Mooresville, NC – A new season is a fresh start, especially when you are a rookie in one of the top leagues in NASCAR, with one of the top teams in the sport. Add to that fact that Daytona Int’l Speedway (FL) will be the first start and it could be considered an adrenaline rush.
Today, Kyle Busch Motorsports is proud to announce that Cody Coughlin will pilot the no. 18 JEGS.com Toyota Tundra in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season opening event at the World Center of Racing. The NextEra 250 is scheduled for Friday, February 19.
The 20-year-old Coughlin will race an additional 10 races for KBM in 2016 behind the wheel of a KBM Toyota Tundra as a teammate to Daniel Suarez.
“I’m happy with everything that is happening, but to be able to race at Daytona again is really cool,” said Coughlin, a development driver for Joe Gibbs Racing. “If there’s one race that I had to pick, that would probably be it because I think it’s the most prestigious race of the year. We’re super stoked about it and I know we will be strong with KBM behind me.”
