BRIAN SCOTT SET TO MAKE HIS NASCAR NATIONWIDE SERIES DEBUT THIS WEEKEND AT NASHVILLE SUPERSPEEDWAY WITH BRAUN RACING
Brian Scott to pilot Braun Racing's No. 10 Toyota Camry in four Nationwide Series races
MOORESVILLE, NC (April 7, 2009) -- Braun Racing is pleased to announce that Brian Scott will pilot the No. 10 Toyota Camry for four upcoming Nationwide Series races including this Saturday's Pepsi 300 at Nashville Superspeedway. This weekend's event will mark Scott's debut in the Nationwide Series.
Plans call for Scott to drive the No. 10 Toyota for four races including events at Nashville Superspeedway and Phoenix International Raceway. The remaining two races in which Scott will drive the No. 10 entry will be announced at a later date. Stewart Cooper, who oversees shop operations at Braun Racing, will serve as crew chief on the No. 10 car for those races.
This weekend Scott will carry the colors of Braun Racing marketing partner, Dollar General, whose headquarters is based just outside of Nashville in Goodlettsville, Tenn. In next weekend's race at Phoenix International Raceway, Scott will sport the familiar black and white logo of another Braun Racing marketing partner, Great Clips, Inc.
The Boise, Idaho-native cut his teeth racing mini-sprints on dirt tracks throughout Idaho and Washington. After realizing both his talent and passion for racing, Scott moved up to 360 sprints where he produced a late-season win and a second place finish at the 360 Nationals in Alger, Wash. at Skagit Speedway. In 2006, Scott moved to North Carolina to further pursue his career in racing and made the switch from dirt to asphalt to race Super Late Models. The following year he progressed to the USAR Hooter's Pro Cup Series, running a limited number of races. In 11 starts, Scott earned four top-five finishes and one pole. In September of 2007 Scott began competing in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. Scott is currently in his second year of full-time competition in the series, driving the No. 16 Toyota Tundra for Xpress Motorsports. In 36 starts in the series, he has accumulated two top-five and nine top-10 finishes. He currently sits 12th in the point standings after four races this season.
Scott is extremely pleased that he will have the opportunity to make his Nationwide Series debut in a Braun Racing entry.
"I am so grateful to have the opportunity to join forces with Braun Racing for these upcoming races," said Scott. "Braun Racing is a top-notch organization in the Nationwide Series with first-rate equipment. All three of their cars consistently run up front and have the ability to contend for the win week in and week out. As a driver making his debut in the Nationwide Series, you can't ask to be in a better situation."
