Where is Brian? ... On Friday, Scott is scheduled to participate in a NASCAR Nationwide Series autograph session at Darlington Speedway in the fan midway in front of the Coca-Cola mobile stage from 1 to 2 p.m. ET.

Rearview Mirror ... Brian Scott and his No. 2 Shore Lodge Chevrolet Camaro qualified 13th for the 200-lap Nationwide Series O'Reilly Auto Parts 300 at Texas Motor Speedway. Scott was racing inside the top-10 within one lap after the initial green flag. Scott continued to fight through the field for the remainder of the race and collected a 12th-place finish. The finish secured Scott's seventh-place position in the driver point standings heading into Darlington Raceway this Friday night.

After the repaving at Darlington Raceway, it seems like it's getting its own character back. Do you feel that?
"Darlington has always been one of the most difficult tracks on the circuit for me. It's a tough place. Normally, I am able to practice really well there and have really good speed. Then, the race starts and it's just a struggle to race. I feel like it's a struggle to pass, it's a struggle to run side-by-side and it's a struggle to find out what you need in practice for the race. I do feel like the track is wearing out and I think that helps. I think when you have tires that fall off, it is going to make it easier to race it and pass cars. I really hope that's the case. It seems like it's been that way the last couple years. So, I hope to see some more tire wear come into play.

Is it true you have to race the track instead of racing the competition?
"I haven't figured out the right way to race there yet. I've gone in there thinking, I'm not going to worry about anybody. I don't know what the right thing to do is. The first thing you've got to do is have a fast car. I feel like track position at Darlington is the most crucial of anywhere we go. I feel like qualifying well and keeping your car up front is huge. I think a little is luck of the draw. You need the right lane on restarts. But, we'll see. If it wears out and tire wear comes into play, I think that could really change the dynamic of the race a lot."
