Gaughan, Wilson reunited in Trucks

Wednesday, Dec. 05, 2012

Brendan Gaughan will reunite with crew chief Shane Wilson to run a full season in the NASCAR Truck Series in 2013 for Richard Childress Racing.

The duo racked up six wins and finished fourth in points in Trucks in 2003. Since then both Gaughan and Wilson have competed for different teams in the Sprint Cup and Nationwide series.

Gaughan will drive the No. 62 Chevrolet sponsored by South Point Hotel & Casino.

"I'm thrilled to be back in the Truck Series for a full season," said Gaughan. "I would have been thankful to compete full time for Richard Childress Racing in any series, but returning to the trucks will provide me a second chance to go out and win the Truck Series championship.

"I can't wait to be reunited with my former crew chief Shane Wilson; all of my Truck Series wins have come with Shane on the pit box. Now that we're back together, we're going to do all that we can to get that championship we should have brought home years ago."

Driving for RCR in 2012, Gaughan competed in eight Truck races and 10 Nationwide races.

"We have some unfinished business we need to take care of next season. With our resources from Richard Childress Racing, Brendan being a veteran Truck Series driver and our former history, I think it's safe to say that we will be a very competitive team in 2013," Wilson said.
