Unclear whether driver Ron Hornaday can continue.

Turner Scott Motorsports announced today that it has taken the "regrettable but necessary" steps to lay off 18 employees company-wide as a result of ending operations of the No. 30 NCWTS team and in order to remain competitive throughout the remainder of the 2014 season.
 
"The decision to lay off any employee is painful and we realize the affects it has on their lives," said Harry Scott, Jr., whose investment firm is a co-owner of TSM. "However, the decisions made by TSM today are necessary and the responsible steps for all of TSM to ensure our commitment to our employees, partners and fans to be as competitive as possible."
 
The company notified employees this afternoon and will do all it can to help those affected to find new roles in the industry.

Sporting News reported that the two team owners, Harry Scott and Steve Turner, are involved in a legal battle regarding money and unpaid bills. Scott bought into Turner's team in 2012, and owns the Sprint Cup car being driven by Justin Allgaier.

Hornaday, who was fourth in the points, sat out the last Camping World truck race in Canada, but the other two Turner Scott trucks competed. By missing the last race, Hornaday has now dropped to sixth in points. The next race is 10 days away, at Chicagoland Speedway.
