STEWARTVILLE, Mo. -- King of America II Modified Nationals winner Stormy Scott has left TC Motorsports for a ride with Bryan Rowland and Rowland Racing.
According to team owner and crew chief T.C. Noel, the team will sit out this weekend's events at the Humboldt Speedway and Valley Speedway as he helps a customer with a new car. Currently, Noel is talking with several drivers being considered to fill the seat.
"There has been a lot of rumors, so I just want to make things clear," Noel said. "Me and Stormy did part ways, but there are no hard feelings, just business, and I wish him best of luck with his new team.
"We are going to move forward with our year too. Going to take this weekend off and get things all figured out."
At the time of his departure, Scott had the #2s GRT/Yeoman sitting sixth in USMTS National Championship Series points and third in USMTS Casey's Cup Series points. He is also the runaway points leader in the USMTS Rookie of the Year chase, and his 145 laps led ranks second among all USMTS drivers this season.
Stormy's twin brother, Johnny, began the 2012 campaign with the Rowland Racing stable, but left to pair up with Dereck Ramirez and the Ramirez Motorsports team last month.
