Without sponsors, there
would be no racing,
and without family,
Brian Scott would have
different sponsors. That’s
because when it comes
to primary sponsors,
Scott keeps it mostly in
His father, Joe, is the owner of the Shore
Lodge and Whitetail Club resorts in McCall, Idaho.
Brian Scott is also the great-grandson of Joe and
Kathryn Albertson, the founders of the Albertsons
enterprise – one of the largest food and drug
retailers in the United States. The two family-run
companies have sponsored Scott for much of his
racing career, going all the way back to his days in
the Camping World Truck Series.
This year, Scott’s first full season in the NASCAR
Sprint Cup Series, the 28-year-old native of Boise,
Idaho, has both his father’s company and his great-grandfather’s company as primary backers on his
No. 44 Richard Petty Motorsports Ford.
Both are major enterprises. Albertsons operates
more than 2,276 stores across 35 states and the
District of Columbia.
Shore Lodge, which opened for business in 1948,
is billed as the quintessential lodging experience.
“It is our privilege to be a part of the Richard
Petty Motorsports team and to support Brian in his
first full season, [starting with the] Daytona 500,”
said Dan Scott, president and general manager of
Shore Lodge and Whitetail Club.”
In addition to his bloodlines, Brian Scott is a
family man by way of marriage. He and former
fiancée Whitney Kay exchanged wedding vows in
the NASCAR offseason of 2014–2015 at Shore
Lodge. During that ceremony, Brian spoke directly to
Whitney’s young daughter, Brielle, promising to show
her how a woman should be treated through his
relationship with her mom. Brian and Whitney have a
son, Joseph, who was born in November 2014.
