More updates became available on Friday in the Turner Scott Motorsports saga and what seems to be a feud between the two co-owners Steve Turner and Harry Scott Jr. On Thursday it was reported that Harry Scott Jr was suing Turner and Friday Sporting News reported that Steve Turner is also suing Scott.
Apparently Turner filed suit against Scott on August 11th in Texas court. Scott filed his lawsuit on Wednesday in North Carolina court.
Turner is seeking more than $3 million in his lawsuit and alleges that he has been forced to lend money to the race team to keep it from defaulting on its bills. Turner also alleges that Scott hasn't taken responsibility for payment to vendors.
“Scott has refused to approve actions that are necessary and material to the business, leaving the Company unable to operate,” the lawsuit states.
The No. 30 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series team that Ron Hornaday Jr has driven for in 2014 is not at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park for Sunday's race while two other Turner Scott Motorsport trucks are. Hornaday, who is fourth in the Truck Series standings, is unsure if his No. 30 team will return to the track this season.
"I called Mr. Turner (TSM co-owner Steve Turner) and he said he couldn't talk about it, and that's all I got out of the whole situation other than what's written and what's said on the Internet," Hornaday told FOXSports.com on Friday. "So I don't know."
Scott alleges that Turner has mismanaged the team's funds and especially has not held up the end of the ownership that he was obligated to.
Both Turner and Scott have both requested that a receiver be appointed to run the team without Turner in Scott's case and without Scott in Turner's case.
