Brendan had this to say after the race:
"I love racing in the rain; it's fun," said Gaughan, who was in the 2010 Montreal race, and has driven in rain several other times in other series. "And when you're good at it, it makes it even more fun.
"I haven't smelled blood in a long time, that's something I've been lacking lately, that killer attitude. When it started to rain, even without the wiper blade, I started to smell blood and said, 'I'm coming.'
"It's fun to watch guys who haven't done it in the rain. They don't understand the rain line, and fortunately for me, I did."
South Point Hotel and Casino is located south of Mandalay Bay on the Las Vegas Strip.
