2014 Richmond II: Brendan Gaughan NASCAR Nationwide Race Preview

This Week's USAF Combat Controllers KIA Chevrolet at Richmond ... Brendan Gaughan will pilot chassis No. 130 in the NASCAR Nationwide Series Virginia 529 College Savings 250 at Richmond International Raceway. This Richard Childress Racing-prepared Camaro last saw on-track action at Iowa Speedway in August, where Gaughan earned an 11th -place finish.

Gaughan's Stats at Richmond ...The Las Vegas-native will be making his sixth start at the .75-mile track on Friday night. Gaughan has one top-10 finish, completed 1,245 of 1,252 laps ran and averages a starting position of 16.4 and a finish of 18.6. The 39-year-old RCR driver also has three starts at Richmond in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series where he led four laps and earned one top-10 finish of seventh in 2003.

Gaughan & the USAF Combat Controllers KIA ... Brendan Gaughan and the No. 62 Chevrolet Camaro will don a military theme this weekend at Richmond. Gaughan's paint scheme will serve as a tribute to the Combat Controllers (CCT) of today and years past. Each gold star on the hood will feature initials of the CCT that have been Killed In Action while fighting in Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom.

U.S. Air Force Combat Controllers ... Air Force Special Operations Command's combat controllers are battlefield Airmen assigned to special tactics squadrons. They are trained special operations forces and certified FAA air traffic controllers. The mission of a combat controller is to deploy, undetected, into combat and hostile environments to establish assault zones or airfields, while simultaneously conducting air traffic control, fire support, command and control, direct action, counter-terrorism, foreign internal defense, humanitarian assistance and special reconnaissance in the joint arena. Their motto, "First There," reaffirms the combat controller's commitment to undertaking the most dangerous missions behind enemy lines by leading the way for other forces to follow.

In the Rearview Mirror: Atlanta ... The South Point Hotel & Casino team qualified 16th for Saturday night's Great Clips 300 at Atlanta Motor Speedway. Gaughan began reporting tight-handling conditions early in the 195-lap event. The team took every opportunity to improve the handling throughout the evening. The No. 62 South Point Hotel & Casino team crossed the finish line in the 14th position.

To the Points ...As the Series heads to Richmond International Raceway, Gaughan remains eighth in the Nationwide Series championship standings, 19 points out of seventh.

What are your thoughts going to Richmond?
"Richmond International Raceway has never been too kind to me. The No. 62 RCR team and I are hoping to change that this weekend and improve from the last time we were here in April. With only nine races left this season we have to buckle down and give it everything we've got."
