2014 Watkins Glen: Brendan Gaughan NASCAR Nationwide Race Preview

This Week's South Point Hotel & Casino Chevrolet at Watkins Glen ... Brendan Gaughan will pilot chassis No. 143 in the Zippo 200 at Watkins Glen International.

Gaughan's Stats at The Glen ...The 39-year-old driver will make his fourth start this weekend at the 2.45-mile road course. His most recent start was in 2013 with his current team, Richard Childress Racing, qualifying 16th and finishing 14th. Gaughan also has one NASCAR Sprint Cup Series start in 2004.

South Point Introduces a New Partner, RealGaming.com ... Michael Gaughan and the South Point Hotel & Casino are proud to announce the arrival of the first mobile interactive gaming brand in Nevada, RealGaming.com. You can now play real money online poker on any personal device with a web browser. You will find great rewards, promotions and world-class service just like you have experienced at the South Point.

In the Rearview Mirror: Iowa ... Brendan Gaughan drove the No. 62 Chevrolet Camaro to an 11th-place finish in Saturday night's U.S. Cellular 250. After qualifying 16th, Gaughan reported a loose-handling condition car throughout the race and made contact with a competitor that sent him to pit road for repairs with five laps to go. The RCR team rebounded and finished 11th.

To the Points ...Gaughan is currently eighth in the driver point standings as the Nationwide Series heads to the second of three road course races this season, Watkins Glen International.

Meet Brendan Gaughan ... Gaughan is scheduled to appear at the RCR merchandise hauler in the Midway on Friday, August 8 beginning at 12 p.m. ET.

How do you think you and the RCR team will be returning to a road course?
"I believe all of the RCR teams are going to be very competitive. If you look at the entire package we all had at Road America, we were very strong. I am going to go into Watkins Glen and have a lot of confidence and feeling pretty sporty. Knowing that we were fastest in Road America with the dry conditions with the South Point Chevrolet helps us all have very positive attitudes heading into these next two weeks."

How is Watkins Glen International different than other road courses?
"Watkins Glen has so many fast corners. The bus stop, basically a corner built into chaos. You have to let the car roll as hard as humanly possible. It is a place on that course where you can't gain that much position, but you can lose a ton. Many other road courses are much more speedway fast, motor-wise, while the Glen is faster with corner speeds."
