Brian Scott drove to his second career top-10 finish at Bristol Motor Speedway in Saturday afternoon’s NASCAR Nationwide Series event, after battling a tight-handling condition for a portion of the race. The 25-year-old competitor took the green flag from the eighth position and remained inside the top 10 for the first part of the 300-lap affair.

Scott drove down pit road on lap 104 so the Phil Gould-led pit crew could change four tires, add fuel and make chassis adjustments during a caution period. Back under green, the Boise, Idaho, native reported that the adjustments helped his Shore Lodge Chevrolet Camaro though the corner of the track.

With 34 laps remaining, the field was slowed for an eighth time. Scott remained on track during the yellow-flag laps, restarted in the sixth position and quickly moved up to fourth on the restart. With 11 laps remaining, he was pinched into the outside wall causing slight damage that affected the car’s handling and relegated him to a 10th-place-finish.

Start – 8

Finish – 10

Laps Led - 0

Points - 3

BRIAN SCOTT QUOTE:

“We had a good car and track position in the end when we needed it. We had every possibility of coming home with a top-five-finish, just got into the wall after making contact with one of our teammates. After that we were just a little too tight, but it’s another top-10 and it’s Bristol (Motor Speedway) where anything could happen. I’ll take a top-10 out of Bristol any day. I’m really excited about California (Auto Club Speedway) next week. I feel like it’s a great track, we’ll go there and get the top-five that eluded us today.”
