South Point Racing's Third Day at Daytona Cut Short
Brendan Gaughan and the No. 77 South Point Racing team didn’t get a lot of track time on Sunday at Daytona International Speedway. With rain keeping the track quiet for most of the morning, Gaughan didn’t get on track until early afternoon.
When Gaughan did get on track, he told his team that the No. 77 Silverado was better; but a motor issue kept the team from making more gains.
“We bought engines from someone else to jump start Kroyer Racing Engines transition to Chevrolets,” Gaughan said. “Kevin (Kroyer) has been piecing together parts to find horsepower and do what Kevin does best.
“This motor was round one of trying to make it a Kroyer Racing Engine. There’s no issue with our motors, and we don’t doubt them. I believe that Kevin Kroyer builds the best motors in this garage. This is just part of the learning curve in trying to switch back to Chevrolets.
“I told the boys it was easy to be a team when you are winning championships, but sometimes it’s tough to be a team when you are trying to get there,” Gaughan continued. “This team has a lot of fun together even in bad times, and this year we are going to make team work easy.”
