POMONA, Calif. (Feb. 4) — Fans of four-time and reigning Pro Stock champion Jeg Coughlin Jr. and the JEGS brand will now be able to buy gear at all 24 races on the 2009 Full Throttle Drag Racing Series at a special JEGS licensed souvenir trailer owned and operated by MainGate, the official event merchandising company of NHRA.

“We are very pleased to further develop our relationship with JEGS,” said Dave Moroknek, President/CEO of MainGate. “They are a great organization, with a great history in NHRA Drag Racing and we are very like-minded in our approach to business. We look forward to maximizing sales of JEGS branded product and providing their fans the best customer service in the industry.”


Since its founding in 1963, MainGate’s primary activity has been the coordination of event merchandise sales and marketing for NHRA. MainGate has manufactured and sourced headwear, apparel, and novelties bearing the NHRA brand image for more than 40 years. Today, MainGate owns and operates the NitroMall store and several merchandise trailers. MainGate is now the official licensee of all JEGS Racewear and JEGS-branded items at the racetrack.

“Our fans have been asking where they can purchase Jeg Jr. T-shirts and other JEGS items trackside at national events and partnering with the group at MainGate was a natural choice,” said Scott Woodruff of JEGS. “MainGate is a first-class group that truly understands the importance of customer service. Look for the JEGS trailer the next time you’re at the races and pick up some really cool affordable items and memorabilia, stop by and sign up to get a FREE catalog sent to you.”
