Gaughan Looking For More After Memphis Practice
After two practices at Memphis Motorsports Park on Friday evening, Brendan Gaughan says his No. 77 South Point Casino Silverado still needs a little something more in order to find themselves fighting for a victory in Saturday's O'Reilly 200.
"I don't think we're awful, but I don't think we are a winning Chevy yet," Gaughan said. "Bryan Berry (crew chief) and the boys will go back to the hotel tonight and dissect what all we have done, diagnose our problems and come back with a game plan for tomorrow. That's the great thing about the help that we have gotten from Chevrolet. We can go to the other Chevrolet teams, find out what they are doing, get assistance from them and hopefully hit upon the right thing. We'll just go lean on some of our buddies and come back tomorrow."
In the second practice, Gaughan scraped the wall coming out of turn two and did cosmetic damage to the right side, as well as some slight damage to the splitter.
"It's just typical short track racing. We were a little loose coming off the turn and we scraped the wall. The thing is with the new nose and the splitter - it's actually wider than the tires. We did a little damage, but it wasn't a big deal at all."
The O'Reilly 200 will start tomorrow at 8 p.m. CT on SPEED.
