2014 NHRA: Team JEGS Sportsman Racers Ready To Begin Season At SPORTSnationals

Three of Team JEGS brightest Sportsman stars -- Mike, Troy Jr., and Clay Coughlin -- are ready to make their 2014 season debuts this weekend at the 11th annual JEGS NHRA Cajun SPORTSnationals at No Problem Raceway Park in Belle Rose, La.

The three champions will begin racing Thursday during a test-and-tune outing to get their race cars dialed in properly for the first of three JEGS SPORTSnationals, the most high-profile events of the year for Sportsman racers.

Mike, a multi-time champion in the Top Sportsman class, has his Camaro prepped for action, and his nephew Troy Jr. is set to battle in both Super Gas and Super Comp, where he has achieved great success, including earning divisional titles and scoring national event victories.

Clay, a newly minted Jr. Dragster champion at National Trail Raceway, will be shaking out his half-scale rail and making a handful of exhibition runs.

"Belle Rose is one of my all-time favorite races," Mike said. "It's always a laid-back deal and a nice change of pace from hard-core competition. The action is intense but the atmosphere is so fun that the emphasis is on family and friendships. It's great to be starting the year down there and to have T.J. and Clay with me."

Like his uncle, Troy Jr. knows a generous dose of Southern hospitality will be the order of the day in Louisiana.

"I'm looking forward to three things: warm weather, great food, and to get back in my race cars to turn on some win lights," T.J. said. "It's been a long winter and I feel like we're all anxious to get to racing again. It's time, and having a race with our family's company name on it makes it even more special."

Qualifying for the JEGS NHRA Cajun SPORTSnationals will be held at 9 a.m. Friday and Saturday and eliminations on Sunday morning.
