“JEG’S Week” kicked off with a cloud of smoke and the squealing of tires Monday afternoon when, after Mayor Windell Wheeler’s official proclamation, Mike Coughlin did a burnout on South Sandusky Street in his bright yellow Chevy Colbalt race car.

With the Pontiac Performance NHRA Nationals just around the corner, “JEG’S Week” commemorates the sending off and support of the city’s local team.

“This is the fastest car I’ve driven yet,” said Coughlin, the third of the four racing brothers. “It can hit 191 or 192 (mph) in just over seven seconds.”
