Brian Scott's Diamond Hill Plywood 200 Race Preview

With the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series having another off weekend.

Brian Scott will be busy driving the No. 10 General Dollar Camry, for Braun Racing, under the lights in Friday nights Diamond Hill Plywood 200 at Darlington Raceway.

It's his fourth start in the Nationwide Series this season and also Scott's first race at Darlington.

Just like with Richmond, he has tested at the speedway with his Camping World Truck Series team.

Scott and the No. 16 Albertson's team, had a great test session last December at the track and he ran really fast with his Tundra.

"It's definitely a challenging race track with both ends of the track being so different," said Scott.

"Finding a good balance is key."

"You have to accept fact that your car is not going to be perfect on either end of the track so you just have to figure where you can make up the most time to beat your competitors."

Scott should qualify well, which will make his job easier at  the track and not having to work his way to the front.

His crew chief Stewart Cooper should be a big help for him, since he has a lot of experience at Darlington.

Scott should run top 15 or better, stay on the lead lap, more importantly stay out of trouble and with a good handling car late in the race will be vying for a top 10 finish.

Last week at Richmond, Scott looked really good ran top 15 all night. Then in the closing laps while battling for 10th place, he got caught up in a late wreck not of his doing and finished a disappointing 32rd.

Once a gain his No. 10 General Dollar Camry will be chassis No. BR033, also dubbed "Golden Child" and it has visited victory lane year in May with Kyle Busch.

After Richmond his Braun team had to work hard in the shop getting the car ready to race this week.

I'm excited by what I've of Scott in these four races with Braun Racing and he's ready for the next step to Sprint Cup.

I hope it leads to a full-time Nationwide Series ride in 2010 and preferably not a shared ride with a Cup driver.
