Former Truck Series Owner Steve Turner Dies

Former NASCAR Camping World Truck Series championship team owner Steve Turner passed away Thursday evening in his native Texas, following a brief illness.  

A successful owner on both dirt and asphalt, Turner parlayed a highly successful Texas oil business into a winning NASCAR career.

He purchased the former Braun Racing NASCAR Xfinity Series operation in 2009, renaming it Turner Motorsports. He captured the Truck Series title in 2012 with son-in-law James Buescher at the controls, before joining forces with Harry Scott, Jr. and renaming the team Turner-Scott Motorsports the following season.  

Turner left the sport in 2014, and had most recently resided in Houston.
