2004 PASS Race 6 -
Forbes Chev-Olds 200
at Scotia Speedworld on 6/26

Skies were threatening all day long, but the 200 lapper at Scotia Speedworld in Halifax, Nova Scotia did make the full distance and featured some fierce, clean racing.

Scott posted the ninth quickest lap in time trials and drew third spot for the Dash. After a tough fight with Larry Gelinas in the #37, the #83 finished the Dash in fifth place.

The team played with setting, tire pressures, and stagger to try to get some grip but the car never was any better than fair.

In the at the lap 73 yellow, Scott came in for fresh tires but found no improvement. Running in seventh and eighth during the long stretch in the center of the race, the #84 drifted out wide on the back stretch and hit the wall hard enough that Scott called in to the crew that he might have hurt his ribs. The car hit squarely so the body damage was not so bad, but the exhaust was knocked back and exhaust fumes started to swirl around the driver compartment. About seven laps from the end, a charging Ben Rowe put Scott one lap down.

The #84 finished in eighth, the first car one lap down - which was not bad considering it never really got hooked up and how hard the hit on the back straight wall had been.
