This Week’s South Point Hotel & Casino Chevrolet at Martinsville Speedway … Brendan Gaughan will pilot Chassis No.033 from the Richard Childress Racing NASCAR Camping World Truck Series stable in the Kroger 250. In seasons past, this Chevrolet was utilized by the No. 22 team and was most recently driven to a third-place finish during the October event at Martinsville Speedway.

Taking on the Paperclip … This weekend, Gaughan will make his 13th-career Camping World Truck Series appearance at the half-mile facility. Throughout the years, the Las Vegas native has collected four top-10 finishes, has a 25.5 average starting position, 14.3 average finishing position, completed 99.9 percent (2,704 of 2,706) laps contested and has been credited with seven laps led. Gaughan’s best start of fourth came in 2003, while he earned his best finish of sixth in 2006.

South Point Hotel & Casino … Opened in December of 2005, the South Point resort was the first megaresort located south of McCarran International Airport and the Las Vegas Strip. The facility consists of a 25 story hotel tower and 90,000 square feet convention center located on a 60 acre site along Las Vegas Boulevard in Enterprise, Nevada. South Point Hotel offers a total of 2,163 rooms and 160,000 sq. ft. meeting and convention space; the largest of any hotel in Las Vegas that is not on the Strip.

Enjoying Some Down Time … The Camping World Truck Series took a five week break since the season opener at Daytona International Speedway. Gaughan used his off time wisely logging laps during multiple test sessions, spending time with family and was scheduled to participate in the NASCAR Nationwide Series event at Las Vegas Motor Speedway until rain canceled qualifying, resulting in the No. 21 team missing the event.

 

Race Rewind: Daytona International Speedway … Gaughan and the No. 62 South Point Hotel & Casino Chevrolet team were relegated to a 29th-place finish following a mid-race, multi-truck accident during the Camping World Truck Series season opener at Daytona.

 

BRENDAN GAUGHAN QUOTE:

Explain your love/hate relationship with Martinsville Speedway.

“We’ve always raced well there (Martinsville Speedway), but qualifying just kills us and I have to get better at it. I love Martinsville, the staff and the people in the community are great, but I have tried every way possible to get a good lap in at that track and haven’t figured it out yet. I have decided that I am going to be one with Martinsville and make it part of my DNA this weekend. I am determined to get better at the track, and part of it is making up my mind that we are going to do well there.”
