TSM to field only two trucks at Mosport

The No. 31 Chevrolet of Ben Kennedy and the No. 32 of Cameron Hayley will be competing in the Chevrolet Silverado 250 (FOX Sports 1, 1:30 p.m. ET).
Currently not scheduled to make the trek across the border is the No. 30 team of four-time series champion Ron Hornaday Jr., who is fourth in points following last week's race at Bristol Motor Speedway.
It was reported earlier Wednesday that the organization, founded by Steve Turner and co-owned by Harry Scott Jr., had shuttered its entire NCWTS operation.
"Turner Scott Motorsports remains in operation and will compete in this weekend's NASCAR events," Scott said in a statement issued by the team. "TSM's Nationwide Series race teams represented by the No. 42 driven by Kyle Larson and the No. 31 driven by Dylan Kwasniewski will compete this weekend as scheduled at Atlanta Motor Speedway."
Scott said the entries of Kennedy and Hayley would compete, as scheduled, at Canadian Tire as well.
"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," Scott said. "To all TSM employees, 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."
The No. 30 entry of Hornaday, while a part of the TSM organization, is the responsibility of Turner, according to a team spokesperson.
Kennedy is currently ninth in points while Hayley, a product of NASCAR Next, will be making his series debut in the No. 32 entry. That team has had several drivers behind the wheel this season, including Sprint Cup driver Larson as well as Tayler Malsam and NASCAR Next driver Ben Rhodes.
Hayley is also scheduled to compete at New Hampshire and Texas with the team later this year.
Turner Scott has 11 victories in the Truck Series, but is winless thus far in 2014. James Buescher captured the series' championship for the organization in 2012.
