Scott Speed, whose short-lived NASCAR career shows only 76 Sprint Cup Series starts between 2008 and last year, will return for three midsummer races with team owner Brad Jenkins. The 28-year-old Californian will drive the No. 37 Ford Fusion this coming weekend at Indianapolis Motor Speedway and then at Pocono and Watkins Glen.

Ex-Formula One driver Speed had one top-five and three top-10 finishes in 76 starts for Team Red Bull, which fired him last fall. He has filed a wrongful-termination suit against the company. He also had eight top-10s in 13 Nationwide Series starts and one win, four top-fives and nine top-10s in 16 Camping World Truck Series starts.

Speed's best results came in 22 ARCA starts in 2007 and 2008. He won four times, had three poles, 10 top-fives and 18 top-10s even as he ran most of the Camping World races for owners David Dollar and Bill Davis.
