Richard Childress Racing teammates finished ninth (Brendan Gaughan) and 20th (Ty Dillon). Dillon is fifth in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series driver championship point standings, 68 markers behind the leader; while Gaughan ranks sixth in the standings, 75 points out of the top spot. The No. 3 Chevrolet team is sixth in the Camping World Truck Series owner championship point standings, with the No. 62 team eighth in the standings. According to NASCAR’s Post-Race Loop Data Statistics, Gaughan lead the field in the Closers category after gaining 10 positions during the final 10 percent (five laps) of the event. Gaughan completed 37 Green-Flag Passes, ranking him fourth in the loop data category and was the 10th-Fastest Driver on Restarts. Dillon scored ninth in Average Running Position (9.130) and was the seventh-Fastest Driver Late in a Run. Dillon was the sixth-Fastest Driver on Restarts during the 54-lap affair. Ryan Blaney claimed the victory at Pocono Raceway and was followed to the line by Miguel Paludo, German Quiroga, Joey Coulter and Ross Chastain. The next scheduled Camping World Truck Series race is the Michigan National Guard 200 at Michigan International Speedway on Saturday, August 17. The 12th race of the 2013 season is scheduled to be televised live on SPEED beginning at 12:30 p.m. Eastern Time and broadcast live on Motor Racing Network. Ty Dillon Finishes 20th at Pocono Raceway Ty Dillon and the No. 3 Bass Pro Shops team finished 20th after sustaining right-front damage in the late stages of the 54-lap affair at Pocono Raceway on Saturday. Rain showers forced NASCAR officials to cancel qualifying, setting the starting line up by practice speeds. Dillon started 11th in the Bass Pro Shop Chevrolet for the initial green flag. The Richard Childress Racing driver quickly reported a tight-handling condition on his Chevrolet to the Marcus Richmond-led team. The 21-year-old driver was called to pit road on lap 24 for right-side tires, fuel and a chassis adjustment under green flag conditions. The strategic pit sequence propelled the black and orange Chevrolet into the top five when other competitors pitted later in the race. During the lap-46 restart, Dillon fought for position in a four-wide battle and was forced up into the outside wall sustaining damage to the right side of his machine. With only three laps remaining in the race, Dillon was unable to improve his position and crossed the finish line 20th. Start – 11 Finish – 20 Laps Led – 0 Points – 5th TY DILLON QUOTE: “I hate it for these guys. We had a top-five truck, but we were forced into the wall dashing our hopes for a good finish. I can’t say enough about this Bass Pro Shops team. They keep their heads up even when bad luck has visited us the past few weeks.” Gaughan Brings Home Ninth-Place Finish at Pocono Raceway Brendan Gaughan and the No. 62 South Point Hotel & Casino Chevrolet team earned an impressive ninth-place finish at Pocono Raceway, after battling handling issues during the majority of 54-lap NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event on Saturday afternoon. The Las Vegas native started from the 14th position when rain showers canceled qualifying, setting the field by the NASCAR rule book based off practice speeds. During the early laps, Gaughan alerted the team he was battling a loose-handling black and gold Chevrolet that transitioned to a tight-handling condition as the run progressed. Maintaining a position near the top-20 for much of the scheduled 125-mile event, crew chief Shane Wilson directed his driver to pit road under caution for the team’s final pit stop on lap 43 for four tires, fuel and multiple adjustments to alleviate the handling issues Gaughan was facing. The Richard Childress Racing driver lined up 15th for the final green-white-checkered finish and gained ground during those final laps. A multi-truck incident broke out in front of Gaughan on the final lap, allowing him to cross the finish line ninth. Following his top-10 finish, Gaughan gained one position in the Camping World Truck Series driver championship point standings, moving up to sixth. Start – 14 Finish – 9 Laps Led – 0 Points – 6 BRENDAN GAUGHAN QUOTE: “What a fun way to end the race. I’ll take a top-10 finish anyway we can get it. We didn’t have the best truck out there today, but the South Point Hotel & Casino crew never gave up today and kept working to make our Chevrolet better during the race. We were in the right place at the right time at the end and were able to pick up another top-10 finish.” -Richard Childress Racing PR
