Chatting with Cody Coughlin…
“I’ve liked Texas (Motor Speedway) since the first time I raced there, because we always seem to run pretty well there. Now that they’ve repaved it, and reconfigured the track a bit, it definitely has a whole new set of challenges, but I still really enjoy that track.”
- This Week’s No. 13 JEGS Toyota Tundra… The No. 13 ThorSport Racing team will unload chassis No. 53 for Friday night’s JAG Metals 350 at Texas Motor Speedway (TMS). This is the same chassis Cody Coughlin piloted at Kansas Speedway (26th), Kentucky Speedway (15th), and Chicagoland Speedway (11th), earlier this season.
- Texas-Sized Stats… Coughlin has three NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) starts to his credit at the 1.5-mile TMS. The ThorSport Racing driver’s success includes a track-best start of 11th (2016-2, 2017-1), and a track-best finish of 12th (2016-1).
- Truck Series Stats… Coughlin has made 32 NCWTS starts since 2015, with a career-best start of seventh at Talladega Superspeedway (2016), and a career-best finish of sixth at Las Vegas Motor Speedway (2017).
- RIDE Presents… Coughlin, and fellow teammate, Grant Enfinger traded in their firesuits for cowboy hats when they visited Fort Worth, TX earlier this season to film, “RIDE Presents: From Stock Cars to Stockyards.” The duo went go-kart racing with the Mayor (Betsy Price), participated in a cattle drive in the Stockyards, had dinner at Horseshoe Hill, and had custom cowboy hats made at Best Hats. The duo also learned how to ride a (mechanical) bull, lasso a stationary bull, and perform the two-step, before attending the rodeo at the Stockyards.
