In anticipation of this weekend’s 55th annual Mac Tools U.S. Nationals presented by Lucas Oil in Indianapolis and the upcoming Countdown to 1 playoffs, which begin Sept. 18-20 at zMax Dragway in Concord, N.C., reigning Pro Stock champion Jeg Coughlin Jr. will test his Chevrolet Cobalt Tuesday in Charlotte.

A five-time world champion with 60 national event victories, the 39-year-old Coughlin already is one of the most successful drag racers in history. He’s hoping a strong test will propel his team to a third Indy win and secure the No. 1 ranking heading into the playoffs, worth an extra 20 points after the standings are reset prior to the Countdown to 1.

Coughlin drives for Victor Cagnazzi Racing, a Mooresville, N.C.-based race team.
