Brendan Gaughan slid to the outside with six laps to go and scored his second NASCAR Nationwide Series win Kentucky Speedway on Saturday night.

After a flurry of late-race cautions set up several restarts in the closing laps of the race, Gaughan slipped by on the outside as rookies Ty Dillon and Chase Elliott battled for the lead. Gaughan who started third on the final restart, cleared by drivers in Turn 1 then pulled away from the field.

“I love my restarts,” said an excited Gaughan from Victory Lane. “It means a lot to win on an oval, especially the way we did it passing Chase Elliott and my teammate Ty Dillon – great race teams, great young race car drivers. But the old dog still had a little something left at the end.”

Gaughan’s teammate Brian Scott also slipped by Dillon and Elliott in the final laps to finish second. Ty Dillon led a race high 155 of the 200 laps but finished third with Chase Elliott holding on to fourth.

Elliott’s teammate at JR Motorsport, Regan Smith rounded out the top-five.

Dillon had dominated Saturday’s race before a caution came out with 31 laps to go for Cody Ware’s blown engine.

The Richard Childress Racing cars were the class of the field for most of the race, finishing 1-2-3 with rookie Cale Conley coming home sixth.

Elliott remains the points leader with a 20-point advantage over Smith with six races to go.

Next week, the NASCAR Nationwide Series heads to Dover International Speedway for the Dover 200.
