Sprint Cup Series

Car No. 46 history

It was announced prior to the 2014 season that former Phoenix Racing owner James Finch would return to field a part-time entry numbered 52 with HScott for Bobby Labonte, beginning with the Daytona 500.[3] Labonte ran the second HScott car during preseason Daytona testing using Scott's TSM number style,[4] then used Finch's traditional Phoenix Racing number style and paint scheme during the Daytona 500. The team picked up sponsorship from the Florida Lottery, and Labonte finished a solid 15th.[5] The team did not run the rest of the season.

Michael Annett's No. 46 at qualifying for the 2015 Toyota/Save Mart 350

For 2015 Michael Annett brought his longtime primary sponsor Pilot Flying J, as well as associate sponsors Cypress Associates and Allstate Peterbilt, to drive a second HSM car full-time after running his rookie season with Tommy Baldwin Racing. The car number was later revealed to be #46[6] and Jay Guy was announced as crew chief.[7] Annett finished 13th at the season-opening Daytona 500. He failed to qualify for next race at Atlanta, one of 13 drivers to not pass inspection and set a time during qualifying. Shortly after, HScott was given a second chance after Xfinity Series regular Brian Scott gave up his seat in the #33 Circle Sport Racing Chevrolet. The car was wrapped in Pilot Flying J colors, and Circle Sport owner Joe Falk was credited with owner's points under NASCAR rules.[8] During the 2015 season, Annett had a rough season and he also missed the fall Talladega race.

Car No. 51 History

Following sponsorship struggles, Phoenix Racing owner James Finch sold his Spartanburg, South Carolina-based operation to Harry Scott, Jr. in mid-2013,[1] with Finch's last race as an owner at the Atlanta Labor Day Event in September. Ryan Truex (who had driven for Phoenix at Bristol earlier in the year) drove Scott's first race as owner at Richmond, finishing 35th. Although the team used the old Phoenix Racing font for the first race, for his second race Scott's ownership was displayed by changing the paint scheme and number style of the car to match those used by Turner Scott Motorsports. In addition, on February 5, 2014, Scott announced that Phoenix Racing would be renamed to HScott Motorsports.[9]

Scott’s Nationwide Series driver Justin Allgaier drove the car with BRANDT Agricultural sponsorship at Chicagoland, Kansas, and Talladega.[1][10] Kyle Larson, Allgaier's teammate at Turner Scott who was set to take over the #42 car the next year at Chip Ganassi Racing, drove the car at Charlotte and Martinsville with an inverted white and red Target scheme.[11] Larson started 21st at Charlotte, but a late engine failure relegated him to a 37th-place finish.[12] Michael McDowell would run the car at New Hampshire, and Truex made his third start for the team at his home track Dover. Allgaier ran one more race at Phoenix, while Larson ran three more races with a best finish of 15th at Homestead.

Justin Allgaier at Sonoma in 2015.

The team announced following the season that Allgaier would drive the #51 and compete for Rookie of the Year honors in 2014 with crew chief Steve Addington. Allgaier finished third in the ROTY standings behind Kyle Larson and Austin Dillon. The team failed to qualify for a single race, the GEICO 500 at Talladega in the fall, due to an unusual qualifying session that also saw another full-time driver also miss the race.

Allgaier returned to the team in 2015, with Brandt continuing to sponsor the team. He successfully qualified for the first two races of the season. Allgaier crashed during the 2015 Daytona 500 but rebounded a few weeks later at Phoenix. Allgaier was lapped on lap 56 during the 2015 Camping World.com 500 at Phoenix. Despite this, thanks to a strategy call by crew chief Addington, Allgaier got back onto the lead lap and raced his way into the top ten by the time there were 35 laps to go. After contact with Tony Stewart, Allgaier faded in the final 5 laps, finishing 18th. The next week at Fontana, Allgaier repeated his Phoenix performance, running as high as 8th and finishing 12th-his best finish at the time. A few weeks later, at Bristol, Allgaier ran well all race, even up in the top 5 at one point. Allgaier ended up finishing 8th, his first Cup top 10, and the first for HScott Motorsports as well.

Allgaier had another good race at Richmond when he ran as high as second due to pit strategy. Despite not leading a lap, Allgaier ran in second for over 50 laps and went on to finish in the top 18.

Xfinity Series

HScott Motorsports with Chip Ganassi

Car No. 42 history

Following financial issues with co-owner Steve Turner that led to the dissolution of Turner Scott Motorsports, Scott found a new partner in the team, Chip Ganassi (whose drivers Kyle Larson and Dylan Kwasniewski drove for TSM), to field a single Xfinity Series entry under the name HScott Motorsports with Chip Ganassi. The team will run out of the Chip Ganassi Racing shop, with Larson,[13] Brennan Poole,[14] and Justin Marks sharing the ride. Kwasniewski did not return to the team due to lack of sponsorship.[15] Larson began with a eight place finish at the season opener at Daytona.

K&N Pro Series East & West

William Byron at Sonoma in the K&N Pro Series West in 2015.

For 2015, Harry Scott, Jr took control of the K&N Pro Series East operation of the now-defunct Turner Scott Motorsports. Scott partnered with Justin Marks to field four teams under the name HScott Motorsports with Justin Marks with returning driver Scott Heckert and rookies William Byron, J.J. Haley, and Dalton Sargeant.[13] Following his win at the Chili Bowl Midget Nationals, 22-year-old Rico Abreu was signed to drive the team's 98 car in January 2015.[16][17] The team also competed in several K&N Pro Series West events.[18] Byron scored four wins en route to the series championship.[19]
