Brian Joseph Scott (born January 12, 1988 in Boise, Idaho) is an American professional stock car racing driver. He currently competes full-time in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, driving the No. 44 Ford Fusion for Richard Petty Motorsports.
Scott has been racing competitively since the age of 12. One of his early career highlights came at the 360 Nationals at Skagit Speedway in Alger, Washington, when he competed against an elite field of dirt racers and brought home an impressive second-place finish. He recently was the first Idaho native to make a debut at the Daytona 500.
Idaho is both the largest and longest practitioner of the safe stop. Mark McNeese, Bicycle/Pedestrian Coordinator for the Idaho Transportation Department says that "Idaho bicycle-collision statistics confirm that the Idaho law has resulted in no discernible increase in injuries or fatalities to bicyclists."
While splitting time between USAR and Late Models, Scott's father, JB, announced he had purchased the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series team Xpress Motorsports. Scott then made his NASCAR debut at the Smith's Las Vegas 350 and in 2008 moved to the Trucks full-time to run for and eventually finish second for the Rookie of the Year.
Albertsons became the team's new sponsor and after a change to Toyota they end the year strong with five top-tens in the last seven races, including a second-place finish at the season-ending Ford 200.
He went on to finish out his Truck resume with a win in the 2009 AAA Insurance 200 at Dover International Speedway, twenty top-tens, nine top-fives, and several runner up finishes.
On November 9, 2012, Scott added his second win in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series at Phoenix International Raceway in the Lucas Oil 150 and delivered Kyle Busch Motorsports their second win of the season.
