Longest Top-10 Streak in NASCAR ... Heading into this weekend's Royal Purple 300, Scott has the longest top-10 finishing streak (six) of any driver in NASCAR's top three touring series. The RCR driver has not finished outside the top-10 since Phoenix International Raceway last fall.

SoCal History ... The 25-year-old Chevrolet driver has five previous Nationwide Series starts at Auto Club Speedway. His best start of third came in August 2010, and best finish of fourth came one year ago in this event. He has one top five and two top-10 finishes, along with 100 percent laps completed.

Point Out the Points ... Coming off his fourth consecutive top-10 finish of 2013, Scott sits third in the Nationwide Series driver championship point standings. This marks his strongest start of a Nationwide Series season since his debut in 2009.

Whitetail Club: It's Time to Play and Live ... TheWhitetail Club will adorn the hood of Scott's Chevrolet Camaro this Saturday afternoon. Set on 1,300-acres of old-growth Ponderosa pine forests, grassy meadows, streams and trout ponds. Whitetail prides itself on a place for families to relax among friends and discover new forms of adventure. Whitetail comes with such amenities that include membership to Andy North golf course, athletic complex with indoor tennis courts, private fish and swim club, Nordic ski trails and ten miles of paved walking paths.

Can You Sign This? ... Scott will participate in the NASCAR Nationwide Series autograph session Friday afternoon at Auto Club Speedway following practice. Fans can meet the No. 2 Whitetail Club driver from 4:30 - 5:15pm.

Last Time Around ... One year ago, the 25-year-old Nationwide Series regular started the 150-lap event from the seventh spot and brought home a fourth-place-finish at the two-mile-speedway, earning his first top-five finish of 2012.

How is it racing at Auto Club Speedway?
"Fontana has been a good racetrack for me. It's big and slick; it's one of those tracks where you really need to slip between the seams, because they'll really affect your tires. It's really similar to Chicagoland Speedway, both tracks I've had really strong success by finishing inside the top five. There are multiple grooves to run through the corner with the ability to pass. As a driver, you have to be really disciplined because it's such a challenging track as you slip around from lap-to-lap.

How do you determine which line to run through in the corner at Auto Club Speedway?
"It's a mixed bag in choosing your lane. One, where you have comfort. Two, where your car runs well. Three, run where your competitors don't. I've always been the type to make speed on the high side. I've always been able to make my car better in the high line and have the ability to pass people. You have to work around and try it. Once it's hot and slick, not too many people run the bottom because you have to cross too many seams. As tires get older it really hurts the handling in the corner."
