Cody Coughlin – 2017 Dover Preview

Chatting with Cody Coughlin:

“I’ve never been to Dover, but I’ve heard it’s a fun place once you get the hang of it. It seems like a different track for sure, but I like to think I do well on the high-banked short tracks like a Winchester. Dover is definitely a faster one, so it’ll take a few laps to get used to it.” 2017 NASCAR - Portraits
