Event Preview Fact Sheet

This Week’s Shore Lodge Chevrolet at Darlington Raceway … Brian Scott will pilot chassis No. 126 from the Richard Childress Racing NASCAR Nationwide Series stable in Friday evening’s VFW Sport Clips Help a Hero 200. This chassis was utilized earlier this season at Texas Motor Speedway where Scott started 20th and earned an 11th-place finish.

History with the “Lady in Black” … The 25-year-old Chevrolet driver has four previous Nationwide Series starts at Darlington Raceway, where he has one top-10 finish (seventh in 2012) to his credit.

Point Out the Points … After eight races in the 2013 season, Scott is currently seventh in the Nationwide Series driver championship point standings, 51 markers out of first.

Best Career Start … After the first eight Nationwide Series events of 2013, Scott is experiencing the strongest start to a season in his career. The Boise, Idaho native boasts five top-10 finishes, 10 laps led, and average finishing spot of 12.8.

Lodging in Idaho … Shore Lodge will serve as primary sponsor for Scott and the No. 2 team this Friday night at Darlington Raceway. Set on the southern shore of Payette Lake in McCall, Idaho, four seasons of adventure await at this idyllic location. A family favorite since 1948, the travel destination allows guests to enjoy the spectacular views, friendly service and generous accommodations at the lake front resort. Shore Lodge serves as the perfect mixture of adventure and luxury featuring 26 spa adventures, fitness studio, golf privileges at Whitetail Club, jet skiing, and a private beach for guests.

Last Time at the track “Too Tough to Tame” … One year ago, the 25-year-old Nationwide Series regular started the 147-lap event from his best starting spot, seventh, and brought home his best finishing position, seventh, at the 1.366-mile speedway.

BRIAN SCOTT QUOTES:

What have your experiences been at Darlington Raceway?

“Darlington has always been a challenging place for me; I’m cautious about heading there with high expectations. My goal would be to come away with a top-10 and a solid finish in the point standings. It’s a place where track position is really important. I came home with a top-10 there last year, so I know I’m capable of good runs. If we get out front late in the race, I’ll feel a lot better about it.”
