Brian Scott set to make Cup debut at Charlotte
WELCOME, N.C. (AP) - Brian Scott is set to make his Sprint Cup debut at the Oct. 12 race at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
He’ll drive the No. 33 Chevrolet for Richard Childress Racing. Shore Lodge will serve as the primary sponsor.
“I’m really looking forward to making my Sprint Cup Series debut at Charlotte Motor Speedway,” Scott said. “It’s something I’ve dreamed about since I got into racing. I really like the track and it will be really cool to do that in front of the NASCAR home crowd. It’s a great opportunity, I’m so thankful to everyone at Shore Lodge and Richard Childress Racing for putting this together and giving me the chance to compete against the greatest drivers in our sport.”
Scott will pull double duty at Charlotte. He’ll also drive in the Nationwide race at the track.
Scott joined the RCR Nationwide Series team in 2013 as driver of the No. 2 Chevrolet and is seventh in the series championship standings with one pole award, three top-five and 12 top-10 finishes. In his Nationwide Series career, Scott has earned two pole awards, eight top-five and 35 top-10 finishes. He has two Truck Series victories, along with 11 top-five and 23 top-10 finishes.
“Brian has been doing great with us this year in the Nationwide Series and it’s always good to see young talent coming up in our sport,” Childress said. “He’s shown a good feel for how to race our cars and that he’s qualified to try his hand in the Sprint Cup Series. We’re looking forward to having him in that race.”
