BRIAN SCOTT QUOTE:
You have to be looking forward to Chicagoland Speedway and running double-duty?
“Yes. Chicagoland Speedway is a great race track for me, so I am looking forward to trying it in the Sprint Cup Series car and hopefully having good results there. With Chicago being the first race for the Chase, I feel like the competition level will be turned up and you have to be cognizant of the people in the championship and try not to dictate the outcome or ruin any of their days.”
