Jeg Coughlin Dodge Challenger Stocker
Jeg Coughlin is one of just a handful of drivers to have won NHRA national events in five different classes, and will set his eye on an sixth such trophy when he unveils his new Dodge Challenger “package car” Stocker in Pomona. Coughlin also will continue to run his JEGS Cobalt in Pro Stock.
The car, in its early stages at Custom Motorsports Painting in Mansfield, Ohio is getting the traditional JEGS yellow and black and, should be ready for testing in Las Vegas in January.
I’ve never won a national event in Stock, and that’s definitely something I’d like to do in my career, I drove Steve Cohen’s Stocker in 2006, and I’ve raced my Chevy II station wagon a few times, but I haven’t raced on the bottom bulb much in the last couple of years. It should be quite a challenge, but I’m extremely excited about it.”
The five-time world champion, who has won NHRA event titles in Pro Stock, Comp, Super Stock, Super Gas, and Top Dragster, has long stated his desire to win in Stock,with the assistance of engine builder Jeff Taylor and fuel-injection specialist John Meany.
Coughlin’s car is one of more than two dozen Dodge Challengers expected to compete in Stock next season.
