Following their success in the 2012 NASCAR season, Turner Motorsports continues to find success as their team continues to grow.

On Friday the team announced a new change as Harry Scott Jr., who had been a longtime minority owner of the team will now have a bigger role with the team. Going into 2013 Scott along with Steve Turner will be the co-owners of the newly re-branded Turner Scott Motorsports.

Prior to becoming the new co-owner of Turner Scott Motorsports, Scott had been a sponsor in 2009 as well as a minority owner. He has first partnered with Braun Racing before Turner Motorsports acquired it. In his new role with the team, Scott will oversee several new areas of the team as marketing, public relations, and business.

The re-branding of the team occurs as TSM heads into their fourth full season in NASCAR. The team will return to the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series with the current champion James Buescher, Miguel Paludo, and Jeb Burton. Their Nationwide Series plans have yet to be announced.

As the team continues to grow it’s the latest of the success the team has had over the last year. In the 2012 season the team captured two of the highest honors in the truck series with the drivers’ championship and the owners’ championship. Most of its drivers captured several honors throughout the year.

Turner Motorsports over the last few NASCAR seasons has fielded cars in the trucks and Nationwide Series and in 2012 the team managed to win in both series. The team pretty much swept all honors in the trucks series, and even took the first win of the season at Daytona in Nationwide.

In 2012 the team found success and as a re-branded team they will be looking to add more over the next season and beyond.
