Brian Scott joins Richard Childress Racing

   Richard Childress Racing announced Thursday that driver Brain Scott had signed a multi-year contract with the organization and will drive the No. 2 Chevrolet in the 2013 NASCAR Nationwide Season.

   Scott most recently drove for Joe Gibbs Racing. Last season, he finished with two top-five and 11 top-10 finishes and finished ninth in points.

   Phil Gould, car chief for the No. 2 team in 2012 at RCR and previously a car chief in the Sprint Cup series, has been promoted to crew chief for the team.

   "RCR has proven over the past 13 years that it can build and prepare winning cars in the NASCAR Nationwide Series and has for a variety of drivers," Scott said. "I just want to be the next name on that list.

   "RCR has a rich tradition of winning races and championships at the highest level of our sport and I am excited about being a part of an organization, like theirs, that is committed to winning.”

   Scott replaces Elliott Sadler in the No. 2, who has moved to JGR for the 2013 season.


  1. Jim, any word on when RCR is going to make it official and announce that Austin Dillon is going to drive the 3 in Sprint Cup?

  2. I wouldn't expect an official announcement until next season. - Jim
