Brendan Gaughan will reunite with crew chief Shane Wilson to run a full season and compete for the 2013 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series championship in Richard Childress Racing's No. 62 South Point Hotel & Casino Chevrolet Silverado.
Driving for RCR in 2012, the Las Vegas native competed in eight NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races (three top-five and five top-10 finishes) and 10 NASCAR Nationwide Series races. He has competed in six full seasons in the Camping World Truck Series since he made his series debut in 1997. In 195 races, Gaughan has earned eight victories, 67 top-10 finishes and three pole awards. He is also scheduled to run two races on the 2013 Nationwide Series schedule, at Las Vegas Motor Speedway (March 9) and Road America (June 22).
The No. 62 South Point Hotel & Casino team will begin the 2013 Camping World Truck Series season with the owner points earned by RCR's No. 22 entry in 2012.
"We have greatly enjoyed our relationship with Richard Childress Racing and jumped at the opportunity to continue this partnership," said Ryan Growney, South Point CEO. "With some of the top drivers, crews and management in the sport, Richard Childress Racing is a perfect representative for the South Point brand on the racetrack."
