about Scott Speed

Scott Andrew Speed (born January 24, 1983) is an American race car driver, who currently races in Global Rallycross for the Andretti Autosport team.

In 2006, Speed became the first American driver to race in Formula One since Michael Andretti in 1993, when he made his début at the 2006 Bahrain Grand Prix for Scuderia Toro Rosso. He contested 28 races, before he was fired midway through the 2007 season and replaced by Sebastian Vettel. Speed later turned his career towards stock car racing; specifically NASCAR, where he drove for Red Bull Racing Team, Whitney Motorsports and Leavine Family Racing in the Sprint Cup Series. Subsequently, he moved into Global Rallycross with Andretti Autosport, winning the title in 2015, 2016 and 2017.
