The JEGS race team made a major move in 2001 when it brought its engine program in-house at JEGS Mail Order headquarters in Delaware, Ohio. Staffed with some of the brightest minds in the business and filled with the latest and greatest equipment, the new facility placed the team’s racing fate in its own hands.
It didn’t take long for the considerable investment to pay dividends as Jeg Coughlin Jr. rode the new horsepower the shop was producing to the 2002 POWERade Championship, his second title in the competitive Pro Stock class. A stretch run streak of eight victories in the final 12 races did the trick, and proved that a company known for delivering high performance parts to its customers knew its business through first-hand experience.
