Mike Coughlin took the win in Super Comp and John Coughlin posted a very productive weekend in Super Stock at the Chicagoland Dodge Dealers NHRA Division 3 Race. The weekend’s event was the third of six in NHRA North Central Division Competition.

Mike Coughlin scored his second victory of the season in Super Comp driving the Jeg’s Mail Order dragster. He defeated Jarod Bowman in the final. The win moved him up in both NHRA national and divisional points.

“This is the second race this year that my son Jack has come to and we have won both of them,” said Mike Coughlin. “I think Jack might be going to the races a little more.”

John Coughlin grabbed the No. 1 qualifying spot in his Jeg’s Mail Order Chevy Cavalier with a run of 8.824 seconds, -1.126 (under the index). He was eventually defeated with five cars remaining and had a very productive weekend on the track.

“We had a pretty strong weekend,” stated John Coughlin. “We need to continue to have strong showings like we did here and put ourselves in a position to win. We have some good momentum right now.”

North Central Division racers head to Edgewater Sports Park in Cleves, Ohio, for the next NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series event, August 5-7.
