In addition to adding a new partner on the hood of the No. 44 Ford Fusion this weekend, Pocono Raceway will be a weekend of firsts for Brian Scott. Scott, who previously spent the past seven seasons competing full-time in the NASCAR XFINITY Series and on a partial schedule in the Camping World Truck Series, has only ever competed at Pocono Raceway in one ARCA race in 2008.

\r\nIn that start at the 2.5-mile “Tricky Triangle”, Scott started eighth and finished 20th. Scott will look to have his first Sprint Cup Series start and his first start with partner Medallion Financial with a unique yellow taxi paint scheme on the No. 44 Ford Fusion.\r\n\r\nHAMPTON, GA - SEPTEMBER 02: Denny Hamlin, driver of the #11 Sport Clips Toyota, heads towards the start/finish line to take the checkered flag and win the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series AdvoCare 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway on September 2, 2012 in Hampton, Georgia.

With three different bankings in each of the turns, you really have to take the track one turn at a time and work your way through the corners. Since I haven’t raced there since I competed in the ARCA series, we’re really going to be working hard through practice on Friday and Saturday to ensure we have speed off the truck and do everything we can to get a good finish in our No. 44 Medallion Financial Ford.”\r\n\r\n
