Brian Scott will make his NASCAR Sprint Cup debut next month at Charlotte Motor Speedway, Richard Childress Racing announced Tuesday.

Scott, who ranks seventh in the Nationwide point standings, will drive the No. 33 car at Charlotte.  Shore Lodge will be the sponsor.

The 25-year-old Scott has made 136 career Nationwide starts with no wins, eight top-five finishes and 35 top-10 results.  He has a career-high three top-five finishes and 12 top-10 results this season.

"It's something I've dreamed about since I got into racing," Scott said in a release issued by the team.  "I like the track and it will be really cool to do that in front of the NASCAR home crowd."

Scott also will compete in the Nationwide event at Charlotte that weekend.

"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.  "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."
