Scott, who joined Richard Petty Motorsports prior to this season, has a career- and season-best finish of second at Talladega Superspeedway. Scott tweeted that he made his decision in order to put his family life first.
In 51 career starts in NASCAR’s top series, Scott has eared one top-10 finish and has one career pole award, also coming at Talladega. He has two career wins in NASCAR’s Camping World Truck Series before he joined the Xfinity Series ranks.
Richard Petty Motorsports has not named Scott’s replacement in the No. 44 car.
