Avondale, AZ- Ron Hornaday Jr. crashed Friday night in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series at the Phoenix International Raceway. After the crash he told reporters that he was released from NTS Motorsports starting immediately as the team would be searching for a new driver in the season finale next weekend at the Homestead-Miami Speedway. “We at NTS Motorsports appreciate everything Ron (Hornaday) has done this year to help build NTS Motorsports in its first year competing at the national level in NASCAR,” said team owner Bob Newberry. “Ron has been a great asset to our organization and we wish him the best in his future endeavors.” Hornaday didn’t take long to find a new home though as he will be behind the wheel of a Turner/Scott Motorsports Chevrolet in Homestead. It wasn’t the performance in the No. 9 Chevy the past two years at NTS Motorsports. After having some very good years with Kevin Harvick Inc., the organization shut down following the 2011 season. NTS signed him for 2012 and this season but he didn’t have much success. Hornaday only had six top five finishes in the last two years after being so successful prior to that. He’s a four-time Camping World Truck Series champion with his latest title coming in 2009. He’s also won 51 times in Truck competition and is not ready to slow down yet despite the youth movement coming into the series. The TSM ride is only for Homestead but he would like to run for them full-time in 2014. That could be a possible championship level relationship between the two.
