• The Coughlin family has won Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series events in nine different classes: Top Fuel, Pro Comp, Super Eliminator, Comp, Super Stock, Super Comp, Super Gas, Top Dragster, and Top Sportsman.

• The Coughlins have won Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series events at 17 different tracks across North America, including races in six of NHRA's seven geographic divisions. They have not won in Division 6, the Pacific Northwest.

• The Coughlin family has claimed three Lucas Oil Series divisional wins at National Trail Raceway. Mike won the Top Sportsman title in 2007, John won in Super Stock in 2002, and family patriarch Jeg Sr. won the Pro Comp title in 1976. Troy Jr. was also the runner-up in Super Comp at the 2013 National Trail event.

• Meghan is the oldest daughter of 2012 NHRA Pro Mod Series champion Troy Coughlin and the older sister of Troy Jr. She will be driving a JEGS Mail Order Chevy II wagon that was built by her uncle, six-time NHRA world champion Jeg Coughlin Jr.

Troy Coughlin Jr.

• Jeg Sr., Jeg Jr., and John have each won four North Central Division season championships, Mike has two, and Troy Jr. has one for a total of 15.

• Family patriarch Jeg Sr. won his first Lucas Oil Series event when he claimed the Super Eliminator title at Windsor Dragway in Windsor, Ont., in 1969.

• Mike has won four national event titles at National Trail Raceway. He won Super Comp in 2002 and 2003 and recorded back-to-back wins in Top Sportsman in 2006 and 2007.

• All told, Mike has won 13 NHRA national event titles combined in Pro Stock Truck, Super Comp, and Top Sportsman. His most recent win came two weeks ago when he drove his JEGS.com Camaro to the Top Sportsman title in Norwalk, Ohio.

• Collectively, the Coughlin family has won 55 NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series divisional events.

• In addition to their national and divisional event wins, the Coughlins have won three specialty events at National Trail Raceway. Jeg Jr. won the JEGS (then TRW) Allstars race in 1991 and 1997, and John claimed a victory in the Top Dragster Shootout held during the 2007 JEGS Northern SPORTSnationals.

Meghan Coughlin

• At the 2003 Columbus national event, the Coughlin family enjoyed one of their best events as they claimed a pair of victories: John won in Super Stock and Mike claimed the Super Comp title. The 1996 race was also memorable because Jeg Jr. scored a win in Super Stock and a runner-up finish in Super Gas.

• All told, the Coughlin brothers -- Troy, John, Mike, and Jeg Jr. -- have combined to win 11 national events at National Trail Raceway, the team's longtime home track. They have also tallied six runner-up finishes there.
