Official Online Home of Austin Scott and the Excess Racing Team

Excess Racing is owned and operated by father-son tandem Lee and Austin Scott in Wapakoneta, OH. The Scott boys founded Excess Racing in July of 2015 with the purchase of a 1991 Honda Prelude, but the inspiration of the team dates back seven years prior. In 2008, twelve year old Austin wrote a letter to Lee pleading for help in a buying a race car immediately. After reading through his son’s passionate note, Lee made a promise. If Austin worked hard and saved his money, Lee gave his word that they would start a race team. Fast forward to 2015 and Excess Racing scores its first top five finish just four races after its inception. Seven races later, the team is pulling into ‘Victory Lane’ at the Montpelier Motor Speedway in Indiana. That’s not too bad for a duo with zero years of combined racing experience coming into the summer of 2015.
Excess Racing prides itself in being the most fan accessible team in all of Dirt Racing. From the very first race of our rookie season, we have been overwhelmed by the support from our loyal and energetic fan base. We encourage all fans to visit our trailer at anytime to meet the team, take photos, get autographs, and enjoy the experience of Dirt Racing at your local track. We would also appreciate your ongoing support with comments in our Guestbook and by joining the Express Fan Club.
