Weekend Statistics and Notes
Following a decent finish at Charlotte Motor Speedway last weekend, Brian Scott and the No. 44 GoBowling.com team are heading into the race weekend at Kansas Speedway with momentum and looking to keep that momentum going in the final stretch of the season. Scott got caught in a wreck last Sunday, but the team was able to fix the No. 44 Ford Fusion and keep Scott on the lead lap to bring home a 22nd-place finish. Scott also finished 22nd at the spring race in Kansas, after a speeding penalty forced the team to fight for position.
One of Scott's top finishes in his Sprint Cup Series career came at Kansas Speedway in 2015, finishing 12th. Scott tied that career-high finish this year at Auto Club Speedway in March and was on pace to have another top finish in the spring race at Kansas. In seven starts at Kansas Speedway in the XFINITY Series, Scott has one Top-10 and two Top-15 finishes. In the Camping World Truck Series, Scott has one Top-Five finish (third in 2009) and two Top-15 finishes.
Strike Ten Entertainment continues their partnership with Richard Petty Motorsports and the No. 44 team this weekend at Kansas Speedway, featuring the unique bowling-themed paint scheme on the Ford Fusion. GoBowling.com is in their third season as a partner with Richard Petty Motorsports and has also been featured on the No. 43 Ford Fusion with Aric Almirola.
Scott will be participating in a special Facebook Live on the GoBowling.com Facebook page, giving fans a tour of the No. 44 hauler at 11:15 a.m. CT on Saturday, October 15.

Scott Weekend Chatter
"I think Kansas is turning into one of the best racetracks we go to. It has a lot of speed, but the progressive banking is really serving its purpose. We've seen the last couple of races there where you can run a multitude of lines, and I think it's been great. It's been great for the racing, and it's been great from my perspective as a driver to move around, have opportunities to pass and not get stuck in one groove. We're still working hard to get our hands around this new aero package. We've had weekends where I think we've really hit it, and weekends where we have missed it. We had a decent weekend at Charlotte Motor Speedway last weekend, a track similar in size, shape and banking as Kansas, and I know we have some good notes from the spring race to bring with us and get some speed off the truck. I'm looking forward to going back to Kansas this weekend at an intermediate track and keeping our No. 44 Go Bowling Ford Fusion at the front."
