Brian Scott will kick off the 2013 season in Richard Childress Racing’s No. 2 Shore Lodge Chevrolet Camaro. 2013 marks the 25-year-old’s fourth year of full-time NASCAR Nationwide Series competition.
A native of Boise, Idaho, Scott has been racing competitively since the age of 12. One of his early career highlights came at the 360 Nationals at Skagit Speedway in Alger, Wash., when he competed against an elite field of dirt racers and brought home an impressive second-place finish. That moment affirmed his and his family’s belief that Scott had the talent to compete at the highest levels of racing.
Scott moved east to North Carolina in 2006 to make the jump from dirt track racing to asphalt ovals. He split his time between the USAR Pro Cup and racing Late Models and made his NASCAR Camping World Series debut at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in September 2007, before going on to compete in seven Camping World Truck Series events that year.
Scott returned in 2008 to run the full season in the Camping World Truck Series and finished second in the race for the Rookie of the Year title on the merit of two top-five and seven top-10 finishes. He claimed his first Camping World Truck Series win at Dover International Speedway in May 2009 and posted seven top-fives and 13 top-10 finishes over the course of the season to finish seventh in the driver championship point standings. That same year, Scott made his first career Nationwide Series start at Nashville Superspeedway.
In 2010, Scott made the jump to full-time Nationwide Series competition and earned one top-five and five top-10 finishes that season en route to finishing as the runner-up for Rookie of the Year honors. His 2011 Nationwide Series campaign earned him one pole award, two top-five finishes and seven top-10 finishes. He scored the Featherlite Most Improved Driver of the Year award and finished eighth in the Nationwide Series driver championship point standings. He returned in 2012 to claim two top-five and 11 top-10 finishes and a second top-10 result in the driver championship point standings. In addition to competing in the Nationwide Series in 2012, Scott returned to the Camping World Truck Series for five races and earned two top-five and three top-10 finishes, including a visit to Victory Lane at Phoenix International Raceway (November).
An avid outdoorsman, Scott enjoys hunting, fishing and skiing when he is away from the track. He has been known to take some of those sports to the “extreme” level, including helicopter skiing. Although a born athlete, Scott graduated from high school as an honor student with a 4.0 GPA.
