Brendan Gaughan Finishes 19th at Indianapolis Motor Speedway
Brendan Gaughan and the South Point Hotel & Casino Chevrolet Camaro started the NASCAR Nationwide Series Lilly Diabetes 250 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in the 17th position. With the threat of a mechanical issue early in the race, crew chief Shane Wilson took advantage of the first caution on lap 15 to bring the Las Vegas-native to pit road to evaluate the situation. The No. 62 Camaro restarted 31st and Gaughan battled to overcome the early issues throughout the day, working his way up to 14th on lap 46. He finished his day at the Brickyard in 19th-place. Gaughan and the No. 62 Richard Childress Racing team are currently eighth in the driver point standings as the series heads to Iowa Speedway next weekend.
Start – 17th Finish – 19th Laps Led – 0 Points – 8th
BRENDAN GAUGHAN QUOTE:
“It was a really disappointing day for the South Point Hotel & Casino team. Definitely not how we wanted to finish at the Brickyard. All we can do is learn and move on from this to Iowa next week.”
