Scott Speed Driver Diary: An “Unlucky, Good” Day in California & Charging Towards the Top 35

This past weekend’s race at Fontana was one of our better runs this year. Although it may not have always looked like it, we actually ran really well almost the entire race. We started out kind of slow, but then it came around. We just got unlucky because we were running around 21st and we …

Scott Speed Driver Diary: Overcoming Diversity, Turning the Corner & Family Support

The last time I wrote in before the Daytona 500, I mentioned how I believed that I had met my “wreck quota” after getting swept up in about three different accidents during Speedweeks.

Scott Speed Driver Diary: Snowboarding, Speedweeks & the Organ Donor 200!

Well the offseason is finally over and it’s time to get back to racing. To tell you the truth, I really didn’t do all that much during my down time. Probably the most significant thing I did was go snowboarding. Right after Christmas, we all went to Snow Shoe for a few weeks. Most of …
