Scott was born in Louisville, Kentucky
and attended the University of Louisville
. Starting out on two wheels, Harrington won a number of championships and achieved much success in the world of AMAMotocross
. In 1986 Sports Car Magazine picked Harrington as one of the three most promising drivers in the U.S. He was a multiple race winner in Toyota Formula Atlantic
, finishing third in the 1988 championship despite running the uncompetitive Ralt
chassis. He was the only person ever to win a race in the 1988 Ralt. From 1992 through 1994, Scott had much success in the SCCACan-Am
series. During his tenure in the series, he won more races than any other driver. He won the 1992 championship and scored race wins in every season.
An accomplished open wheel racer who made a single CART
start in 1989, Harrington made a last second Bump Day
run to qualify for the first IRL-sanctioned Indianapolis 500
. In 1999 he ran a full IRL season with his own team and had numerous top ten finishes, including a top five finish at Phoenix International Raceway
, at the time the highest finishing position for the Infiniti engine. Despite failing to qualify for the Indy 500 and suffering serious injuries at Texas 1 (broken left tibia, right fibula, right foot and three ribs) he won the Rookie of the Year honors by a slim margin over Robby McGehee
. Harrington attempted to qualify for seven different Indy 500 races but only succeeded once.
Scott is also one of the few American drivers to compete in the “Big Three” of American motorsports – The Indy 500, The 24 Hours of Daytona
, and The 12 Hours of Sebring
. Harrington also competed in the SVRA celebrity Pro-Am in 2014, 2015 and 2016. He finished 9th of the 33 starters in 2015. Harrington is one of the original instructors at the Mid-Ohio school, a position he still holds today.
