Brendan Gaughan and the No. 2 South Point Hotel & Casino team were relegated to a 23rd-place finish in the Lucas Oil 150 after being involved in an on-track incident on lap 111 while running in the top five at Phoenix International Raceway. The Las Vegas native started the scheduled 150-lap event from the 19th position and quickly began his trek toward the front of the pack, moving into the top 10 on lap 41 following a visit to pit road under caution-flag conditions. As the race progressed, Gaughan continued to move forward in the running order, taking over the fifth position on lap 109. The 37-year-old driver had settled into the top five when another competitor made contact with the black and gold machine sending it spinning into the outside retaining wall. The No. 2 Chevrolet sustained severe damage from the contact with the wall, bringing the team’s night to an early end and relegating them to a 23rd-place result. Start – 19                    Finish – 23               Laps Led – 0              Owner’s Points – 10th BRENDAN GAUGHAN QUOTE: “This was definitely not the way we wanted to end the night. The team gave me a great South Point Hotel & Casino Chevrolet tonight and to be taken out of the race while running in the top five was really disappointing. I have to thank everyone at Richard Childress Racing for giving me such great equipment each week and Richard (Childress, team owner) for the opportunity to run for his team.”
