BRIAN SCOTT, No. 11 AccuDoc Toyota Camry, Braun Racing

Are you looking forward to this weekend's race at Richmond? "Richmond is a place I always look forward to. It's actually the first NASCAR track I ever ran on as I tested a Camping World Truck there. I've always liked Richmond. The modulation of the brakes on entry and the fast corners make for some exciting racing for the fans. I was fortunate to run a NASCAR Nationwide Series race there for Braun Racing at the end of last year and had a good shot at a solid top-10 before being involved in a late race incident. Coming off of a top-10 in Talladega gives us some momentum and carrying it through to another top-10 run in Richmond would be huge. Hopefully we can continue our good runs in the No. 11 AccuDoc Camry for this weekend's Bubba Burger 250 and keep climbing up the points ladder."
