PO6_3865

Cody Coughlin, driver of the No. 13 JEGS Toyota Tundra, made his second career start at Pocono (Pa.) Raceway in Saturday’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) Overton’s 150. Starting the 60-lap event from the 13th position, Coughlin finished 15th in Stage 1, and 19th in Stage 2, utilizing a late-Stage pit stop to gain track position for the third and final Stage. Restarting fifth in Stage 3, Coughlin maintained a position inside the top-10 over the ensuing 25 laps, and finished a career-best eighth behind race winner, Christopher Bell. 

Quote:

“It was a good day. We’ve been running inside the top-10 all year, we just haven’t finished there. It was nice to at least finish where we’ve been running, but I wanna be better. I think this is good momentum though, for sure.”
