Turner Scott Motorsports announced Tuesday that it is shutting down the No. 30 Camping World Truck Series team of Ron Hornaday Jr., and laying off 18 employees.

"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."

Turner Scott Motorsports will continue to field entries in the Truck and Nationwide Series. Dylan Kwasniewski and Kyle Larson will drive the team’s Nationwide entries this weekend at Richmond International Raceway. The Truck series is off this weekend.

Hornaday’s team did not compete last weekend at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park. Cameron Hayley finished 10th, and Ben Kennedy was 15th in the team’s other Trucks.

Tuesday’s announcement comes as co-owners Steve Turner and Harry Scott Jr. have filed legal documents against each other. Turner has filed a lawsuit against Scott in a Texas court, while Scott has filed a notice of complaint in a North Carolina court. The Sporting News first reported the legal action.

Turner’s lawsuit states that he and his co-plaintiffs seek more than $3 million  from Scott. Turner’s lawsuit also seeks dismissal of Scott in Turner Scott Motorsports. Scott bought 40 percent of the team from Turner in 2012. Court documents allege that Scott’s company agreed that a $2 million debt was to be paid to Turner and his affiliates but it has not been paid.

Scott’s notice, according to The Sporting News, alleges that Turner has allowed the team’s funds to be depleted, debts have gone unpaid and Turner did not fund entries as he was obligated to do so. Scott’s notice, according to the report, alleges that Turner misapplied sponsorship funds and revenues.
