Brian Scott's Looking For a Career Best Finish at Nashville

Horn FanSenior Writer IApril 2, 2010

Braun Racing rookie Brian Scott will have Dollar General on-board his No. 11, at Nashville for the Nashville 300 on Saturday and he also will carry a special Autism Speaks logo on his car.

He's making his second career Nationwide start at the track, in his debut he started 24th and finished 25th. Due to getting caught in a wreck not of his doing.

Scott's run two races in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, at Nashville. Last season, he ran out of laps trying to pass Ron Hornaday for the win, but ultimately finished second and got the education of his life following the wily veteran.

Scott also picked up his first career win in NASCAR, at another concrete track last season at Dover International Speedway.

He was really good on the concrete tracks in the series and it should help him with being familiar on what to expect handling wise.

It's the fifth of five races that Scott and his No. 11 General Dollar team will need to qualify for on speed. I doubt he'll have any problems making the field with his team's focus on qualifying; it should be a top-10 start or better.

Scott will be racing chassis No. BR51 this weekend and it picked up a finish of 10th at California.

He'll have a really good Camry, be fast all race long, and we could see him put the No. 11 on the pole.

Scott should spend the majority of the race in the top 10, he's better on concrete than what many realize.

I wouldn't be shocked to see him challenging for the win, but no doubt he'll pick up a career best finish that tops his best effort of 10th.

Now with the possibility of rain Saturday, Scott's crew chief Bill Wilburn could use pit strategy and mother nature to get the win.
