Chevy Pro Stock standard bearer Jeg Coughlin Jr. did his best to bring the Chevy faithful another World Championship in 2009. He did his best by winning more NHRA races than any other Pro Stock racer.  But under the arcane NHRA points system, racers don’t get rewarded for their season long effort efforts; instead racers are rewarded for their performances over the last six races of the 24-race season (23 events in 2010).

Five-time NHRA World Champion Jeg Coughlin Jr. added seven Pro Stock victories to his total in 2009, becoming one of just 10 drivers in the 58-year history of the sport to compile 60 or more wins, but that wasn’t enough to bring him and the Chevy faithful another Pro Stock World Championship.

After driving his JEGS.com Cobalt to victories in Phoenix, Las Vegas, St. Louis, Chicago, Englishtown, Reading, and Indianapolis, Coughlin has 61 wins, tying him with Top Fuel driver Tony Schumacher for ninth place on NHRA's all-time race winner list.
