Scott talks Talladega

"I think everyone knows what to expect when you get to Talladega. It's a pretty easy track to drive, but you need to have a lot of luck and good eyes in the sky with a good spotter. Survival is the name of the game. We just have to hope that our AccuDoc Toyota won't get caught up in the big one. I've been to Talladega a couple of times before and had a really good finish in 2009. We finished seventh, but we had a shot at the win on the last lap, which is all you can ask for. Talladega is a fun place."

Scott talks first Nationwide start at Talladega

"There isn't much difference between the Nationwide Series and the Camping World Truck series when it comes to drafting. I have three other teammates to work with, which makes four Braun Racing cars total. That gives us some pretty good odds against the field to go to the front. Experience or not, drafting partners are all you need at Talladega.

Scott on the short week

"Because of the rain delay in Texas, our team lost two days in the shop. We're in the middle of a stretch that takes us all the way to mid-May and missing two days in the shop is rough. I went to the shop this week as soon as we got back to pitch a hand in anywhere I could, whether it was running errands or putting in seats. The NASCAR schedule is grueling, no matter how many years you've done it. Braun Racing has been doing this for a while and they have a good idea on chassis scheduling and what not. I feel really good about Billy Wilburn's plan of attack for the next few races and I'm confident we'll continue to put fast racecars on the racetrack every weekend. ."

Equipment Information

The No. 11 Dollar General team is bringing chassis No. BR49 for this weekend's Aaron's 312. BR49 was last used at Daytona earlier this season where it was wrecked and finished 19th after being involved in a wreck.
