Positives: Had best finish of 10th place at Indianapolis (naturally), qualified in the top-ten 5 times, and collected bonus points in 2 races.
Negatives:  Had 6 DNQ's and 11 DNF's in which he crashed out in 9 races.  Averaged a finish of 7 places below qualifying position.  Fined $10,000 for intentionally running into Robert Pressley during a cool-down lap.
Comments: 2000 was anything but a smooth transition to WC for the former open-wheel driver.   2001 could be a shaky year as well for Scott.  The guideline that all rookies get at least a C saves him from a much poorer grade.
Overall Grade for 2000:
