Scott to retire from NASCAR
NASCAR driver Brian Scott plans to retire after next week’s season finale to spend more time with his family.
Scott is 28 and has been racing at NASCAR’s national level since 2007. He has two young children.
Albertsons Companies, Scott’s longtime sponsor, said it would terminate its NASCAR program after the season.
However, Richard Petty Motorsports plans to field the No. 44 that Scott drove with a new sponsor and another driver.
Scott posted a statement about his decision on several social media platforms and explained the Sprint Cup schedule “has taken its toll” and caused him “to re-evaluate what I want in life for myself and for my family.”
