Several media outlets are reporting this afternoon that Turner Scott Motorsports is shuttering their Camping World Truck Series operations as of 3 pm this afternoon. While there are confirmations that some Turner Scott Motorsports employees were temporarily laid off as of 3 pm Wednesday afternoon. There is reason to believe it is not the entire Camping World Truck series operation that is shuttering, but possibly one team.
This is the statement given by Harry Scott on Sirius XM radio this afternoon:
“Turner Scott Motorsports remains in operation and will compete in this weekend’s NASCAR events. 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.
“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. 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.”
Questions still surround the No. 30 team of Ron Hornaday Jr, now sitting third in the Camping World Truck Series point standings.
This is a fluid situation and as confirmed information becomes available, look for updates to this story.
