Brian Scott and the No. 33 Shore Lodge Chevrolet qualified for the famed Jeff Kyle 400 at the Brickyard in the 36th position. The Boise, Idaho native began the 160-lap event under loose-handling conditions, but moved his way up six positions within 15 lap utilizing his track bar adjuster in the Chevrolet SS. Green-flag pit stops led the Shore Lodge team to pit road on lap 30 for four tires, fuel and a chassis adjustment. Scott was caught by the leader falling one lap down. The first caution flag was displayed on lap 44 for debris, which allowed the team to visit pit road for four fresh tires. Green-flag stops were in order for a second time and the No. 33 machine came in for four tires and fuel. Because of green-flag stops, Scott fell one additional lap to the leader. Scott took the wave around during the caution period on lap 91 to regain one lap. During the four tire stop on lap 106, there was an uncontrolled tire that left the pit stall, forcing the No. 33 to restart at the tail end of the field. Scott revisited pit road to top off on fuel and restarted 30th on lap 113. A flat tire led Scott to make contact with the wall on lap 120 bringing out the caution. The Shore Lodge team made multiple stops to fix the right-side damage. Scott also received damage with 13 laps to go and would cross the finish line in the 36th position, three laps down.

"I'm the most to blame and I didn't do my job this weekend. We have lots of areas to improve on and need to do better as a team moving forward. We'll get ready for Richmond."
