This is Coughlin’s fifth Pro Late Model start of the season. He is currently leading the JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour points by 70 over his crew chief, Jack Smith.  Coughlin also leads the ARCA/CRA Super Series standings and is trying to become the first driver to win both Champion Racing Association championships in the same season.

 

Saturday night’s race is a 125-lap race at Spitzer Motor Speedway, formerly known as Mansfield Motorsports Park, in Mansfield, Ohio. It is Coughlin’s first race at Spitzer Motor Speedway.

 

 

The Last Race

Cody Coughlin was victorious his last time out with the JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour.  He took the victory on the high-banks of Indiana’s Anderson Speedway. The victory padded Coughlin’s JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour points lead over his crew chief, Jack Smith.

 

The Streak

For the second time this season, Coughlin has the chance to win three straight races.  Earlier this year Coughlin won three straight ARCA/CRA Super Series races at Toledo Speedway, Anderson Speedway, and Baer Field Motorsports Park.  Currently, Coughlin has won two JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour races in a row at Salem Speedway and Anderson Speedway.

 

 

The Crew

Cody Coughlin’s Team JEGS crew will be led by first year crew chief Jack Smith.  Smith is joined by Kevin Hamlin (team manager), Scott Wimmer (spotter), and Dave Holt (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

Spitzer Motor Speedway originally opened in 1959. The track, formerly known as Mansfield Motorsports Park, used to host NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour races. The facility closed in 2010, but reopened in 2016 as Spitzer Motor Speedway.
