Brian Scott Finishes 25th in First NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Daytona 500 Race
Nearing the halfway mark, Scott experienced radio issues, and through the next 40 laps, spotter Billy O'Dea directed the driver around the 2.5-mile Superspeedway. As speedway racing goes, Scott got collected in three on-track accidents. His Whitetail Chevrolet team had a "never give up" attitude making repairs to the Chevrolet SS and went onto finish 25th in the Daytona 500.
Brian Scott quote:
"Once again, that was superspeedway racing. We spent half of the race without radio communication. Thank goodness I could hear my spotter, but I was only hearing white noise when he didn't key the radio. We would've had a top-10, top-15 finish if we didn't get caught up there at the end. My guys never gave up and worked extremely hard to keep our Whitetail Chevrolet running as best as can be all day long."
