Brian Scott in his third year at Richard Childress Racing will pilot the No. 2 Chevrolet Camaro in the NASCAR XFINITY Series in 2015. This season will mark his sixth in the Series. Scott and team will be led by crew chief Mike Hillman, Jr. with hopes to contend for the Series championship.
Momentum is carrying over for Scott and his No. 2 crew after 2014 seasons end. With a career-best season finishing fourth in the driver championship point standings, earning six top-five, 23 top-10 finishes and three pole awards, two at Chicagoland Speedway and one at Richmond International Raceway, Scott has proved to be a threat for the championship.
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 racing between USAR Pro Cup and Late Models. Scott made his NASCAR Camping World Series debut at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in September 2007, and went on to compete in seven Camping World Truck Series events that year.
Scott returned to the Camping World Truck Series in 2008 to run a full season, finishing 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 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 finishing seventh in the driver championship point standings. That same year, Scott made his first career XFINITY Series start at Nashville Superspeedway.
In 2010, Scott made the jump to run a full-time XFINITY Series schedule and earned one top-five and five top-10 finishes that season. Scott went on to finish in the runner-up position for Rookie of the Year honors. His 2011 XFINITY 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 XFINITY 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 XFINITY Series in 2012, Scott returned to the Camping World Truck Series victory Lane at Phoenix International Raceway (November).
After joining RCR in 2013, the season proved to be a stellar year for the 26-year-old. He earned two second-place finishes at Indianapolis Motor Speedway and Richmond International Raceway along with his second career pole award at Richmond International Raceway. Scott notched three top-five and 13 top-10 finishes and a career high 254 laps led en route to a seventh-place point’s finish.
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. In addition to a natural born athlete, Scott graduated from high school as an honor student with a 4.0 GPA.
