Turner Scott Shakeup Leaves Hornaday Out
MOORESVILLE, N.C. – Turner Scott Motorsports will have two trucks instead of three at the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event at Canada’s Canadian Tire Motorsports Park this weekend.
Ron Hornaday Jr., a four-time Truck Series champion ranked fourth in points, will not drive his No. 30 Chevy after a shakeup on Wednesday left the team’s highest-ranked ride out in the cold.
Reports had swirled of TSM’s Truck Series operations dissolving entirely, but a statement from co-owner Harry Scott Jr. said otherwise.
“Turner Scott Motorsports remains in operation and will compete in this weekend’s NASCAR events,” Scott said. “TSM’s NASCAR Nationwide Series race teams represented by the No. 42 driven by Kyle Larson and the No. 31 driven by Dylan Kwasniewski will complete this weekend as scheduled at Atlanta Motor Speedway.
“The No. 31 driven by Ben Kennedy and the No. 32 driven by Cameron Hayley in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series will compete as scheduled at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park this coming Sunday.”
Scott vowed to keep TSM’s program going amid concerns of its demise.
“My investment company, a co-owner of TSM, will continue to do all that it can to keep the team moving forward with or without our business partner Steve Turner,” the release said. “To all TSM employees, sponsors, partners and fans I pledge we will continue to do what we can to keep the teams racing hard each and every week of the season.”
