This is a little experiment of mine in HD. I was hoping to record three passes down the strip, but we only got two, then it got cloudy before the second one.... This is far from seamless. sigh... Anyway, I'm just screwing around with HD and editing. Let's see how it looks on YouTube...

Columbus Racing day at NTR May 2, 2008
Note: Since I posted this video, my best run is now firstname.lastname@example.org. No too
bad for a normally-aspirated daily-driver. :)
This is one of my better runs of the day. My best was a 12.04@116mph. I
SWEAR there is an 11 second run in that car the way it sits. Maybe I just
need a better nut behind the wheel. ;)

Coughlin Family at National Trail Raceway - 2009
COLUMBUS, Ohio (Sept. 23) For Team JEGS drivers John and Mike Coughlin and
their nephew Troy Jr., any opportunity to race at their home track,
National Trail Raceway, represents an opportunity for good times spent with
family and friends.
However, when the Coughlin clan descends on National Trail for this
weekends JEGS NHRA Northern SPORTSnationals, the mood figures to be a bit
more serious as both John and Mike are currently battling for championship
points in Top Dragster and Top Sportsman, respectively. John currently
leads Top Dragster with his JEGS.com rail, while Mike is ranked fifth in
Top Sportsman behind the wheel of his JEGS.com Chevy Cobalt. John also is
ranked in the top 10 of Super Stock in his own JEGS.com Chevy Cobalt.
"I have two Top Dragster races left where I can claim points so I like my
chances," John said of his chance at another championship. "Its not over
yet but if I can have a good weekend here at our home track, I can really
do myself a lot of good. If I have a good weekend in Super Stock I could
move up as high as fourth or fifth.
"I feel good about racing in Columbus because it's our home track and Im
very comfortable here. Im also driving well in both cars. We recently did
some testing with our Top Dragster to make it a little faster and more consistent and it's working
well. As for the Super Stock car, it's just plain nasty. It is very
Although his busy schedule has prevented him from running as many races as
some of his competitors, Mike has made the most of his opportunities in Top
Sportsman and now finds himself in a position to win the title he last held
in 2007. Mike has also had tremendous success at the JEGS NHRA
SPORTSnationals races, claiming three victories and two runner-up finishes
"This is a big weekend for all of us," Mike said. "We have a lot of work to
do but we still have a chance to win the championship. Obviously, its
getting late in the season and we need to make something happen sooner
rather than later but our team has had a lot of success here at National
Trail so this would be a perfect place to gain some ground.
"No matter what happens we really enjoy these JEGS SPORTSnational races.
For a Sportsman racer, it doesnt get any better than this."
Troy Jr., or T.J. as his friends and family know him, will be looking to
rebound after a semi-successful outing in his JEGS Super Comp dragster at
the recent Mac Tools U.S Nationals. In his first appearance at NHRAs
premiere event, T.J. successfully advanced to the third round of
eliminations, but thats where his weekend ended as his opponent, Chad
Lamont, put together a nearly perfect run with a .001 reaction time and an
8.906 elapsed time on the 8.900 Super Comp index. T.J. put together a very
competitive effort of his own with a .014 reaction time and an 8.914, but
it wasnt enough to get the win.
"When something like that happens, all you can do is load up, go home, and
try again another day," T.J. said. "I thought I did a good job but he did a
great job. Thats all part of Super Comp racing. I knew that it wasnt going
to be easy and its not but I do feel like I get a little better every time
I go to the track."
Adding some additional excitement to the proceedings will be some of the
third-generation Coughlin kids racing in the Junior Dragster category,
including John's 13-year-old son Cody, Mike's 8-year-old son Jack, and Troy
Coughlin Sr.'s 9-year-old daughter Paige.
