Last month, Jayski.com reported that NASCAR Sprint Cup veteran Riggs had an opportunity to work as a driver coach for Danica Patrick and/or serve as a test driver for Stewart-Haas Racing, along with a limited schedule in a fourth Stewart-Haas car, pending sponsorship. When contacted about Riggs, spokesperson Mike Arning on Thursday said via email, “Scott Riggs has no official role with Stewart-Haas Racing. However, the team utilizes him for tests as needed.” Riggs, who tested for Stewart-Haas at Talladega in 2011, drove full-time for Haas-CNC Racing in 2008, the year before the team morphed into Stewart-Haas Racing with the arrival of Tony Stewart. In 2012, Riggs ran the start-and-park Cup car for R3 Motorsports and finished fifth in the fall Truck Series race at Martinsville for Ricky Benton Racing in a one-race deal.
