KERNERSVILLE, N.C. — NTS Motorsports has announced that four-time NASCAR Camping World Truck Series champion Ron Hornaday Jr. will return to the series in two races for the team.

Hornaday’s two-race deal will begin at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on September 27th in the Rhino Linings 350. Hornaday’s second, and final, race of the newly-signed deal will take place at Texas Motor Speedway on October 31st in the WinStar World Casino 350k.

Rheem, Hornaday’s sponsor from his tenure at Turner Scott Motorsports earlier this year, will follow the 51-time Truck race winner over to his new team for both starts. Hornaday will drive NTS Motorsports’ No. 9 Chevrolet.

Managing Director for Rheem Motorsports, Ed Raniszeski, spoke of the opportunity to continue their relationship with Hornaday with NTS Motorsports.

“At this late stage of the season, Rheem is fortunate to have found a quality organization like NTS Motorsports that was able to arrange for the caliber of race trucks and personnel that Ron Hornaday deserves and that gives him a solid chance to visit victory lane this season,” Raniszeski said. “Everyone involved in this effort is looking forward to getting Ron back where he belongs.”

Hornaday ran the first 13 races of the season for Turner Scott Motorsports in the No. 30 Chevrolet before his team shut down prior to the Chevrolet Silverado 250 at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park. The 56-year-old from Palmdale, California, has not raced for any team in the series’ last two races.

With his move over to NTS Motorsports, Hornaday will be reunited with a team that he raced in the Camping World Truck Series with in the 2012 and 2013 seasons. In a statement released by today, team owner Bob Newberry expressed his excitement with working with Hornaday again.

“NTS Motorsports has had a long standing relationship with Ron Hornaday,” Newberry said in a statement. “Hornaday is a proven four-time champion and I’m glad we have the opportunity to work with him again.”
