South Point Hotel & Casino in 2018 will return to Richard Childress Racing as the primary sponsor on the No. 21 Chevrolet Camaro driven by Daniel Hemric in the NASCAR XFINITY Series.
The upcoming season marks the seventh year of a partnership between RCR and the Las Vegas-based hotel and casino.
“The South Point Hotel & Casino is excited to be continuing our partnership with Richard Childress Racing in the 2018 season,” said Michael Gaughan, owner of the South Point. We’re looking forward to continuing the accomplishments during this coming season with Daniel Hemric. Daniel is a great driver and we know he will represent the South Point well both on and off the track.”
South Point’s partnership with RCR began in 2012, when Brendan Gaughan, now in a reduced driving role, ran a limited XFINITY Series and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series schedule with Richard Childress Racing. In the most recent season of competition, Gaughan and the South Point Hotel & Casino team earned a top-10 finish in the driver standings after making the 2017 XFINITY Series playoffs.
“RCR and the Gaughan Family have had a special relationship that we’re thrilled to be able to continue,” said Richard Childress, Chairman and CEO of RCR. “As with RCR, the South Point Hotel and Casino has a rich history in stock car racing and it is a part of our heritage. Daniel made it to the XFINITY Series Championship 4 this past season and we look forward to another season of watching him compete for the championship.”
