"A 20-year-old California NASCAR Late Model driver is doubling his success after he doubled his racing workload.
Two-time All-American Speedway champion Matt Scott of Sacramento, Calif., added a full-time schedule of racing at Stockton (Calif.) 99 Speedway this year. His results so far have been championship caliber.
Scott is in his fourth year of NASCAR Late Model racing, but was fast from the start. He won back-to-back championships in 2010-11 at All-American, a .333-mile paved oval in Roseville, Calif. He started his racing career there with a limited schedule in 2009 and won five features including a 100-lap special event.
This year he added a full-time effort at Stockton, a quarter-mile paved oval. Stockton and All-American are about 65 miles apart and both operate on Saturday nights. NASCAR Late Models alternate between the tracks where they are designated as NASCAR Finalist Division III.
“Before this year I raced only once at Stockton, back in 2010,” Scott said. “Unfortunately we wrecked really hard and had to replace the front and rear clips. We just focused on All-American Speedway until this year.”
Scott leads the Late Model points at All-American and is second in standings at Stockton. With an overall record of four wins, 11 top fives and 14 top 10s in 14 starts, Scott is fourth in NASCAR Finalist Division III asphalt track standings this week."
