NASCAR's Brian Scott Carries Momentum Into Richmond Race

Horn FanSenior Writer IApril 29, 2010

Braun Racing rookie Brian Scott will have AccuDocSolutions on his No. 11 Toyota for Friday night's Bubba Burger 250 at Richmond International Raceway.

He'll be riding a wave of momentum heading to Richmond after picking up his second top-10 finish of the year at Talladega in a damaged car.

Scott also has completed 93.4 percent of the possible laps in 2010, the highest amongst the rookies.

He is also leading the Raybestos Rookie standings by seven points over James Buescher and sits eighth in the driver points standings.

Scott turned his first lap ever in NASCAR at Richmond, testing a Camping World Truck Series truck.

He'll be making his second Nationwide start at Richmond.

In Scott's debut start at Richmond, he started 10th, ran a really good race, and was running 11th with 15 laps to go when he got caught up in a wreck, not of his doing, and finished the day 32nd.

Scott, his crew chief Billy Wilburn, and his No. 11 team are excited that they can use race notes to help them prepare the set-up of his Toyota Camry this week.

His team hopes they can duplicate that set-up and Scott hopes to have a better result this time around.

"I've always liked Richmond. The modulation of the brakes on entry and the fast corners make for some exciting racing for the fans," Scott said.

Scott will be racing chassis No. BR42 at Richmondโ€”in its last start he picked up a 16th place finish at Phoenix.

He should have another fast ride, qualify well, and feel that it'll be another race he will spend the majority of in the top-15.

If Scott races smart and has patient we could see him pick-up his first top-five finish, besting his best career finish of 10th.
