Six days ago, Jegs.com/Elite Performance Pro Stock driver Jeg Coughlin Jr. picked up his 80th career win, including his third win this season. Several days later, Coughlin is the provisional No. 1 qualifier at the 31st annual CapSpot NHRA Northwest Nationals at Pacific Raceways in Kent, Washington.

Coughlin Jr. picked up the provisional lead on his second qualifying session. He went 6.501 at 212.16 mph.

If his numbers are able to hold on, it’ll be his second No. 1 qualifier of the season. He’s also looking for his fourth win of the season.

“I think the whole team is real confident right now and that’s what we’re trying to build on,” Coughlin Jr. stated. “We will have to be on our best behavior to stay No. 1 tomorrow and to be the last ones standing on Sunday. We have to make great calls in the pits, drive great from behind the wheel and have the racing gods in our corner.”

Greg Anderson — who ended his winless streak on the mountain at Bandimere Speedway to begin the Western Swing — is the provisional No. 2 qualifier in his Summit Racing Equipment Chevy Camaro. He went 6.503 at 211.79 mph.

Elite Motorsports Chevrolet Camaro driver Erica Enders-Stevens is the provisional No. 3 qualifier, after she went 6.506 at 212.66 mph. Her once rival, Gray Motorsports 19-year-old Tanner Gray was the provisional No. 4 qualifier after he made a 6.510 at 212.09 mph pass in his Chevy Camaro.

Summit Racing Equipment’s Jason Line is the provisional No. 5 qualifier after he went 6.518 at 211.73 mph in his Chevy Camaro. Through 15 games, Line has not won a race this season, as he had three runner-ups in his previous final rounds, as he lost to Bo Butner, Chris McGaha, and Anderson in Denver.
