Brendan Gaughan, Richard Childress Racing Renew For 2015

Richard Childress Racing and South Point Hotel & Casino announced they have renewed their partnerships with Brendan Gaughan for the 2015 XFINITY Series season. The 2014 season marked Gaughan’s return to the Nationwide Series full-time after spending a year in the Truck Series. The partnership between RCR and South Point began in 2012 through a combined part-time effort in the Nationwide and Truck series.

“Returning to victory lane this season has been a big morale booster for not only me but for my team as well,” said Brendan Gaughan. “For the remainder of the year we will continue to learn and find things that work to get us a leg up on the competition for next season. I can’t wait for next year with the No. 62 RCR team and to contend for the XFINITY Series championship.”

Gaughan snagged his first career win at Road America in June and followed it up with another trip to Victory Lane at Kentucky Speedway in September.

“The South Point Hotel & Casino is pleased to return as primary sponsor of the Richard Childress Racing No. 62 Chevrolet Camaro in the 2015 NASCAR XFINITY Series season.” said Michael Gaughan, owner of the South Point Hotel & Casino. “Watching Brendan and the RCR team in victory lane this season has been a lot of fun for South Point and the Gaughan family. We are looking forward to more great accomplishments next season.”

In 114 career Nationwide starts, Gaughan has one pole, two wins, 11 top 5s and 28 top-10 finishes.
