KALAMAZOO, MI – Cody Coughlin fought hard in Wednesday night’s Kalamazoo Klash 125 for the ARCA/CRA Super Series at Kalamazoo Speedway. He battled in traffic throughout the race and came home sixth in his inaugural start at the fast and challenging 3/8-mile Michigan oval.
Coughlin qualified seventh and started third after an invert of nine. He ran in the top five for much of the race, and was at one point as high as second.
However, with under 50 laps to go, Coughlin was hit from behind and moved out of the racing groove. The 20-year-old Joe Gibbs Racing Development driver went for a slide, but kept his JEGS.com Toyota Camry from going for a spin. When Coughlin regrouped, he found himself in sixth.
