2014 Mid-Ohio: Brendan Gaughan NASCAR Nationwide Race Preview

This Week's Allie Norman/South Point Chevrolet at Mid-Ohio ... Brendan Gaughan will pilot chassis No. 143 in the NASCAR Nationwide Series Nationwide Children's Hospital 200 at Mid-Ohio. This Richard Childress-prepared chassis has been used at both road courses this season with the No. 62 RCR team. Most recently at Watkins Glen last weekend, Gaughan finished 28th. Chassis No. 143 was also used in June at Road America, where Gaughan ended his 10-year winless streak and returned to victory lane.

Gaughan's Stats at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course ... Gaughan is no stranger to road courses, but will turn his first Nationwide Series laps at the 2.258-mile road course on Friday during the first session of practice for the Series.

Meet Nationwide No. 62 RCR Champion Patient Allie Norman ... Dresden, OH-native, Allie Norman was nine years old when she was diagnosed with leukemia on April 4, 2013. While the news was devastating to her family, Allie never let it get the best of her. Allie is famous for her love of monkeys and has educated everyone who works on the cancer floor with everything there is to know about monkeys. Although Allie has been very isolated this past year having to give up many things that a child should never have to, never once has she complained or asked why. Allie's strength is an inspiration and she truly is a champion in every sense of the word.

Monkeying Around ... The No. 62 Chevrolet Camaro will don a unique paint scheme in this weekend's Nationwide Children's Hospital 200 designed by Nationwide Patient Champion, Allie Norman. The RCR Camaro will feature Norman's favorite color pink and showcase her love of monkeys.

In the Rearview Mirror: Watkins Glen ... The No. 62 South Point team qualified ninth for the Zippo 200 at Watkins Glen International. Gaughan battled a tight-handling race car for the majority of the race. After leading five laps, Gaughan's last scheduled pit stop put him deep in the field causing him to pick up grass on the grille from a competitor driving off course. After water temperatures began to rise, the team was forced to visit pit road to cool down. Gaughan crossed the finish line in 28th-place

To the Points ... Gaughan is currently tied for seventh in the driver point standings as the Nationwide Series heads the final road course race of the season at Mid-Ohio.

Meet Brendan Gaughan ... Gaughan is scheduled to participate in the Nationwide Series autograph session on Friday, August 15beginning at 5:30 p.m. ET.

What are your thoughts on the race at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course?
"We are very excited to be partnering with the Nationwide Children's Hospital at Mid-Ohio. The No. 62 RCR team has been lucky enough to be paired with Nationwide Patient Champion, Allie Norman. She has designed the coolest paint scheme for the team. We found out she loves monkeys and the color pink, so that is what the South Point Chevrolet is going to have. It is going to be a great weekend, hope we can put on a good show for her and the other Nationwide Patient Champions at the race. We know how much I love my road racing, so maybe we can take Allie and the car she inspired to victory lane."
