Brendan Gaughan Finishes 28th at Daytona International Speedway
Brendan Gaughan and the No. 62 South Point Hotel & Casino Chevrolet qualified 14th
for the NASCAR Nationwide Series Subway Firecracker 250 at Daytona International Speedway. From the beginning of the race, Gaughan tried to learn what lines his Chevrolet Camaro could run the best. The 38-year-old veteran moved to the high line on lap 20 and began moving through the field. On lap 37, green flag stops were underway and crew chief Shane Wilson called for Gaughan to stay out to lead laps. The Las Vegas-native was content with the handling of his Camaro and had no feedback when the caution fell on lap 53. The Richard Childress Racing team used pit strategy under caution coming in for right-side tires and fuel, and then again for left-side tires two laps later. Gaughan brought out the caution on lap 94 when he was caught up in a three-car accident relegating him to his 28th-place finish. The No. 62 RCR team remains seventh in the driver point standings as the Nationwide Series heads to New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
Start – 14th Finish -28th Laps Led – 3 Points – 7th
BRENDAN GAUGHAN QUOTE:
“This is definitely not the night we wanted for the No. 62 South Point Chevrolet. We unfortunately got caught up in a late-race accident, but all we can do is keep our heads high and move on to New Hampshire. There is still a lot of racing left in the season. “
