The Vest Project Part 19-HScott Motorsports Part 1

[Editor’s note: I am on vacation until the end of July, normal operations will resume then.]

By David G. Firestone

Harry Scott Jr. purchased the Phoenix Racing Sprint Cup Series in late 2013. He renamed the team HScott Motorsports. HScott Motorsports raced from 2013 to 2016, with Justin Allgaier, Kyle Larson, Michael McDowell, Ryan Truex, Bobby Labonte, Michael Annett, and Clint Bowyer as drivers. The team didn’t have that much success on track.

When the team was purchased, Scott ran Finch’s #51 and kept a few of the sponsors, including Springfield Illinois based Brandt Agriculture. In 2014 and 2015, Justin Allgaier raced the Brandt sponsored #51 Chevy SS. The team had a few top 10’s that year. During that time, one pit crew member wore this vest. The vest shows light use.The red collar is unadorned.The cowl has a SIMPSON MTO 24 tag and an XXXL tag present.The right chest features a NASCAR SPRINT CUP SERIES and a GOODYEAR logo embroidered.The left chest features a HSCOTT MOTORSPORTS logo and a Chevy bow tie logo embroidered into it.The front torso features a BRANDT PROFESSIONAL AGRICULTURE logo embroidered, and a classic racing stripe.Inside the front zipper is the Simpson warranty label.The hems don’t have comfort straps, but the right side does have the SFI rating. The shoulder epaulets don’t have adornment on the top, but have SIMPSON logos on the sides. There are standard arm holes present. The back of the vest doesn’t show any real wear.The back of the neck has 51 embroidered into it.The back of the suit has BRANDT.CA, a BRANDT PROFESSIONAL AGRICULTURE logo embroidered into it.HScott Motorsports was a team that liked the three-piece pit crew uniforms, another one of which we will examine next week.
