Turner Scott Motorsports co-owner Harry Scott Jr put an end to rumors that the team was shutting down its NASCAR Camping World Truck Series operation. However, Ron Hornaday Jr is not scheduled to race at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park on Sunday as the team will only bring two trucks to the road course instead of three.

Ben Kennedy, who is ninth in the driver standings and leading the Rookie of the Year race, will drive the No. 31 Chevrolet on Sunday and Cameron Hayley will make his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series debut in the No. 32 Chevrolet. The four-time champion Hornaday is fourth in the driver standings but his No. 30 Chevrolet will not make the trip to Canada.

"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," Scott said. "To all TSM employees, 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."

NASCAR Hits Homerun with Darlington Back on Labor Day Weekend

In 2004 NASCAR made the worst move they could have ever made. NASCAR was a growing sport back in the 2003 season as ratings and attendance were at an all-time high. Racing was sensational and in that season many great events took place. Included in those events was the 2003 Southern 500 at Darlington when veteran driver Terry Labonte won his first race in over three seasons and won the final Southern 500 on Labor Day weekend. It was a bittersweet day.

Labonte was always a fan favorite, a calm, smart driver who usually wouldn't show his hand until late in the event. When the going got tough, Terry Labonte usually got going. There was not an unhappy person walking out of Darlington Raceway that day. Well, that's not true. Everyone was very happy for Labonte, in what turned out to be his 23rd and final career NASCAR Sprint Cup Series victory. However, fans were unhappy for another reason.

2015 NASCAR Nationwide Series and Camping World Truck Series Schedules Released

August 26th, 2014 at 9:36 PM
By Mark Eddinger

Not much has changed on the 2015 schedules for the soon-to-be-renamed NASCAR Nationwide Series and the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. The current Nationwide Series schedule remains at 33 races and at all the same tracks as 2014. The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series gains one race date to expand from 22 to 23 races.

The Truck Series will return to Atlanta Motor Speedway for the first time since 2012 when Ty Dillon won. The trucks raced there from 2004 to 2012 and actually had two races a season there from 2005 to 2008. The race date will be on Saturday, February 28th the week after the season begins in Daytona. Also the race will be a part of a unique scenario as the Nationwide Series will also race at Atlanta on the same day to make for a doubleheader event.

The other 22 races on the schedule for the Truck Series remain at the same tracks as 2014. That means Eldora Speedway will host a dirt track race for the third straight year and that Canadian Tire Motorsports Park will host a road course race for the third straight year.
