LAS VEGAS—A tenth place run in the Boyd Gaming 300 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway and the topic of retirement were discussed with Xfinity Series driver Brendan Gaughan post-race Saturday.Gaughan picked up his second top-ten finish of 2016, breaking down his day.
“Definitely not what we wanted coming out of Las Vegas,” Gaughan said to The Racing Experts. “We wanted to be a lot better than top-ten.“...First race this year that we weren’t as good as last year. Still, brought it home in top-ten, that’s half the battle with these things, is keep chipping off top-tens. It looks good for the stat line and does good for points, but wanted to do a whole lot better than that for the hometown crowd.
On Friday, the Las Vegas Review-Journal ran an article talking about the possible “end of NASCAR road” for Gaughan.
“Michael Gaughan somedays has a big mouth and doesn’t know what he’s saying,” Gaughan said. “Every year, we don’t know if we’re going to retire or not. It’s never a just deal where all of a sudden we’re retiring.
“We race for year-to-year, we have one year contracts with Richard. I love racing, I love what I do, and I don’t know when it’s going to end nor do I care when it’s going to end. I’m just having fun and going to do this as long as we can keep winning. We’ll try to keep running.”
