Money-wise, Piquet's switch to Nationwide racing this year will be backed by long-time sponsors Qualcomm, Autotrac and TAG Heuer Eyewear, along with additional funding from Delavaco Capital Inc. and power tools specialist Worx. Piquet will continue to have long-time Truck crew chief Chris Carrier alongside him also moving into the Nationwide Series in 2013.
"He and Chris Carrier are a really good match, and we're glad we can give them a chance to bring that chemistry to the Nationwide Series," said Scott.
Piquet will start the new season in the Worx-sponsored Chevy on Saturday, February 23 in the DRIVE4COPD 300 event at Daytona International Speedway, and Scott made clear the expectations that the team and the driver had for their 2013 campaign.
"We have what is arguably the strongest lineup our Nationwide program has ever had, and we feel very confident that Turner Scott Motorsports will be hoisting the trophy in Homestead," he said.
