The four-time series champion told FOX Sports1 television Friday night that he would pilot a sixth Turner Scott Motorsports entry in the last race of the year. Hornaday's current team, NTS Motorsports, informed him before Friday night's race at Phoenix International Raceway that it would make a change effective next week, Hornaday told the network after cutting a tire and crashing out of the event.
NTS Motorsports confirmed the move in a Saturday news release. The organization will announce the No. 9 driver at a later date.
"We at NTS Motorsports appreciate everything Ron has done this year to help build NTS Motorsports in its first year competing at the national level in NASCAR," team owner Bob Newberry said in the release. "Ron has been a great asset to our organization and we wish him the best in his future endeavors."
Hornaday is the all-time race winner in Truck Series history, with 51 trips to Victory Lane. He finished 28th Friday and is 11th in the standings.
