Mike Coughlin grew up dreaming of drag racing glory and as a Division 3 racer he had numerous opportunities to race on the hallowed drag strip in Indy. But the national event only rolls around once a year and Coughlin knew he needed to be prepared to go for the gold when his chance arrives.
For Coughlin, 1999 was that magical moment, as he drove his rock-steady JEGS.com Chevrolet pick-up truck to the title of “the Big Go” in the Pro Stock Truck category. It was Coughlin’s second national event victory of the year and he certainly had to earn the trophy, driving past class leaders like Brad Jeter, Brian “Lump” Self, Craig Eaton, and Scott Perin to reach the winner’s circle.
“There simply is no better feeling in the world,” he said.
