i was at road atlanta at the wera gnf, and spoke with scott about his plans for next season. he said he planned to race daytona for sure. along with several other select ama events. but he also told me there was more sponsorship money for him in europe.(sbk). i just don't know why he would'nt want to be closer to home. anyway, those words came straight out of his mouth. i'm a huge russell fan for years. i spoke with him just after he had whooped up on schwantz, mike smith, sadowski, and co. in the supermotard race, his words were" i'm back baby"! kick some ass scott.
