Scott started racing in 1998 in the Modified 4 at Cherokee Speedway because his father, Ed Childress, raced.  Scott grew up in a racing family.  His first win was in 1999 in the Modified 4 at Cherokee Speedway.  Career  highlights include 2002 NC, SC, GA, TN State Champion, 12 race winning streak in Modified 4, 35 wins out of 45 starts.

The thrill of racing for Scott is the competitiveness.  His most exciting racing moment was passing Scott Tessner (3) on the last lap to snatch the win.  He's most proud of becoming a champion just like his father.

Scott's racing hero is Jeff Gordon.

Of racing, Scott says, "It's the most competitive, adrenaline rushing and humbling sport there is.  It takes a great crew and a great driver, a great car and always a prayer before the green flag flies!".
