Just when you wondered what Scott was up to lately, comes an article submitted by WonkyDave from the Kansas City Star.

Seems Scott is finding the humble side of NASCAR quite refreshing after all those posh hotels, casino’s and champagne.

“I’m not worried about ego, man,” he said. “I’d race a golf cart if I had to.”

Keep it up Scott and that’s exactly what you will be racing.

Just curious, but am I missing something in this article? I know Speed has his moments but if anything the article screamed “preconceived notion” on the part of the author. The entire article can be summed up as “Holy cow, this kid’s not the total douchebag I expected him to be.” And there’s been nothing in his career so far that indicates he’s going to fail in stock cars, he’s actually done better than most rookies.

Truth be known, Mr. Hurt, I actually don’t hate Scott. He has the potential to be a good (but not great) driver. The hating comes from Bob Varsha using Scott as a rectal probe on every F1 fan during every broadcast in the US last year. I got sick of hearing his name.

However, when I opened up my local paper (yes, I live in the middle of nothing) and saw Scott’s face on the front page of the sports section and read some rather hilarious quotes, I had to share.

Why, yes. I do believe you’re correct. But let me ask Varsha for a confirmation.

i honestly didn’t find anything objectionable in the story. he didn’t sound bitter, he wasn’t complaining about being kicked out of F1 or anything like that. he seems pretty content. let him do his thing you know.
