Gaughan's Stats at Atlanta ... The Las Vegas-native will make his third Nationwide Series start at the 1.54-mile track on Saturday night. In two previous starts, Gaughan averages a start of 27th and a finish of 23.5. The 39-year-old driver also has eight starts in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, where he led five laps, completed 1,040 of 1,045 laps and earned two top-10 finishes.

Don Vito's Italian at South Point ... When Italian cuisine strikes your fancy; Don Vito's Italian at South Point Hotel & Casino is the place to visit. The culinary team starts with only the freshest ingredients and transforms them into traditional favorites that Don Vito's regulars rave about. Start with a Caprese style salad of ripe tomatoes, fresh basil and mozzarella Chef Matthew Rios makes by hand and then move into a second course of homemade gnocchi and ravioli, which are two local favorites. The accommodating services will make your pre-show dinner, special occasion or night on the town an even more memorable experience.

In the Rearview Mirror: Bristol ... Gaughan and the No. 62 South Point Hotel & Casino team captured their fifth top-10 finish on Friday night in the Food City 300 at Bristol Motor Speedway. After qualifying 11th for the 300-lap event, Gaughan spent the majority of the evening inside the top 10, making the right adjustments to bring the Richard Childress Racing Camaro home in the sixth position.

To the Points ... Gaughan remains eighth in the driver point standings, 18 points behind seventh, as the Nationwide Series heads into Saturday night's race at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

What are your thoughts on Atlanta Motor Speedway?
"Atlanta has always been very unique, with brute speed and high-banks. It is just a fast race track that has a few bumps and a lot of rolls. If you look back, it has some of the most famous finishes in NASCAR."

Is tire management key at Atlanta?
"Tire management has always been important at Atlanta. I have not been there in a few years. I am still going to say that learning to manage your tires at the track is crucial, because it is so fast you do not want your tires to get hurt early."
