– Aside from his three previous NCWTS starts at the 2-mile D-shaped track, Coughlin has two previous starts at Michigan International Speedway in the ARCA Racing Series, collecting two top-15 finishes.

– This week, Coughlin will be named an official NASCAR ambassador of DAV (Disabled American Veterans), a nonprofit charity dedicated to providing a lifetime of help to disabled American veterans and their families. Honored to be chosen to represent DAV, Coughlin’s No. 2 JEGS.com Chevy will carry the organization’s logo, as well as #BlessAVet, DAV’s current initiative. #BlessAVet is an initiative launched in partnership with DAV, Fandango, and the film “God Bless the Broken Road” where people can contribute to send a veteran to dinner and to go see “God Bless the Broken Road,” which releases Sept. 7th, a film in which Coughlin is a part of as well.

– After a weekend off on the NCWTS schedule, Coughlin remains 10th in the driver point standings.

Quote:

“There’s just so much grip with the trucks at every track we race at that it’s hard to tell if the surface at Michigan (International Speedway) has aged a whole lot since it’s repave. I don’t really know if this year we’ll be able to move around a whole lot more than in the past. I do know though that momentum is going to be big there, especially with the new engines we run. My guess is that we’ll run in the middle of the track up to the top groove. The draft is going to be big as well, especially for making moves. So if I get a big run, I’ll try to make a pass on the bottom lane, but only if the timing of the run is right. My main thing is to take advantage of those in front of me who may be bogged down in traffic and make those spots up as quickly as I can so I can keep my momentum rolling.

“Since Pocono (Raceway), the No. 2 team and I sat down to come up with a game plan for moving forward. We’ve had fast trucks all season but have just come up short of the finishes that we think we deserve. Both Jerry (Baxter, crew chief) and myself are really excited about how the meeting went and the JEGS.com team is optimistic about how the last half of the season will go.”

TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
