Nationwide Series driver Brian Scott will make his NASCAR Sprint Cup Series debut at Charlotte Motor Speedway on Saturday, October 12th driving for Richard Childress Racing. Family company Shore Lodge will sponsor his #33 Chevrolet for the Bank of America 500. Scott is excited for the opportunity.
"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 has made 135 career starts in the NASCAR Nationwide Series and has run the entire 2013 season for Richard Childress Racing. This season Scott sits seventh in the Nationwide Series point standings and has a best finish of second, which he's done twice. Richard Childress is excited to give Scott his first career Sprint Cup Series start.
"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," said Richard Childress, president and CEO of Richard Childress Racing. "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."
Scott will join teammates Kevin Harvick, Jeff Burton and Paul Menard at Charlotte. Scott will also run the Nationwide Series race that weekend.
