Scott Pruett is recognized as one of the top road course drivers in racing today and has had great success at The Glen. He is a regular on the Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series, currently shares the over points lead with teammate Memo Rojas and teamed with Dario Franchitti, Juan Pablo Montoya and Rojas to win the 24 Hours of Daytona earlier this year. Pruett's success at The Glen includes victories in the 2004 Sahlen's Six Hours of The Glen and 2006 Crown Royal 200 during the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series at The Glen weekend. He also has four Top-10 finishes in the last six years at The Glen as a driver in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series including a runner-up finish in 2003. In 2007, Pruett competed in both Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series races at The Glen as well as the Zippo 200 NASCAR Nationwide Series race. He currently drives the No. 01 TELMEX Lexus Riley for Chip Ganassi Racing with co-driver Rojas. Fans can expect to see both drivers in the Sahlen's Six Hours of The Glen, June 6-8, and the Crown Royal 200 during the Centurion Boats at The Glen weekend, August 7-10.
Pruett is also an accomplished author. Along with his wife Judy, Pruett has written four children's books with his most recent, Racing Through the Alphabet, being just released at the beginning of June. The new book provides a fun learning experience for children and adults through the use of racing terminology, detailed and colorful illustrations, and an added alphabet bar to assist in learning the orientation of each letter within the alphabet.
