Jeg Coughlin Wins NHRA Pro Stock at Brainerd

Jeg Coughlin Jr.

  On August 15th, 2010, Jeg Coughlin reached his third straight final, his sixth this season, and the 103rd of his combined Full Throttle and Lucas Oil career by powering the Weld Racing wheel equipped yellow and black Cobalt to a steady trio of passes – 6.612, 6.617, and 6.609, all better than the incoming 6.630 track record – to defeat Ron Krisher and last year’s finalists, Jason Line and defending event champ Greg Anderson. “This is as close as we’ve been to the points leader all year. That’s the way the playoff and the Countdown to 1 works. We’ve had that work to our advantage for a couple of years and had that work against us last year. This year, we were probably no way, shape, or form going to contend for our sixth world title, but we are.”
