Coughlin Taking Aim on a Winchester Win
The winner of the Winchester 400 gets to take home a beautiful Winchester rifle as one of the coolest trophies in short track racing. Coughlin has yet to fire one of those Winchester rifles because he’s yet to win the Winchester 400. He’s come close, with his best finish being a fourth-place run one year ago. That run last year has him putting a Winchester 400 victory in his crosshairs.
Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness
In support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Cody Coughlin will have a pink-schemed JEGS No. 1 Toyota Camry this weekend at Winchester. The JEGS Foundation “Racing for Cancer Research” helps advance cancer research and build awareness. The Coughlin family features the JEGS Racing for Cancer Research ribbon on all race cars and uniforms to raise cancer awareness. The ribbon may be a simple symbol, but it displays a meaningful sentiment. The team will hand out gift bags to those who have been affected by NASCAR during the autograph session prior to the race.
The Fun of the High Banks
Winchester Speedway is famous for its 37 degrees of banking in the corners. They make the track fast, but also intimidating. However, the 19-year-old Coughlin doesn’t find Winchester intimidating. Instead, it’s one of his absolute favorite race tracks, and for good reason. In addition to his fourth-place run in the 400 last year, Coughlin finished in the top 10 in his only other Winchester 400 start. The 19 year-old also scored a win at Winchester in last year’s Labor Day event. Coughlin has finished in the top 10 in seven of his 10 Winchester starts between his Super and Pro Late Model starts.
Last Time Out
Coughlin’s last race came at Indianapolis’ Lucas Oil Raceway as part of ‘Fall Brawl’ weekend. Coughlin was fourth on the speed chart in both practice sessions, he time-trialed fourth, and finished fifth in the 100-lap race on September 27.
