Brendan Gaughan Finishes 12th in Get to Know Newton 250 at Iowa Speedway
Brendan Gaughan and the No. 62 Richard Childress Racing team started from the 10th position in the Get to Know Newton 250 presented by Sherwin Williams at Iowa Speedway on Sunday afternoon. The South Point Hotel & Casino team battled a free-handling race car throughout the 250-lap event. During the first caution, the team was penalized for pitting before the pits opened resulting in Gaughan restarting at the end of the longest line. The Las Vegas-native restarted 22nd and began working his way back through the field. By lap 112, he had advanced to the 12th position where he would finish the race. The No. 62 South Point Hotel & Casino Chevrolet team is seventh in driver point standings heading into the Charlotte race weekend.
Start – 10th Finish – 12th Laps Led – 0 Points -7th
BRENDAN GAUGHAN QUOTE:
“I feel terrible about the pit road penalty at the beginning of the race. We did our best to stay focused and make up as much ground as we could. The No. 62 team was phenomenal all day, the pit stops were great. We are all ready to go racing at Charlotte next weekend.”
