JEGS CELEBRATES 50 YEARS IN VIDEO
Fifty years of JEGS history will come to life in captivating video vignettes throughout the mail order giant's 50th anniversary in 2010. Hosted by popular motorsports commentator Bill Stephens, the 2-3 minute pieces are filled with personal interviews and remembrances with family patriarch Jeg Coughlin Sr., his four sons -- John, Troy Sr., Mike, and Jeg Jr., who now own and operate JEGS Automotive -- and third-generation racer Troy Jr., who recently became the first of third-generation Coughlin to win an NHRA national event.
Classic NHRA video dating back to the beginning of the sport will remind viewers of the early days of straight-line racing, while stirring images from the 1980s, '90s, and '00s will show in detail how the Coughlin clan has put together one of the most successful racing teams and businesses in America.
