>>> John Coughlin will make his NHRA debut this weekend at the Division 2 NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series event at Orlando Speed World Dragway in Orlando, Fla. He will get into the competitive spirit early by racing (and testing) at this weekend’s points meet in Orlando. John will be racing his JEGS.com Super Stock C-Modified Chevrolet Cobalt for points and testing his JEGS Top Dragster in anticipation of its debut later this spring.

>>> Troy Coughlin will use the last off weekend before the season-opening Gatornationals to test his brand-new twin-turbo-powered JEGS.com Pontiac GTO. Troy plans on testing in Florida and Georgia before pulling into the gates at Gainesville Raceway.

>>> This year’s Detroit Autorama, which runs March 9-11 at the Cobo Center, will have a distinct drag racing flavor as three-time world champion Jeg Coughlin Jr. will be displaying both his 2002 JEGS Mail Order Pro Stocker and his JEGS.com Super Stock Chevrolet Cavalier. Fans are encouraged to get their picture taken next to the two gleaming hot rods, which are the actual cars Coughlin raced in competition. Additionally, two JEGS customer’s cars will be on display.

>>> Team JEGS chef Nicky Morse will be speaking to more than 4,000 students at the Detroit Autorama. The former cuisine instructor from Ohio State University once worked at the only four-star restaurant in Columbus, Ohio, and routinely prepares meals alongside superstar celebrity chefs like Wolfgang Puck at numerous charity events. Morse even traveled the states as the personal chef of Country Music Television’s “Showcase” program, which follows the daily lives of the industry’s biggest stars.
