Richard Childress Racing announced Thursday that Brain Scott will drive the No. 2 Chevrolet for the 2013 NASCAR Nationwide Season. Scott most recently drove for Joe Gibbs Racing. Last season he scored two top five and 11 top ten finishes for JGR.

Scott finished eighth in 2011 NASCAR Nationwide championship standings and ninth this past year. He finished 14th and was runner-up in the series’ rookie of the year standings in 2010. Phil Gould, car chief for the No. 2 team in 2012 and with previous experience at RCR as a car chief in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, has been promoted to crew chief for the team.

“I am thrilled to have this opportunity to drive the No. 2 Shore Lodge Chevrolet for Richard Childress Racing in the Nationwide Series,” said Scott. MORE>>>
