NASCAR Media Day 2009 -- Scott Speed

<b>No. 82 Toyota, Red Bull Racing</b>
<br/>DRIVER: Scott Speed
<br/>BORN: January 4, 1983
<br/>HOMETOWN: Manteca, Calif.
<br/>CREW CHIEF: Jimmy Elledge
<br/>NOTES: The former Formula One regular has been a darling of Red Bull Racing for years, and the team had no problem letting A.J. Allmendinger go to open up a spot for the brash Speed. Now it's time to see if his open-wheel skills can translate into NASCAR. The 26-year-old says he wants to avoid the drama, but given his temperament -- he put an opponent into the wall on purpose during an ARCA race last year -- who knows how long that will last. Will make only his sixth Cup start at Daytona.
