JEGS Performance and XS Power holding the trophy at the end of the day yet
again! Congrats to Jeg Coughlin, Jr. and the entire JEGS crew for winning
their fifth Pro Stock title Sunday in the Auto Club NHRA Finals.
JEGS.com/Mopar Dodge driver Jeg Coughlin Jr.won his fifth Pro Stock title Sunday in the Auto Club NHRA Finals, joining John Force, Shawn Langdon and Matt Smith as season champions. Coughlin, a four-time event winner this season in his Dodge Avenger, took the title at historic Auto Club Raceway at Pomona when his only remaining challenger, Jason Line, lost in the second round of eliminations.
“In this day and age, it is so tough to win out here,” said Coughlin, from Columbus, Ohio. “We’ve seen a lot of races won and lost by just a few thousands of a second. I think this is one of the tightest, and one of the most intense championships I’ve ever won. This ranks right up there with 2007 when we had the two cuts to the Countdown to One in the first year of our playoffs.” Coughlin is the eighth driver in NHRA history to win five pro series championships. He also won a Super Gas title in the NHRA Lucas Oil Series in 1992.
