Father's Day - Richard Petty Motorsports
Brian Scott

RPM Rookie, Brian Scott, also reflects on what being a father has meant to him and the positivity of adoption.

“In all honesty, deciding to get married and have kids is daring, and may be one of the most daring things I’ve ever done. However, it’s also one of the most rewarding things to become a dad to both Brielle and Jojo. As everyone knows, I adopted Brielle when I married Whitney. So often, people consider women that might have children from a previous relationship a negative thing when in all actuality, I really feel like it’s a positive. You’re getting not just one person who loves you – you’re getting two. If you nurture it in the right way and you commit to it, it’s a welcome addition and a positive thing in so many ways. Then, we grew our family when we had Jojo, and Brielle really loves being a big sister to Jojo.”

When asked about one of his favorite aspects of being a father he responded;“Just being there for the kids and enjoying family moments together, playing with them, hearing them laugh and seeing them smile — all of those things are so much better than any of the negative aspects people like to bring up about having kids. It’s not baggage — it’s great addition to my life.”

Hats off to you, fathers! All of Richard Petty Motorsports,  thank you for all of your love and support over the years. From useless knowledge to the most serious of life lessons, we’ve picked it all up from you and wouldn’t have it any other way; Happy Father’s Day! Source: RPM Motorsports
