Coughlin Goes From Back to Front Twice at Anderson

May 14th, 2017

ANDERSON, IN – The words “give up” are certainly not in Cody Coughlin’s vocabulary. Coughlin came from the back of the field to the front of the field twice at Indiana’s Anderson Speedway. A late-race crash took Coughlin out of contention out of the race after an unreal performance and relegated him to a 10th-place finish in the Koorsen Fire & Security 125 for the ARCA / CRA Super Series.

Coughlin qualified second overall in time trials and was slated to start sixth after the invert before he and his Team JEGS crew decided to pull the car out of the impound line to make last-minute adjustments. That meant that the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series driver for ThorSport Racing would have to start at the back of the field.

The 21-year-old driver carefully and methodically worked his way from the 14th starting position to the front of the field. By lap 80 Coughlin was in third and knocking on the door of the top two.

“We had a good car today, but just didn’t have the forward drive that we really needed,” said Coughlin, a Joe Gibbs Racing Development Driver. “That’s why we pulled it out of impound. We wanted to make some adjustments to really dial it in, because we knew we’d be able to come from the back to the front.”

The Delaware, Ohio native entered Sunday’s race as the defending winner of this event, and it was looking like he was going to replicate last year’s efforts as he began applying pressure to the car in front of him for the second position. Unfortunately, both drivers were involved in an incident and Coughlin had to restart in the rear of the field once again.

Coughlin was quickly working his way back through the field when he and another driver got together and crashed hard at the exit of turn two.

“That wasn’t what we wanted to have happen, but that’s racing on a small bullring,” said Coughlin. “I’m okay and I hope he is okay too. We’ll move on and get them next time. I just have to thank Kevin (Hamlin, crew chief) for all of his hard work getting the car ready, as well as Terry (Cook, spotter), Dave (Holt, crew member) and Jon (Szitti, crew member). I really appreciate everything they did this weekend. Lastly, I have to thank God for keeping me safe out there.”

Coughlin will be back in action on Friday, May 12th at Kansas Speedway as he climbs back behind the wheel of his No. 13 JEGS.com/RIDE TV Toyota Tundra for ThorSport Racing in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.

Three Time: Coughlin Eyeing a Third Win on High Banks of Anderson

May 6th, 2017

COLUMBUS, OHIO – While the NASCAR Camping World Trucks Series hiatus continues for a few more weeks, Cody Coughlin is keeping himself busy. Coughlin returns to the wheel of his Super Late Model on Saturday night at the legendary high-banked quarter-mile of Anderson Speedway in Anderson, Indiana.

The 21-year-old driver is the defending winner of this race, which has him anxious to get back to Anderson. Coughlin actually scored two victories at Anderson last year; once in a Super Late Model in May, and again in July in his Pro Late Model.

“Defending that win is the goal, of course,” said Coughlin. “It should be a fun time. I love racing at Anderson Speedway, and it’s even more fun to win there.”

The Delaware, Ohio native typically excels at high speed tracks, like Winchester Speedway and Salem Speedway, but Anderson Speedway is far from a high speed track at just one-quarter mile in length. Even still, Coughlin clearly excels at Anderson with two wins at the track.

“It’s a very technical track,” said Coughlin. “It’s a driver’s race track. You have to be consistent there. You have to hit your marks every corner of every lap. That’s why I like this place so much.”

Another reason why Coughlin likes Anderson Speedway so much is because he knows he’ll have a car capable of winning every time he rolls onto the track in turn three.

“My guys work so hard for me. I appreciate them so much. I know that they will give me a great race car, and hopefully all of us will be celebrating in victory lane just like last year.”

Coughlin’s day kicks off at 4 p.m. for practice on Saturday, May 6th. Qualifying for the ARCA/CRA Super Series will begin at approximately 6:30 p.m. ET with racing set to follow at 8 p.m. ET.

Coughlin will resume his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series schedule on Friday, May 12 at Kansas Speedway.

New Track For ARCA/CRA Super Series Rookie Jordan Pruitt As Anderson Speedway Awaits

April 22nd, 2015

Gaylord, Michigan –After two impressive starts in the ARCA/CRA Super Series Powered by JEGS spanning between the end of the 2014 racing season and the beginning of the 2015 campaign, Jordan Pruitt felt he was ready for the 2015 season opener for the premier tour within Champion Racing Association. The 7-UP 100 Presented by Royal Truck & Trailer Sales proved to be a learning experience for the Rookie of the Year title contender, but to be fair, he didn’t have his ‘ace in the hole’ with him for the first points race of the new season.

