Gaughan Says He Won't Deny His Family
Truck racer Brendan Gaughan, a four-time winner at TMS, spent the 2004 season in Cup with Penske Racing South. When he moved up to Cup, he was told not to mention that his family owns The Orleans hotel and casino in Las Vegas.
"I'll never do that again," Gaughan said. "I'm not going to go somewhere that I can't say my dad [Michael] owned a casino and my grandfather [Jackie Gaughan] was a casino pioneer in 1948.
"I'm very proud of what my dad and grandfather have accomplished. If I ever went back to Cup, they would have to understand I'm not going to deny my heritage."
