When five-time NHRA Pro Stock World Champion Jeg Coughlin, Jr., gives up drag racing and moves to Formula One, you'll know where his road racing career started -- at the Capitol Offense 24 Hours of Lemons, held this past weekend at Summit Point Motorsports Park in West Virginia.
Driving the "Buckeye Blitz" -- an '85 Honda Accord covered with 100 Ohio State University football helmet stickers -- Jeg and teammates Scott "Woody" Woodruff, Kenny Underwood, and Jay Roberts didn't have the finish they wanted. They were done in, twice, by a busted wheel bearing. But the team wasn't singing the blues. As Jeg said, they "learned a lot" and, just as importantly, "had a blast." (Official results weren't yet available at the time of this writing.)
