Brendan Gaughan Finishes 14th at Atlanta Motor Speedway
Brendan Gaughan and the South Point Hotel & Casino team unloaded with a newly-prepared Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet for Saturday night’s race. The 39-year-old driver qualified 16th for the NASCAR Nationwide Series Great Clips 300 to Benefit Feed the Children at Atlanta Motor Speedway. Gaughan began reporting tight-handling conditions early in the 195-lap race. The Shane Wilson-led team took every opportunity to improve the handling and on lap 75 took four Goodyear tires, Sunoco fuel and adjusted air pressures. On lap 112, the Las Vegas-native reported he was fighting 50-50 with tight and loose conditions. The No. 62 South Point Hotel & Casino team finished the night in the 14th position. Brendan Gaughan remains eighth in the driver point standing as the Series heads to Richmond International Raceway.
Start – 16th Finish – 14th Laps Led – 0 Points – 8th
BRENDAN GAUGHAN QUOTE:
“This was not the night we had hoped for when we unloaded off the truck. I want to thank all of the guys on the No. 62 team, they never give up and did an amazing job on pit road all night. We will leave Atlanta and look forward to Richmond next weekend.”
