Brian Scott qualified seventh for the NASCAR Nationwide Series season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway on Saturday – his final race with Joe Gibbs Racing. Scott’s No. 11 Dollar General Camry started out loose, but progressively tightened up throughout the 200 lap race. The team made their first pit stop of the night under green flag conditions on lap 48. When green flag stops cycled through, Scott was running in sixth. The first of five caution flags came out on lap 65. After another four-tire stop, the Dollar General Toyota restarted ninth on lap 70. Another caution came out on lap 94. Scott reported that the handling of his car had balanced out, so crew chief Kevin Kidd elected to bring the No. 11 DG Camry in for fuel only. Scott was sixth for the restart on lap 99. Without new tires, the Dollar General Toyota fell back to 12th. Kidd brought Scott in under green flag conditions on lap 148 for four Goodyears, fuel and a track bar adjustment. The next yellow flag fell on lap 173. The No. 11 team made their final stop of the night and gained two spots on pit road placing Scott ninth for the restart on lap 178. Through two more restarts, Scott moved up to seventh for the finish capturing his 11th top-10 finish of the 2012 season. The 24-year-old driver closed out the year placing ninth in the NASCAR Nationwide Series Championship point standings. In recognition of Scott’s top-10 finish at Homestead-Miami Speedway, Dollar General is offering a 10 percent discount on all online purchases on Monday.

This track is so worn out that you have to manage your tires. It’s old school racing. It’s really hard to pass people when you have old tires because the preferred groove is on the outside at Homestead. We had a great Dollar General Camry tonight, though. I feel like track position was the only thing that kept us from being able to go up front and challenge for the lead. The guys did a great job all year. It was a lot of fun to end on a real racey track, as fast as we were, and challenge those guys that were racing for a championship. I felt like we were competitive enough to get our Toyota Camry up there and challenge for the win, if we just could’ve had a couple of good restarts and gained some track position.” “I can’t rave enough about Joe Gibbs Racing. They provided me with a great opportunity for two years and put really competitive cars under us. I regret that I wasn’t able to get them in victory lane while I was there. I learned a lot. This was just a stepping stone in my career and I’m going to grow over the next couple of years as well. Joe Gibbs Racing was a great place that nurtured my talents and progressed them forward. I’m thankful for everything the organization has done for me and have a great appreciation for having a dedicated sponsor like Dollar General this year.”
