After establishing themselves as formidable racecar drivers in NHRA’s cutthroat Pro Stock class, brothers Troy and Jeg Coughlin made history in 1999 when they squared off in the category’s first brother-versus-brother final round. With family bragging rights and a shiny Wally trophy on the line at the season-opening Winternationals at Pomona Raceway, little brother Jeg managed to nip his elder sibling at the finish line to take home the hardware.

At the season’s midpoint, Troy got a chance to even the score when once again the two JEGS.com racers battled through to the final round of the Mile-High NHRA Nationals in Denver. But in another classic side-by-side race, Jeg bagged his second win over his brother to move to 2-0 in the history books.

Almost a year later, with the sport’s biggest single-race payout of $50,000 on the line in the money round of the invitation-only Holley Dominator Duel, Jeg knocked off Troy for a third time after a thrilling race down Old Bridge Township Raceway Park in Englishtown, N.J. Jeg went on to win his first Pro Stock championship that year, while Troy was forced to wait for another chance at his talented younger brother.
