41-Year-Old Driver – Richard Childress Racing

 

2017 Fantasy Racing Outlook

The 40-year-old veteran will be back for another season of racing at RCR. Gaughan now has three full seasons of competition under his belt with this team. Last year he racked up four Top-5 and 16 Top-10 finishes, both career-high marks for this driver. However, Gaughan failed to visit victory lane for the second-straight season and finished a lowly 12th in the overall driver standings. This was due mostly to the newly implemented Chase format in the Xfinity Series. Gaughan will be paired again with crew chief Shane Wilson and they’ll see if they can get the No. 62 Chevrolet back into victory lane in the coming season. While that’s not very likely, we should still see strong consistency from this driver and team on the larger ovals, road course and cookie cutter tracks. Only the short tracks seem to be his biggest weakness.
