GLENDORA, CA – The NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series, where the future stars of the sport earn their racing stripes, returns to action after a hiatus stemming from the COVID-19 global pandemic. Drivers are eager to return to competition at premier racing facilities across the country.
The action-packed series will tentatively resume May 15-17 with events in Division 2 at Atlanta Dragway and Division 4 at Alamo City Motorplex.
A highly anticipated event this season, National Trail Raceway will feature double the sportsman racing action as it hosts a Division 3 points meet July 16-17 directly followed by the iconic JEGS NHRA SPORTSnationals, July 18-19.
DELAWARE, OH – Six-time drag racing world champion Jeg Coughlin Jr. will always pick the familiar confines of
his JEGS.com Elite Motorsports Chevrolet Camaro as his preferred mode of go-fast transportation. But for three years, from 2008-2010, Coughlin enjoyed the unique experience of hitting breakneck speeds driving an Olympic bobsled as part of the Geoff Bodine Bobsled Challenge.
“As I think back on those three events, that was actually pretty crazy,” said Coughlin, who will pullback from full-time racing at the end of the year. “At the time, the competitor in you comes out and the way they set it up was NASCAR versus NHRA so we just kind of dove into the fight. It probably was a bit insane but it was also a lot of fun.
“You’re in these things with no roll cage, no safety belts and no brakes really, except for one the brakeman uses after the run is over. It’s all about gravity and once they release you in that tube, you’re fully committed. The sled and its occupants are going to the bottom of the mountain. How you get there is up to you. If you crash and turn it over, you’re still going all the way down, just on your head, and that happened.”
