobalt to a run of 8.691-seconds.

“My car was not perfect, but we did make two pretty solid runs today,” said Coughlin. “My crew has done a great job of preparing our JEGS Mail Order Cobalt and I feel very confident going into final eliminations. Hopefully, we’ll still be racing late Sunday afternoon.”

Coughlin is seeking to post a top ten points finish and can do so by winning three or more elimination rounds. He is set to face off with Jim Storms of Renton, Wash., when elimination rounds begin on Friday, Nov. 2.

Coughlin’s Team JEGS dragster is also in competition in Pomona, with reigning NHRA Super Comp champion Ron Erks behind the wheel. Erks made a pair of time trial runs on Thursday preparing for the start of final eliminations on Friday.
