NASCAR's Brian Scott: Just Focusing On Racing at Phoenix

Horn FanSenior Writer IApril 8, 2010

Braun Racing rookie Brian Scott will have BigSpot.com on his No. 11 Camry at Phoenix, for Friday night's Bashas Supermarkets 200.

Scott and his No. 11 team, led by Bill Wilburn, is excited that they can just focus on his race setup and no longer have to worry about qualifying.

After Nashville, the 2010 owner points kicked in and all the teams hardwork paid off with him sitting 17th in those points.

It's a track were Scott has racing experience. In his Nationwide Series debut he started 23rd and finished 15th.

Now in the Camping World Truck Series, he's run three races picking up a top five in 2008 and finished 11th in last year's race.

Scott has completed 100 percent of those laps with an average start of 12th and a average finish of 11th.

His experience with trucks, nearly winning in 2008 if not for a bad pit stop, will help him know what to expect from the track and boost his confidence.  

"It's a place that I get around pretty well. The entry speeds to the corner are so fast and modulating the brake takes a lot of finesse. I have a lot of fun hustling the car into the corner and getting it to turn for a good drive off," Scott said.

"There's usually a lot of side-by-side racing for the fans as it's pretty wide and the second groove gets worked in well by mid-race."

Scott always likes racing on the West Coast, since he has family and friends who make the trip from Boise to see him race and normally has a good night in those events.

This week he'll be racing chassis No. BR42 at Phoenix and it's a completely rebuilt chassis for the team to race.

I'm excited for Scott and his Wilburn led No. 11 BigSpot.com team as they only need to focus on his race setup. He should have a very fast Camry because of this.

Scott should be close to the top-five in both practices, should qualify in the top-10 and I won't be surprised to see him put the No.11 on the front row.

While I think Scott will run the majority of the race in the top-15, he'll battle hard to top his career best finish of 10th and will finish top-five.