Crew Chief, Scott Hantz, a three-time ARCA/CRA Super Series Champion, was busy competing in the companion ARCA Gold Cup Outlaw Super Late Model Series portion of the weekend at Toledo Speedway (OH) and wasn’t as available for Pruitt for this event. A 14th place finish was what Pruitt generated after qualifying an impressive ninth out of 26 cars on hand. “We really struggled at Toledo finding our grip on the track. I thought we had a good car after qualifying ninth. But the car was just terrible on long runs and we fell back to 14th,” Explained the Gaylord, Michigan driver.

“Looking at the positive side of things we did not wreck the car or have any major damage to be fixed. My crew did a great job all weekend and stayed positive trying to get faster.” Pruitt continued. “Plus my spotter, Lenny Lightner, did an awesome job getting me through the race with no issues.” He added.

The next race on the 2015 ARCA/CRA Super Series schedule is at a track Pruitt has never seen before: The fast 1/4 (0.250) mile high-banked paved oval of Anderson Speedway (IN) as the Madison County Community Health Center 125 will be the 27-year-old’s first time ever racing on the historic Central Indiana facility. “We will have our crew chief back Scott Hantz. He has three wins there and that will be a huge help to us. I am hoping for another good finish preferably inside the top five even though I’ve never been to there, so I will be busy trying to learn the track.” He ended.

For the rest of the 2015 racing season, both of Pruitt’s black #8′s, one an ARCA/CRA Super Series Super Late Model and the other an ICAR Top Speed Modified Tour ride, which he will race on Sunday, May 3rd at Springport Motor Speedway (MI), will sport sponsorship decals and support from Gaylord Machine & Fabrication as well as Electric Sun, W.L. Snow Enterprises, Top Speed Fabrication and M.P.H. Promotions.

Matt Hall Ready To Take On Anderson Speedway After Overcoming Adversity In ARCA/CRA Season Opener

April 22nd, 2015

Newport, Michigan- Matt Hall’s 2015 racing season did not begin as planned during the ARCA/CRA Super Series Powered by JEGS season opener, the 7-UP 100 Presented by Royal Truck & Trailer Sales. The weekend at the famed 1/2 (0.500) mile high-banked paved oval of Toledo Speedway (OH) started with a blown motor in Practice the day before the
race. After a long night of swapping out engines and on very little sleep, all the hard work and perseverance paid off for the Newport , Michigan driver with a 13th place effort.

“I can’t thank my team enough for the hours and effort that was put in at Toledo. After blowing up the motor late Friday the team could have easily called it a weekend. We all knew we had a lot of family and friends counting on us to be running on Saturday at one of our home tracks.” Explained the 22-year-old driver remarked. “With multiple crew guys including myself getting less than four hours of sleep in a 48-hour span was absolutely incredible. To have a team that is working with us out of pure love of the sport and not on a payroll is a pretty awesome feeling being able to drive for a team with this much dedication.”

After qualifying 13th out of 26 cars on the grounds, Hall pulled his #04 Schall Automotive / Chevrolet out of impound to take care of a leak and a couple other present issues and would be forced to start at the rear of the field. “Figures, when we need a caution to make up track position, the race goes green flag all the way for the first time ever.” Hall Laughed after the first caution free race in the ARCA/CRA Super Series 19-year history. “We are determined to log laps and stay out of trouble this year and let the finishes come to us.” He added.

The 2015 racing season continues for Hall and his Matt Hall Motorsports Team on Saturday, April 25th at the fast 1/4 (0.250) mile high-banked paved oval of Anderson Speedway (IN). The Madison County Community Health Center 125 is the second points race of the year for the ARCA/CRA Super Series is at one of the few tracks Hall has been to before as he contends with five other drivers for the 2015 Rookie of the Year title. “I am looking forward to Anderson. Always been one of my favorite tracks. The crew really showed what they are made of with the adversity we overcame at Toledo and I couldn’t be happier with the guys. Onward and upward we go.” Stated Car Owner and Father, Kenny Hall.

“This weekend at Anderson is going be another tough one. We haven’t raced there in a couple years, but I am very confident we can leave there with a good finish and get some of those points back we left on the table at Toledo.” Added Crew Chief, Brian Moore.

For the rest of the 2015 racing season, Hall’s #04 Matt Hall Motorsports / Kyle Jones Racing / Chevrolet SS will carry sponsorship decals and support from Schall Automotive as well as LMC Electric, Matrix Paint Systems, Embroidered Images, Wicked Motorsports, Rook Motorsports, Port City Racecars and M.P.H. Promotions.
