Rearview Mirror ... The Nationwide Children's Hospital 200 at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course was a race to remember, not only for Scott's third-place finish but for Patient Champion Avery Neely to be a part of the festivities. The Richard Childress Racing driver qualified in the third position and would take over the race lead on the first lap. For the next 32 laps, Scott would lead the field around the 2.258-mile road course. Scott continued to pick up positions as the laps wound down, ultimately crossing the finish line third.

How is Bristol different under the lights then when you race there in March?
"It's a lot different. The grip level changes. It seems like the groove changes a little bit. Tire wears are different. I'm looking forward to getting back to Bristol. I feel like, out of everywhere we've been this year, that was probably our worst performance. I felt like we weren't where we needed to be. So, this weekend we'll be trying new things. Racing under the lights at Bristol is always fun, it's just a neat place.

Do you prefer the outside lane?
"Always. It's tough to make up any ground on the bottom, it's tough to complete a pass. That's the frustrating part about Bristol. It seems like we go there and Goodyear always brings a hard tire that just makes it really difficult to grip up on the bottom. You're defaulted that you've got to go to the top to keep momentum up. It's frustrating when you're faster than somebody and you're trying to make it stick on the bottom and get the runs that you need to pass. The top seems to be where you want to be at Bristol."

Can Bristol be a mentally draining racetrack?
"Yeah, there isn't much of a straightaway to really catch your breath. That seems to make Bristol more challenging. You're on the straightaway's for like a second and then the corners for a couple seconds. It just doesn't give you much time. It doesn't give your body too much of a break, you're just constantly entering and exiting corners and that can make it challenging."
