Paige Coughlin has created her mark in the NHRA sportsman world after four years in the super comp class. As a member of the decorated Coughlin family, this third generation driver is one of three daughters of Troy Coughlin Sr, three-time Pro Modified world champion.
During her career in sportsman racing, Paige Coughlin placed second in the super comp class in 2019 while racing in the Midwest division. In 2020, she represented the Midwest division at the infamous JEGS Allstars race during the U.S. Nationals in Indianapolis. She also participated in other NHRA national events, Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series events, and bracket races across the country.
At the beginning of the 2021 racing season, the young driver decided to take her racing career in a different direction. Wanting to follow in her father’s footsteps, Paige had a passion for door cars. Street Outlaws: No Prep Kings racing immediately caught the driver’s attention after attending races with her father and learning about the racing dynamics.
With the help of Troy Coughlin Sr, Justin Beaver, and Mike Rees, the 1992 procharged camaro would kickstart Paige’s aspirations for a different racing career. Her goal is to start out in the Future class and potentially get invited to race her way into the main event.
Outside of racing, the 21-year-old is a senior at Miami University of Ohio and plans to graduate in the spring of 2022. She is double majoring in Strategic Communication and Professional Writing. Paige has also been a member of the Miami University Equestrian Team pursuing her other love of horsepower.
