Brian Scott has made six attempts on restrictor-plate, superspeedways, but only one of them was completely free from trouble. This spring at Daytona, he avoided damage and finished 24th.
In his five previous attempts, he was sidelined by crash damage twice, was running well off the pace once after crashing three times in the 2014 Daytona 500, failed to transfer from his Duel in 2015, and blew an engine at Talladega SuperSpeedway last spring. It is hard to recommend him for a fantasy roster in this week’s Geico 500. Apr 26 - 1:06 PM

Brian Scott will aim for his first top-25 of the similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track season this week. In two previous attempts on the course type, he finished 31st at Atlanta Motor Speedway and 27th at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Last year, Scott ended the season with a pair of top-15s on the so-called "cookie-cutter" tracks in a Richard Childress Racing supported No. 33. He has the skill to finish that well again, but Richard Petty Motorsports might not quite have the same resources at their disposal.

Brian Scott has been the second-highest finishing rookie twice so far in five races this season. Last week his 12th at Auto Club was second to Chase Elliott’s sixth and his 24th in the Daytona 500 was second to Ryan Blaney’s 19th.

Scott is not performing badly by freshman standards and that needs to factor into his handicap most weeks. He will continue to be less expensive than his classmates and could be a good value as a result.

After battling a tough handling Ford Fusion for 500 miles at Atlanta Motor Speedway last weekend, Brian Scott and the No. 44 Albertsons/White Tail team are looking forward - and west - to the 1.5-mile track at Las Vegas Motor Speedway this weekend.

Scott has impressive statistics throughout his XFINITY Series and Sprint Cup Series career at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. In six races in the XFINITY Series, he has three Top-15 finishes, his highest finish seventh in the 2014 race, and started in the Top-10 for five of the six races. In the Sprint Cup Series in 2015, Scott earned a 13th-place finish.-Breaking Limits

Brian Scott was the only Rookie of the Year contender at Atlanta Motor Speedway to make it to the final round of qualification. He posted a lap of 188.591 mph and will start the Folds of Honor Quicktrip 500 from 11th.

Scott is serving notice that 2016 will not simply be a battle between Ryan Blaney and Chase Elliott for Rookie honors. Blaney qualified 24th with Elliott in 25th.

Brian Scott will aim to score a fourth top-15 in his last five races on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks this week. Last year, he finished 13th at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, 12th at Kansas Speedway, and 14th at Texas Motor Speedway.

The Kansas and Texas top-15s came during the fall in the No. 33 of Joe Falk with support from Richard Childress Racing. He should be in equally strong Richard Petty Motorsports equipment this week and could be the best sleeper in the field.

Brian Scott spun on the final lap of his Can Am 150 Duel at Daytona. He spun off the final turn in a single-lap incident and did significant damage to the nose of his car.

Scott may need to roll out a backup, but he has a guaranteed start as a charter driver and would line up near the back in any event.

Brian Scott has made five previous attempts on NASCAR’s restrictor-plate, superspeedways and among the drivers entered for this year’s Daytona 500 he has the worst average finish of 39.2.

This average includes one failure to advance into last year’s 500 and he has finished only one of his four starts. As long as he stays out of trouble in this qualification race, he should easily be able to beat his average and could be a decent value.

Richard Petty Motorsports announced today that Albertsons Companies and Shore Lodge will partner with the No. 44 team and driver Brian Scott.

Scott, an Idaho native, will be making his team debut in February's season opener Daytona 500 and will compete for Rookie of the Year. Albertsons Companies and Shore Lodge, both Idaho-based companies, will adorn the hood of the No. 44 Ford for 16 races and have associate placement for the remaining 20 races.-Breaking Limits

Beginning in 2016, a tradition is returning to the Petty family and Richard Petty Motorsports (RPM). RPM will once again field the number "44", replacing the number "9" used since RPM was created after a merge in 2009.

Kyle Petty raced the No. 42 for Petty Enterprises from 1979-1982. He raced the No. 44 for pe2/Petty Enterprises from 1997-2000. He won his first ARCA race in 1979 at Daytona in the No. 44 for Petty Enterprises. Maurice "Chief" Petty (Richard's brother) raced the No. 41, 42, 43 and 44 in select races from 1960-1964. Said Richard Petty: "After the 2015 season, we had an opportunity to make some changes and get the No. 44 back. We felt that it was good timing. We really wanted to get that number back in the Petty family where it really belongs. Brian (Scott) is coming on board, and he really hasn't had a number in the Sprint Cup Series. Everything has just come together to really bring back a Petty tradition."-Breaking Limits

Chris Heroy will assume the role of crew chief for the No. 9 team and Brian Scott effective immediately, according to NBC’s Dan Beaver. He moves over to that organization after shepherding Kyle Larson through his first two seasons.

Scott scored three top-15s in 10 starts last season and with Heroy’s assistance, he should be able to get at least that many top-10s in 2016. The Rookie of the Year battle is going to be much more heated this season than last.

Richard Petty Motorsports made it official in a Friday press conference: Brian Scott will pilot the No. 9 Richard Petty Motorsports Ford in 2015.

Previous driver Sam Hornish Jr. scored three top-10s in this car and all of those strong runs came on specialty tracks. He was 10th at Sonoma Raceway, ninth at Watkins Glen International, and sixth at Talladega SuperSpeedway. Scott will probably struggle to finish that well in his fulltime debut season, but he will be modestly priced at the beginning of the year as a rookie contender.

Brian Scott will be named as the driver of the No. 9 later this week, according to Motorsport.com. A spokesman for the company refused to confirm the report, however.

Scott was the shining star in the No. 33 collaborative effort of Richard Childress Racing and Joe Falk in 2015. In solid equipment, he should challenge for top-15s most weekends and should be handicapped at about 80 percent of new teammate Aric Almirola.

BJ McLeod’s single chance to race in 2015 came at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in the Sylvania 300. He started 39th in that race and finished 34th. The No. 33 was driven by a variety of racers, including Brian Scott.

A 34th-place finish means that he beat out 21 percent of the field, which is no small feat in current-day NASCAR. McLeod also earned five place-differential points in games that offered them.

Brian Scott turned out to be Circle Sports Ace in the Hole on several occasions in 2015. He scored three top-15s and another pair of 22nd-place results in 10 starts.

Scott’s best result came in October’s Hollywood Casino 400 at Kansas Speedway when he crossed under the checkers 12th. He also scored a 14th in his next and final ride at Texas Motor Speedway, which made him a predictably strong value. However, Scott qualified better than he finished most often and had the seventh-worst place-differential of -4.82.
