Gaughan Optimistic for Michigan 200
After two practices at Michigan International Speedway today, Brendan Gaughan and the South Point Racing Team have a positive outlook heading into Saturday’s Michigan 200.
“What really was nice about today was how well the guys performed during both practices,” Gaughan said. “We definitely got the most out of both practices, and the guys did a really good job getting changes in after each and every run. They were hustling.
“I think our South Point Chevrolet is decent. We were 17th in both practices, but that could be a little deceiving because we never did one qualifying run. We worked on our race setup all day because that’s the most important thing. Qualifying isn’t that important here. Tomorrow we’re going to sticker and tape it up and see how much horsepower we have.
“I’m optimistic that our Chevrolet Silverado can have a good run. We’re just going to try and not have anyone wreck me this week.”
The green flag will fall on the Michigan 200 tomorrow at 12:00 p.m. PT. The race will be aired live on SPEED.
