Brian Scott “evaluating” what is next

November 13, 2016

AVONDALE, Ariz.—Brian Scott will vacate the No. 44 at season’s end in the Sprint Cup Series, retiring from full-time competition, but what’s next for the 28-year-old driver?

“I don’t know,” Scott said to The Racing Experts, adding “Evaluating all that now.”

Scott, in his first full-time season in the Sprint Cup Series, indicated the decision to stop racing full-time wasn’t one he made on his own.

“We started talking about it as a family, praying about it in the summer, probably when summer started,” he said.

In 51 starts in the Sprint Cup Series, Scott has finished inside the top-ten once; his runner-up effort at Talladega in October this season.

Scott talked about the likelihood of getting behind-the-wheel of a stock car in any of NASCAR’s top-three touring series after 2016.

“I would do it,” he said. “I wouldn’t be opposed to doing some Truck stuff or some XFINTIY stuff, not necessarily on a full-time schedule or anything that took as many weekends as XFINITY and Cup certainly do, but if I did it, it’d just be for fun.”

Will Brian Scott compete in a NASCAR-sanctioned event in 2017?
