INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – After one day of qualifying at the 52nd annual NHRA MAC Tools U.S. Nationals, Team JEGS driver John Coughlin is currently ranked eighth in the Super Stock class. Coughlin drove his Chevy Cavalier to a run of 8.84 seconds to claim a solid position in the 166-car field.

Coughlin’s brother, Jeg, made two runs behind the wheel of Michael Ogburn’s West Coast Hemis Barracuda, but is not yet qualified. He will have two additional attempts tomorrow to prepare for the highly anticipated Mopar Performance Super Stock Hemi Challenge, which is scheduled for Friday at 8 a.m.

Jeg Coughlin will also be racing in Competition Eliminator this weekend with a Chevy Cobalt owned by Richard Freeman. John Coughlin’s Team JEGS Super Comp dragster is also in action with defending Mac Tools U.S. Nationals champion Brad Plourd behind the wheel.
