Gaughan Practices at New Hampshire International Speedway
Following two practices at New Hampshire International Speedway on Friday, Brendan Gaughan is optimistic about his chances at the one-mile New England track.
"I think that at the end of our second practice, Bryan (Berry) and the guys got our Chevrolet working right," said Gaughan, who was third in first practice and 12th in second practice said. "We ran the truck all the way out of fuel and we were still turning laps in the 30-teens and 30-20s, so I think we are going to be alright.
"Everybody's chasing Ron Hornaday's Chevy out there today," Gaughan said. "It just looks awesome."
Gaughan said the time on the practice sheet didn't reflect how good his truck could be. In fact, Gaughan said he left some time on the track during his mock qualifying run.
"Our South Point Chevrolet isn't perfect, but Bryan Berry has 200 laps to make it that way during the race and I have said he is the master of adjustments so I think we'll be fine. I think we might even have a top five hidden in this Silverado."
Gaughan, who has three top-10s in four starts at NHIS, will qualify tomorrow at 10:05 a.m. ET on Saturday. The green flag drops at 3 p.m. ET.
