Brian Scott will drive the fourth entry of Richard Childress Racing in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season opener at Daytona.

Scott will be piloting the No. 29 Chevrolet SS for RCR in the Daytona 500 returning the car to competition for the first time since Kevin Harvick left the organizatoin at the end of the 2013 season.

Richard “Slugger” Labbe, who stepped down as crew chief for Paul Menard following the Charlotte race last October appears to be the favorite to crew chief Scott.

Scott finished 25th last season driving the No. 33 car of Circle Sport Racing. RCR and Circle Sport will share that ride in 2015 with Ty Dillon seeing action in the car for the Daytona 500.
