    "Scott — a lifelong race fan — entered the sport as an Xfinity Series sponsor with Accu-Dot Solutions in 2009 with Braun Racing. The Raleigh, N.C. native quickly moved into the ownership side, first with Todd Braun and driver Brian Scott. He partnered with Steve Turner in 2013 and Turner Scott Motorsports was born.

    That season, TSM won the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East title with Dylan Kwasniewski. The organization also fielded cars in the NXS and Camping World Truck Series.

    Scott eventually went on his own with HScott Motorsports and recruited Justin Allgaier in 2013 for a limited run on Monster Energy Cup Series. He also provided rides for aspiring drivers Ben Rhodes and Justin Haley in ARCA and Kyle Larson, Justin Marks and Brennan Poole in the Xfinity Series.

    HSM purchased James Finch’s Phoenix Racing in 2013 and expanded to a full-time Cup schedule in 2014 with Allgaier.

    “I’ve always been interested in racing, always been a race fan, always been attracted to it,” Scott told NASCAR.com in 2015. “Growing up in Raleigh I wasn’t in the racing scene, I didn’t grow up in it. My father was a physician. The first real inside exposure that I had was with Todd and that group. I was introduced to them in Daytona in February of 2009. We built a friendship and then we built a partnership in 2010.

    “It was almost an internship. I had the ability to get the exposure; they welcomed me. It was a really good opportunity to get the experience that prepared me for what it’s become today through a series of other opportunities.”

    The No. 51 team finished 29th in the standings, then expanded to two teams in 2015 with the addition of Michael Annett. Allgaier gave Scott his first top-10 finish in the Cup series at the 2015 Bristol Motor Speedway spring race. Allgaier was replaced by Clint Bowyer the following year. Bowyer earned three top 10s and finished 27th in the 2016 standings. Scott shuttered the team at the end of the year.

    Steve Turner, his business partner with Turner Scott Motorsports, passed away in May of last year."

    Damn, my Kyle Larson 51 diecast came in the mail today. Sad to see someone who gave my favorite driver his first cup ride gone before he could get a championship.

    The dude was a crook and destroyed one of the most notorious development teams in NASCAR. So many people were negatively affected by his presence in the sport. Just because he died doesn't mean every wrong he did is corrected into right.

    Nobody said it was. Everyone has stated his death is sad.

    Shocked that Mark Smith didn't get a decal but Harry Scott Jr. does. Sure, his death is sad, but Mark Smith did more for the sport than Harry Scott ever did.

    RIP Harry Scott Jr. At least you gave drivers opportunities to race in NASCAR.
