SANDUSKY, Ohio – Cody Coughlin will embark on his first full time NASCAR Camping World Truck Series schedule after joining ThorSport Racing.
The 21-year-old driver who captured the ARCA/CRA Super Series and JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour championships in 2016 will pilot the No. 13 JEGS/RIDE TV Toyota Tundra for ThorSport Racing.
“ThorSport Racing is a great team, one I’ve always admired at the race track,” said Coughlin. “Their professionalism, the speed they display, and their record, speaks for itself. Considering the team and I are both based in Ohio, it makes for a great fit, and I’m proud to be part of this championship-caliber organization.
“Matt Crafton and I became good friends last year,” Coughlin continued. “His insight and help with driving these Toyota Tundra’s at all of the different tracks has been a valuable asset, and to be his teammate this year, takes it to the next level.”
Coughlin will continue his partnership with JEGS Automotive Inc. in 2017. The Delaware, Ohio, based company will be one of two primary sponsors of the No. 13 Toyota Tundra. Additionally, Coughlin welcomes Ride Television Network Inc. (RIDE TV), a 24-hour, high-definition television network, dedicated to providing quality entertainment to equestrian and agriculture enthusiasts.
