Brendan Gaughan scored a 10th-place finish at Iowa Speedway with the Richard Childress Racing No. 33 South Point Hotel & Casino team on Sunday afternoon. The team started from the 13th position, and early in the run, Gaughan reported to the Ernie Cope-led crew the No. 33 developed a tight-handling condition.

The caution flag was displayed on lap 72 with the No.33 Chevrolet running in the 15th position, and Cope called the driver down pit road for four tires, fuel and a chassis adjustment to alleviate the tight condition. A quick pit stop by the RCR team helped Gaughan pick up four spots as he returned to the field in the 11th position. The Las Vegas native worked his way into the ninth position by lap 125, but continued to fight a tight-handling condition and fell to the 12th position on lap 207. With 10 laps remaining, Gaughan pushed forward into the 10th position, where he would remain as the checkered flag was displayed. The No. 33 team sits in the fifth position in the Nationwide Series championship owner’s point standings.

Start – 13         Finish – 10     Laps Led –  0    Owner’s Points – 5

BRENDAN GAUGHAN: “I always enjoy running with Ernie Cope and the whole Richard Childress Racing team. Today we had a really good car, but it was pretty tight right off the bat. Our pit crew was awesome today, and they really helped us get off pit road fast and make those adjustments to help with the tight-handling car. We were able to fight our way to the 10th position.”
