Ron Hornaday Jr. Still Looking to Lock Up Full Season

Ron Hornaday Jr. is currently fifth in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series points standings. However, the 56-year-old veteran has yet to lock up a deal with Turner Scott Motorsports to run the entire season.

Initially, Hornaday signed on with TSM for multiple races this season, but Rheem has been satisfied with his performances through four races this year. The four-time Camping World Truck Series champion enters Dover with three top-10s and 62 laps led so far this year. 

After speaking with Hornaday on Friday morning, Speedway Digest has learned that Hornaday might not run the full season. As he nears the end of his career, Hornaday is still making a push for the coveted Truck Series title, even while trying to get funding. Hornaday told us that it is all up to Steve Turner at this point as well as Rheem. If they feel he is capable of running for the title, he will continue to be entered in the No. 30 Chevrolet on a weekly basis. 

Entering Dover, Hornaday has 51 Camping World Truck Series victories along with 227 top-10s in 348 starts.
