With track position playing a major role at the 7/8-mile track, the 26-year-old driver battled inside the top-10 for the majority of the 250-lap event. With three laps to go on the final restart, Scott got shuffled into the seventh position where he would ultimately cross the finish line.

What kind of road racer are you?
"I feel like I'm a good road racer. At Road America we ran upfront. I had my first experience racing on a road course in the rain. We were running second and unfortunately, the late race caution extended the race a little bit and it put us out of our fuel window and lost all our track position. But, our performance was really good both in the dry and in the rain at Road America, so I am excited to get back to a road course like Watkins Glen. I feel like we are capable of running up front and having a good performance."

Is Watkins Glen the speedway of Road Courses?
"I think it is. Everything is just a fast turn. It's all about keeping your speed up and not as technical as a place like Mid-Ohio for instance where we go next week. It's fun and it's always a big challenge. You get a lot of Cup guys who double dip and come and race in the Nationwide Series. The days of old where you used to really have to beat the road-course ringers are gone, all the stock car drivers are pretty good road racers now. It's hard to get an advantage. The competition level is going to be really high at Watkins Glen. I feel like it will be the fastest of the road courses we go to and yes, superspeedway like."

How difficult is the bus stop?
"It can get interesting. I don't think it's a difficult corner, but it always has a tendency of things happening there. If you're behind someone that gets in the grass, your grill gets covered in grass. Sometimes people get loose or sideways through there. It's always an exciting corner. There is always something going on there. But as far as difficulty, I don't think it's a challenging corner."
