Brian Scott To Drive for Braun Racing at Richmond

Horn FanSenior Writer IMay 1, 2009

NASCAR Truck Series driver Brian Scott is back this weekend racing with Braun Racing in Friday night's Lipton Tea 250 Nationwide race at Richmond International Raceway.

It will be Scott's first career start at the track, but he has logged laps at the track testing with his Xpress Motorsports truck team in 2007 and 2008.

To prepare for the Lipton Tea 250, he tested with the No. 10 Great Clips team at Mobile Speedway.

"I'm looking forward to another Nationwide Series race this weekend with Braun Racing in the No. 10 Great Clips Camry," said Scott.

He's riding a streak of momentum with a top five and two top 10 finishes in the last tree truck races and a top 15 finish at Phoenix in the Nationwide Series.

I think he'll run another top 15 or better finish at Richmond. He just needs to qualify well, log laps, and stay out of trouble. If he has a good car after the last pit stop, just go for it and race hard for a good finish.

It's the third of his four starts, for Braun Racing and he'll be running next week at Darlington.

I hope Scott has a great finish, and that this four-race deal with Braun Racing turns into a full-time ride down the road.

Scott is tremendously talented racer, with a very bright future in NASCAR. We may see him make a Championship run in the truck series this year.

It would be really awesome to see that happen, as it would also open some doors for him on the way to the Cup series.
