Brian Scott will be making his final NASCAR career start this weekend, after announcing his retirement prior to the race weekend at Phoenix International Raceway. Scott's final start will come at the season-ending race at Homestead-Miami Speedway, in just his second start at the 1.5-mile oval in the Sprint Cup Series. Scott will retire from NASCAR racing following Sunday's race at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
Scott has one start in the Sprint Cup Series at Homestead, finishing 28th. However, he found success in the XFINITY Series, with six starts and four Top-10 finishes. Scott finished as high as fourth last year in the final race of the NASCAR XFINITY Series. He also has three starts and three Top-15 finishes in the Truck Series, finishing as high as second in 2008.

"I'm so grateful to have had the opportunity to drive for Richard Petty Motorsports this season, and I'm looking forward to ending the year on a high note at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Homestead is so unique in that it's a true oval and doesn't have a dogleg, so you really have to make a good turn getting into all four of the corners. I've had a lot of success in the XFINITY and Truck Series at Homestead, so I know if we've got speed off the truck that we will have a good chance at getting our No. 44 Safeway Ford to the front of the field."
