2014 Kansas: Red Horse Racing NASCAR Truck Race Recap


Red Horse Racing at Kansas Speedway

Under perfectly blue skies at Kansas Speedway on Friday afternoon, the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series was able to execute the new elimination-style qualifying for the first time since its inception. Qualifying was rained out for the first two events on the 2014 schedule. All three Red Horse Racing entries transferred into the second session. Germán Quiroga locked the No. 77 OtterBox Toyota Tundra into the 17th starting position. Brian Ickler and Timothy Peters transferred into the final qualifying session where Ickler and the No. 7 Bullet Liner team locked in the fourth position and Peters and the No. 17 Red Horse Racing team earned the eighth starting position. A multi-truck incident on the first lap involved the No. 17 and No. 77 Toyota Tundras, requiring repairs by both teams. The No. 7 snapped loose and made hard contact with the outside wall on lap 10 to end the night early for the Bullet Liner team. Despite the early damage, Quiroga drove the OtterBox Tundra to a seventh-place finish, his third top 10 in as many races this year, and jumped up to fourth in the Camping World Truck Series championship point standings. Peters finished in the 14th position and only fell to second in the point standings. The last time that Red Horse Racing team owner Tom DeLoach had two drivers in the top five in the Camping World Truck Series driver championship point standings was November 2012 following the season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway with Timothy Peters (second) and Parker Kligerman (fifth).

Germán Quiroga Finishes Seventh at Kansas Speedway; Moves to Fourth in NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Point Standings

Germán Quiroga came home with a seventh-place finish in Friday's SFP 250 at Kansas Speedway and moved up to fourth in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series point standings after a challenging race weekend. The No. 77 OtterBox Toyota Tundra was fast during Thursday's practice sessions, running consistently in the top 10, but a flat tire in the last few minutes of final practice sent Quiroga into the outside wall. The Red Horse Racing team returned to the track early on Friday and worked tirelessly to prepare the backup truck for the race. Quiroga still battled a tight-handling condition during the knock-out qualifying session and wasn't able to move past the second round, earning him a 17th-place starting position. Once the race started, Quiroga felt he had a competitive Tundra; however, on lap one a competitor got loose in front of the yellow and black machine and with nowhere to go, the Mexico City native was collected in the incident. He brought the No. 77 Toyota Tundra down pit road and the OtterBox team worked to repair the damage, giving Quiroga a truck with which he could finish the race. He battled with his Tundra throughout the race, and made numerous scheduled pit stops for adjustments. With improved handling, he rallied his way into the top 10. A late-race caution and a fast pit stop that gained him three positions was a key factor in his seventh-place finish. After the final restart he climbed to as high as fifth in the running order before settling into the seventh position, where he would take the checkered flag. The result was Quiroga's third top-10 finish of the season and fourth consecutive top 10 in Camping World Truck Series competition, with a seventh-place finish in the 2013 season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway (November), a tenth-place finish at Daytona International Speedway (February 2014) and seventh-place finish at Martinsville Speedway (March 2014).

Germán Quiroga Quote:
"I am so happy with our results tonight and I can't thank the team enough. After we wrecked in qualifying, the team worked extremely hard to give me a backup No. 77 OtterBox Toyota Tundra that was just as good as our primary truck. We didn't qualify as well as we wanted and then got tangled up in the first caution of the race, so to finish seventh after all of that is a big success in my opinion. We moved up to fourth in points and I feel really confident heading into Charlotte next week."

Timothy Peters Perseveres for a Top-15 Finish at Kansas Speedway

Timothy Peters and the No. 17 Red Horse Racing Toyota Tundra team secured the eighth starting position following the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series' first attempt at the new elimination-style qualifying format on Friday afternoon. As the sun began to dip in the Kansas City sky, Peters took the green flag from the fourth row to start the SFP 250. Before the field could complete lap one, melee ensued in turn four. The No. 17 Tundra received damage in the multi-truck incident and Peters drove to pit road so crew chief Marcus Richmond could assess the situation. With the font-end alignment out of balance, the team first attempted to make the adjustment on pit road and then proceeded to the Camping World Truck Series garage to complete the repairs. Peters returned to the race track six laps down to the leader. The No. 17 team continued to make chassis adjustments during scheduled pit stops throughout the remainder of the 167-lap event. With patience and perseverance, Peters climbed back into the top-15 and was scored with a 14th-place finish. The Camping World Truck Series veteran left Kansas Speedway second in the championship point standings, eight points behind leader Matt Crafton.

Timothy Peters Quote:
"This isn't how we imagined our night would go at Kansas [Speedway]. We came here feeling optimistic after a solid test at Charlotte [Motor Speedway]. To have everything go wrong on the first lap is frustrating, but this team never threw in the towel. We just kept at it and finished the race. We'll put this behind us and work hard to get ready for next Friday's race at Charlotte Motor Speedway. We have a lot of racing left in this season."

Early Exit for Brian Ickler and the No. 7 Bullet Liner Team
at Kansas Speedway

Brian Ickler and the No. 7 Bullet Liner Toyota Tundra team were very optimistic when they took the green flag for the SFP 250 at Kansas Speedway on Friday night. The black and white machine had been fast in both practice sessions on Thursday afternoon, and secured the fourth starting position in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series' first effort of the new elimination style qualifying format. As the sun set over the 1.5-mile speedway, the field took the green flag for the first Camping World Truck Series race under the lights of the Kansas City race track. In the early laps Ickler reported a loose-handling condition on the Bullet Liner machine, and fought to maintain control. Following the lap-seven restart after the night's first caution period, the California native worked to maintain control of the truck and remain in the top 10. On lap eight, the No. 7 Toyota Tundra suddenly snapped loose and made hard contact with the outside retaining wall of turn four. After assessing the damage, the Bullet Liner team determined that it was too extensive to return to the race track. Ickler was scored with a 27th-place finish in the third event on the 2014 Camping Truck Series schedule.

Start - 4
Finish - 27
Driver Points Position - 18
Laps Led - 0

Brian Ickler Quote:
"We had a great Bullet Liner Toyota Tundra here [at Kansas Speedway] this weekend. It was just hard, three-wide racing early in the race. I got up too high on the track and it just got loose. Not a good night for us. I just want to thank all these guys on the No. 7 Bullet Liner team and everyone back at the shop. They built a great truck."

UP NEXT: CHARLOTTE MOTOR SPEEDWAY

The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series heads to Charlotte Motor Speedway for the Friday, May 16 North Carolina Education Lottery 200. The fourth race of the 2014 season is scheduled to be televised live on FOX Sports 1 at 8:30 p.m. Eastern Time. It will also be broadcast live on the Motor Racing Network and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio, channel 90.
