Brian Scott finished better than he started in his last eight Cup races despite announcing his retirement from driving.
With the weight of this decision off his shoulders, he seemed to improve. Scott came one position shy of winning his first Cup race as a Rookie of the Year contender when he finished second to Joey Logano at Talladega SuperSpeedway. His final race was also successful with a 15th in the Ford 400. Dec 1 - 3:25 PM

Brian Scott qualified 22nd and stayed out of trouble throughout the Ford EcoBoost 400 to finish respectably in 15th.

Brian Scott announced his retirement from Cup racing earlier this year in order to spend more time with his family. He has the moral victory of a top-15 to complete his career, which is his sixth top-15 in 53 races. Richard Petty Motorsports continues to search for a driver to fill the No. 44.

Brian Scott has finished in the 30s in his last five efforts on short, flat tracks.

Scott has generally raced worse than he qualified in these events also, which means he is not only scoring minimally but also losing place-differential points. Earlier this season he finished 27th at Phoenix International Raceway and 26th at Martinsville Speedway, but he was unable to back that up this fall on the half-miler. He finished 34th in his last Martinsville attempt.

Richard Petty Motorsports and Brian Scott today announced Scott, driver of the No. 44 Richard Petty Motorsports Ford, will retire from full-time competition in NASCAR at the end of the 2016 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season.

Scott has made the personal decision to focus on his young and growing family and also the next phase of his career. He began competing in NASCAR's national series in 2007, debuting in the NASCAR Camping World Series (full-time in 2008 and 2009). From 2010 through 2015, he competed in the NASCAR XFINITY Series. He finished inside the Top 10 in championship standings in five of his six seasons. In 2016, Scott was signed by Richard Petty Motorsports to compete in his first full-season in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.-Breaking Limits

With 34 minute remaining in practice for the Goody's Fast Relief 500 at Martinsville Speedway, Brian Scott slapped the wall with the right rear of his car.

Scott is coming off a career-best finish of second last week at Talladega SuperSpeedway, but this sport will humble a person quickly. Scott finished 26th in the spring’s Martinsville race, which is his best result in 2016 on a short, flat track.

Brian Scott finished second in the Hellmann's 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway, which is his career best finish.

Scott came within one position of winning. Had he done so, he would have joined Chris Buescher at rookie winners when most experts touted Chase Elliott and Ryan Blaney to win in their freshman seasons. Scott’s previous-best result was a pair of 12th-place finishes last year at Kansas Speedway and this spring at Auto Club Speedway.

Brian Scott posted the second quickest 10-lap average in the first practice for the Hellmann's 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway behind Greg Biffle.

His 10-lap average of 194.855 mph came during his fourth through 13th laps on the track. That means Scott was running in the fastest drafting pack in the first practice session.

Brian Scott has failed to finish four of seven career races on restrictor-plate, superspeedways.

Scott also failed to advance from the 2015 Daytona 500 qualification race. He has not been terribly productive in the three races he finished either. A best finish of 24th came this February in the 500 and that is the only time on the big tracks that he completed all the laps. It is also the only race in which he did not sustain some crash damage.

Brian Scott has a best finish of 22nd on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks while driving for Richard Petty Motorsports. He would count the Bank of America 500 as a success if he could finish in the top 20

Scott’s average finish on this track type is 28.6. He knows how to get to the front half of the pack, however. Last year driving a partial schedule in the No. 33 with support from Richard Childress Racing, he scored three top-15s and a 22nd in four starts.

Brian Scott and Aric Almirola were the first two drivers outside of the top 24 cutoff for round two of qualification at New Hampshire Motor Speedway for the Bad Boy Off Road 300. Scott will start 25th with a lap of 132.966 mph; Almirola lines up 26th with a lap of 132.887 mph.

Richard Petty Motorsports has shown speed on short, flat tracks and they could be solid dark horse contenders with positive place-differential points.

Brian Scott has been running at the end of 11/12ths of the similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track races he has started. His only failure to finish came in the most recent event on this track type at Kentucky Speedway.

That result was disappointing because it came on the heels of four consecutive results in the 20s with a best in the No. 44 on this track type of 22nd at Kansas Speedway. Last year, Scott was incredibly strong on the similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks, however, with three top-15s in the No. 33 Richard Childress Racing supported entry.

Brian Scott made it through most of Darlington Raceway’s two practices cleanly. He earned his Darlington Stripe with about one minute remaining.

The good news is that Scott was finally venturing into the preferred groove. He ended final practice 30th on the speed chart, however, with a lap of 170.206 mph.

Brian Scott is heading the wrong direction on NASCAR’s Cup short tracks. He finished 22nd last fall at Richmond International Raceway, was 26th this spring at Martinsville Speedway, 30th at Bristol Motor Speedway, and 35th when the series returned to Richmond in April.

Equally bad, Scott has finished worse than he started in three of those four races to cost fantasy owners place-differential points. In the one event when he did not lose ground, he finished exactly where he started at Martinsville.
Aug 15 - 8:33 PM

From Pocono Raceway’s June event through the New Hampshire 301, Brian Scott finished in the 30s in six consecutive races. He has not set the world on fire in the past three events, but has arrested his slide to score three straight results in the mid-20s.

Equally important, Scott has added an average of six place-differential points to his total in those races. Watch him closely to see if the trend continues. If he finishes in the mid-20s at Bristol Motor Speedway next week, he might be worth picking up in salary cap games where his value has dropped.
