Scott talks Nashville Superspeedway

"I love Nashville Superspeedway. We had a really good run in the Camping World Truck series last year, finishing second with a shot to win. We couldn't quite get up to Hornaday's outside on the late race restart and we let one get away. Nashville has been a track that I've had some success at. I ran my first NASCAR Nationwide Series race there. I have some experience there in the Nationwide car and I'm excited to go with the Braun Racing No. 11 team with Dollar General and Autism Speaks on our Toyota Camry."

Scott talks about the pressure of points

"It will be a relief to get out of the "go or go home" qualifying format after this fifth race. It adds so much stress to the whole weekend. It effects your whole mindset. Practice is limited to making sure the car gets in the show as opposed to making the car fast for the race. Once we get locked in, the team and I can focus on the racing and get back to a normal weekend. Hopefully we can qualify the car quick at Nashville and move on with our season.

Scott on Dollar General and Autism Speaks

"I made my first NASCAR Nationwide Series start with Dollar General and I'm looking forward to representing them and providing awareness for Autism Speaks. It's a terrible disease that affects one in 125 kids. They don't really have a cure or, really even a good understanding of the disease, so it's important to raise money and spread awareness to make a difference."

Equipment Information

The No. 11 Dollar General team is bringing chassis No. BR51 for this weekend's Nashville 300. BR51 was last used at California earlier this season where it contended for the lead early and eventually finished 10th.
