Brian Scott Will Look for a Good Finish at Darlington

Horn FanSenior Writer IMay 6, 2010

Braun Racing rookie Brian Scott will have AccuDoc Solutions on his No. 11 Toyota at Friday night's Royal Purple 200 at Darlington Raceway. He'll be looking to rebound at Darlington after a tough weekend at Richmond and will be focused on having a good finish.

"If you can go to the next race track and put together a fast lap to get yourself to the top of the charts, that's the best way to forget what happened last week," Scott said.

Scott has also completed 92.4 percent of the possible laps in 2010, the highest among the rookies. He is also leading the Raybestos Rookie standings by five points over James Buescher and sits 10th in the driver points standings.

He'll be making his second Nationwide start at Richmond. In Scott's debut start at Darlington, he started 21st, ran a smart race, and finished 20th.

Scott, his crew chief Billy Wilburn, and his No. 11 team are focused on having a good run on their race team owner Harry Scott's home track.

Darlington's a unique track. It's very fast, multi-grooved, and you can carry a lot of speed into the corners. It's nicknamed "the Lady in Black" because half the field will end up with a Darlington stripe, and it lends itself to some pretty exciting racing for the fans. 

Scott's looking forward to racing Darlington, and he's confident his team will provide him with a fast AccuDoc Solutions Camry and racing in the high-line. 

Scott will be racing chassis No. BR46 at Darlington—in its last start, he finished 31st place finish at Las Vegas. 

He should have another fast ride, a qualify top-15. It should be another race he'll run top 20 or better most of the race.

Scott will need to run a smart and patient race, and we could see him battle his way to a top 13 or just miss out on a top 10 finish at Darlington.
