Big Yellow, Big Efforts
For more than 50 years JEGS High Performance Parts, a worldwide mail order business based in Delaware, Ohio, has been promoting their drag racing and parts company with a bright yellow background. Big Yellow and Black as they are known in the NHRA drag racing world, has become an icon in drag racing. In recent years with the efforts of 17-year-old third generation Cody Coughlin and team, JEGS has moved on to the stock car world as a NASCAR contingency sponsor while selling parts for the circle-track world as well.In keeping with Big Yellow efforts, this report will showcase a yellow world through images for fans.
Troy's Pro Mod camp at work in Las Vegas. Jeg Coughlin Jr. recently posed during NHRA Mello Yello Pro Stock testing at Bradenton Motorsports Park. Plenty of JEGS's yellow.
The new top of a JEGS.com hauler. A Troy burnout at Gainesville Raceway. Jeg Coughlin Sr. has many reasons to smile.
Not all yellow race cars are JEGS racing cars.
Some boats and record-seeking cars are all yellow too. But no JEGS.com decals. (PRI Trade Show floor)
Plenty of yellow race cars from the past. (PRI Trade Show floor)

Jeg Jr. will pair up with Allen Johnson's team to share data and top personnel for the 2013 Mello Yello Season. Young Cody Coughlin will once again make mom proud with his Late Model Stock Car racing team efforts
Jeg Jr. and Allen Johnson ham it up in a mock contender fight. PR great, Scott Woodruff, cheers on big yellow during a win last year.
It's not all about work behind the scenes, but it's a very big part of racing.
Yellow occurs in nature as well. Nothing like a bright sunrise to start a good day.
It's a good bet that Big Yellow hopes for many bright racing days ahead and progressive, effective business days for all JEGS.com customers as well.
