Tough Finish to a Strong Run for Brian Scott at Richmond International RacewayPress Release
On lap-11 Scott radioed to crew chief Phil Gould reporting he needed more rear grip. The evening’s first caution flew on lap 23, which allowed Scott to bring his No. 2 Camaro to the attention of his crew for four fresh tires, fuel and a chassis adjustment. He restarted 20th and quickly made his way back inside the top-10 as the field set into a lengthy green-flag run. The No. 2 team continued to make their Shore Lodge machine stronger as the race wore on.
On lap 211, Scott was collected in a multi-car incident that caused right rear damage to the No. 2 machine. The 25-year old Nationwide Series competitor restarted 20th and continued to make gains back towards the front of the field until he was spun by another competitor late in the race, relegating him to a 20th-place-finish.

BRIAN SCOTT QUOTE:
“We had a good car, but not a great car. We continued to make adjustments throughout the race and we were probably going to get top-10 out of the evening. We just needed a little bit more speed and continued trying to get it to roll through the corner. Unfortunately, myself and Austin (Dillon) got caught up in an incident with another competitor with about 50 laps to go. After that, we just tried to limp home and salvage what finish we could. Some more things happened and it was an unfortunate night, instead of seventh or eighth we finished 20th. We have to move on. We’re going to have days like this in the season. How you rebound is everything.”
