2014 Las Vegas: Brian Scott NASCAR Nationwide Race Preview

This Week's Whitetail Chevrolet at Las Vegas Motor Speedway ... After missing the pole position by nearly two one thousands of a second last weekend at Phoenix International Raceway, Brian Scott and his No. 2 Whitetail Chevrolet Camaro will once again race chassis No. 110 this weekend at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. This chassis has finished 14th or better in the seven previous races it has been utilized. Scott earned an eighth-place finish at Auto Club Speedway last March.

Sin City Stats ... Scott will be making his fifth NASCAR Nationwide Series start this weekend in the Boyd Gaming 300. In four previous starts, Scott has an average start of seventh and an average finish of 22nd. Scott captured his best starting position, third, and best finishing position, ninth, last season in his Richard Childress Racing Camaro. Scott also has three NASCAR Camping World Truck Series starts at the 1.5-mile speedway.

Did you know? ... The Whitetail Club will shine on the hood of the No. 2 Chevrolet Camaro on Saturday afternoon. Whitetail was the primary partner during Scott's NASCAR Sprint Cup series Daytona 500 debut at Daytona International Speedway and at Phoenix International Raceway last weekend. The bright orange, white and black scheme will support the McCall, Idaho living community on Payette Lake, just two hours north of Boise, Idaho for the 200-lap event.

Don't Miss Your Chance to Meet the RCR Drivers ... Brian Scott, Brendan Gaughan, Ty Dillon, Austin Dillon and Ryan Newman will be holding an hour long autograph session from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the South Point Hotel & Casino. Come out for your chance to meet the RCR drivers.

Rearview Mirror ... Brian Scott qualified on the outside pole for the NASCAR Nationwide Series Blue Jeans Go Green 200 at Phoenix International Raceway missing the top speed by only two one thousands of a second. The field was brought down pit road on lap 167 for an accident on the back stretch in addition to rain that started to dampen the asphalt surface. It continued to fall ending the NNS race, despite a valiant effort by NASCAR and the track crews to dry the surface. The 11th-place finish movec Scott up three positions in the driver point standings to eighth heading into Saturday's NNS race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Las Vegas Motor Speedway is the first 1.5-mile track of the season. How do you feel about your Whitetail Chevrolet?
"I think Las Vegas will really show us who worked the hardest in the off-season. The 1.5-mile program is the most important race type on the Nationwide schedule. They are the majority of our races. Normally, whoever can dominate and control the 1.5-mile track, they have the best chance of going on to be a champion. Each year you see different teams stepping up to the plate. We didn't have this program with our Camaro last year with the new nose style figured out quite right. I think we learned a lot through the year. The guys worked really hard on all aspects of our 1.5-mile program during the off-season and I really hope everyone is chasing RCR when we get to the 1.5-mile tracks."

Is Las Vegas one of your favorite tracks on the tour?
"Yes. I would say Phoenix and Las Vegas are two of my favorite cities. They are close to my home state of Idaho, so I have a lot of family and friends that come out. There are a lot of areas we travel to during the NASCAR season that I really enjoy; even some of the more low-key places like Road America. I think New Hampshire is beautiful. City wise, everybody loves to go to Las Vegas. I like gambling, I like playing Black Jack, but I don't gamble a lot of money."
