I blame this on Kwasniewski crashing too much.

Such a disappointment that one of the more competitive teams in the Truck Series is no longer around.

I second this.

ThorSport will win every driver championship now till the series closes with Kyle Busch continuously winning owners championships, cause that's the only championship he can win now in days.

I feel bad for Ron Hornaday cause this screws him out of any championship hopes he had unless he finds a ride somewhere quick or makes his own team.

TSM has had some unbelievably talented development drivers lately, and a lot of them. I wounder how dire of an effect that this could have on them moving up the NASCAR ranks for the team.

This is really disappointing to hear, and one of the last things that the Truck Series needs right now.

Another update has been added to that article:

Godfather Motorsports Blog wrote:UPDATE: 5:15 PM ET -- Several employees of TSM have confirmed that they were laid off -- at least temporarily -- at approximately 3 PM ET today.

I'm still very confused as to what's going on. Hopefully there will be more updates to clarify the situation soon.

UPDATE 2: Statement from Harry Scott Jr. Regarding Turner Scott Motorsports: "Turner Scott Motorsports remains in operation and will compete in this weekend's NASCAR events. TSM's NASCAR Nationwide Series race teams represented by the #42 driven by Kyle Larson and the #31 driven by Dylan Kwasniewski will complete this weekend as scheduled at Atlanta Motor Speedway.
"The #31 driven by Ben Kennedy and the #32 driven by Cameron Hayley in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series will compete as scheduled at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park this coming Sunday.
"My investment company, a co-owner of TSM, will continue to do all that it can to keep the team moving forward with or without our business partner Steve Turner. To all TSM employees, sponsors, partners and fans I pledge we will continue to do what we can to keep the teams racing hard each and every week of the season."(Tuckahoe Strategies)(8-27-2014)

From what i'm getting is power struggle between Turner and Scott.

That really sucks to see one of the bigger truck teams gone especially when they're having trouble with entries on non short tracks.

PDATE 5: The legal tussling over Turner Scott Motorsports spreads over two states as co-owner Steve Turner has sued co-owner Harry Scott in Texas court, and Scott has field a notice of complaint in North Carolina court. Turner filed his suit Aug. 11, and Scott filed his paperwork Wednesday after the team announced that Ron Hornaday would not race this weekend in Canada. Hornaday is fourth in the Camping World Truck Series standings. Turner, who seeks more than $3 million in his lawsuit, alleges that he has been forced to lend money to the race team to keep it from defaulting on its bills. It alleges that Scott - who bought 40 percent of the team in 2012 - hasn't taken responsibility for payment to vendors. It alleges that Scott agreed that a $2 million debt to Turner that existed at the time the partnership was formed was to be repaid by the race team, and so far, none of that debt has been repaid. "Scott has refused to approve actions that are necessary and material to the business, leaving the Company unable to operate," the lawsuit states. Turner also asks for a receiver to be appointed to run the company and that Scott be removed from his leadership role in the race team. Scott, in turn, stated in his North Carolina filing that he will ask for a receiver to run the team without Turner. Scott, according to documents obtained by the Sporting News, filed a notice of suit Wednesday by asking for an extension of time to file a complaint against Turner. He has 20 days to file the suit.(Sporting News)(8-29-2014)

Interesting that Turner accuses Scott of not paying bills and such, since Scott accused Turner of the same thing.
