NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Brian Scott announced Thursday his plans to retire from full-time racing and focus on his family life.

Scott tweeted his decision Wednesday, saying it was a personal decision to step aside from racing and put his family first.

Scott joined Richard Petty Motorsports before the 2016 season, which was his first full-time campaign at NASCAR's top level. In 34 starts in RPM's No. 44, he has a season-best finish of second at Talladega. He has 51 career starts in the Cup Series, with one career pole award. He has two career victories in NASCAR’s Camping World Truck Series.

Richard Petty Motorsports has not named Scott’s replacement.
