— Brian Scott will get his first chance on NASCAR's highest level next month.

Scott, a 25-year-old Boise High graduate, will make his NASCAR Sprint Cup Series debut at Charlotte Motor Speedway on Sat., Oct. 12 in the Bank of America 500.

"I'm really looking forward to making my Sprint Cup Series debut at Charlotte Motor Speedway," Scott said in a statement released by his team, Richard Childress Racing. "It's something I've dreamed about since I got into racing. I really like the track and it will be really cool to do that in front of the NASCAR home crowd. It's a great opportunity, I'm so thankful to everyone at Shore Lodge and Richard Childress Racing for putting this together and giving me the chance to compete against the greatest drivers in our sport."

McCall's Shore Lodge will serve as the primary sponsor on Scott's No. 33 Chevrolet.

Scott is seventh in points on the Nationwide Series. He has three top-five and 12 top-10 finishes this season. He will race in the Nationwide event (the Dollar General 300) at Charlotte Motor Speedway on the night before his Sprint Cup debut.

"Brian has been doing great with us this year in the Nationwide Series and it's always good to see young talent coming up in our sport," said Richard Childress, president and CEO of Richard Childress Racing. "He's shown a good feel for how to race our cars and that he's qualified to try his hand in the Sprint Cup Series. We're looking forward to having him in that race."
