Effervescent NASCAR personality Brendan Gaughan taught school children life lessons from the depths of the Newport Aquarium shark tank during a visit to promote our September event weekend which featured the NASCAR XFINITY Series VisitMyrtleBeach.com 300 along with the ARCA Racing Series Zloop 150.

The dive proved to be an ultimate precursor for his first Kentucky Speedway NXS victory just weeks later. He foreshadowed his pending success by explaining the benefits of teamwork while sharks circled above and behind.

"It always takes a team, no matter what you're going to do in life. You're going to work in a business environment that takes a team.

"The best parents work as teams. Some pick you up from school, some drop you off at school. Some cook breakfast, some cook dinner. It takes a team. If you learn that and appreciate it, you'll get a lot further and be a lot happier sooner."

Watch for more about Gaughan's VisitMyrtleBeach.com 300 exploits later in our countdown.
