NASCAR Media Day 2009 -- Scott Speed

No. 82 Toyota, Red Bull Racing DRIVER: Scott Speed BORN: January 4, 1983 HOMETOWN: Manteca, Calif. CREW CHIEF: Jimmy Elledge 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.
