Hornaday Out At NTS Motorsports

Former NASCAR Camping World Truck Series champion Ron Hornaday, Jr. will not finish the season in the No. 9 NTS Motorsports Chevrolet.

The team announced today that Hornaday “has been released of his driving duties” following a crash in Friday night’s race at Phoenix International Raceway.  
"We at NTS Motorsports appreciate everything Ron 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 is expected to drive for Turner Scott Motorsports in next weekend’s season finale at Homestead Miami Speedway. His 28th-place finish Friday leaves him 11th in championship points, with four  Top-5 and nine Top-10 finishes this season. Sources say there has been tension within the team since Hornaday crashed with teammate Brennan Newberry -- son of the team owner -- at Las Vegas Motor Speedway last month.
His replacement in the No. 9 NTS Motorsports truck will be announced this week.

    Glad to hear Ron will be back in quality equipment

  5. Ron will get to drive a Hendrick Powered Truck, did he loose on his end? Not at all! NTS has not been a shining star in the series, it is easy to see the agenda there.

    I won't say Brennan Newberry is not a qualified driver but he has not shown anything more then any other driver put in a race truck/car by his dad that came before him. It is amazing how this new breed of owners with agendas can take a race team that won and performed well and turn it into an also ran in a season or 2.
