Cody Coughlin

ARCA/CRA Super Series

Spring 200

No. 1 JEGS.com Toyota Camry

 

The Race

This is Coughlin’s first Super Late Model start of the season, and first since winning the ARCA/CRA Super Series and JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour championshipsThe Ohio native was the first driver in history to capture both championships in a single season.

 

The high-banked Toledo Speedway fits right in line with Coughlin’s driving style.  The half-mile oval is fast and it’s banked, and the Joe Gibbs Racing Development Driver loves both of those aspects.  In fact, 21 year-old is the defending winner of this event. He dominated the 100-lap race last spring en route to his first career ARCA/CRA Super Series championship.

 

The Last Race

Cody Coughlin had a career-best finish in his sights at Martinsville Speedway in the Alpha Energy Solutions 200 for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series before another driver took him out in the final corner.  Coughlin drives the No. 13 JEGS.com / RIDE TV Toyota Tundra in the NCWTS.

 

The Crew

Cody Coughlin’s Team JEGS crew will be led by second-year crew chief Jack Smith, who will be calling the shots for Coughlin. Smith is joined by Kevin Hamlin (team manager), Terry Cook (spotter), Dave Holt (crew member) and John Szitti (crew member).

 

 

The Family

Cody is a third-generation race car driver.  His family, including his father, John, has been successful in NHRA drag racing for decades.  Cody, unlike his family predecessors, chose the path of circle-track racing rather than follow on the straight-line path set forth by the rest of his family.  Cody’s mother, Di, and sister, Kennedi, attend Cody’s races in support of their favorite driver.

 

The Race Track

Toledo Speedway is a half-mile oval with 12-13 degrees of banking in the corners.  The track was paved in 1964 and used to hold what was considered to be the “Fastest Short Track Show in the World” when winged Sprint Cars and winged Supermodifieds would take to the track.
