Braun Racing's rookie Brian Scott will be driving the No. 11 StopRepairBills.com Toyota at Daytona in Saturday's Drive 4 COPD 300.
With two previous starts at Daytona in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, Scott is eager to start his rookie campaign in the Nationwide Series. He finished 10th, and completed all 200 possible laps in the Camping World Truck Series.
Naturally, Scott is looking forward to his upcoming race.
"Racing at Daytona has always been special to me, but this year I have a lot to be excited about," said Scott.
"I have a new series, new team, new crew chief, new sponsors, new everything. After three years in the Camping World Truck Series, making the step to the Nationwide Series full- time is very exciting."
Crew chief Bill Wilburn will be calling his first race with Scott. In the off-season Wilburn and Scott spent some time building their chemistry. Scott, who is eager to work with his new crew, feels Braun Racing did an excellent job putting the team together.
He feels good about himself and Wilburn being on the same page. They know each others' goals and should have no problems communicating.
Even more exciting for Scott is the fact that this year's rookie class in the Nationwide Series is NASCAR's best in all three of it's top divisions.
Along with Scott, two other Truck Series alumni Colin Braun and James Buescher, and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. racing this weekend, it should be a good battle.
I'll be rooting for Scott.
It'll be exciting watching him race this season in the Nationwide and I hope he wins the Raybestos honors.
Racing chassis No. BR49, which is a brand new superspeedway car, Scott well need to qualify well.
I hope he runs a smart race, stays out of trouble, and sets himself up for a great finish. I would love to see him pick up a top-10, but will be happy if he tops his career-best 14th place finish in the series.
