2014 Charlotte: Timothy Peters NASCAR Truck Race Preview

This Week's Red Horse Racing Toyota Tundra at Charlotte Motor Speedway... Peters will be competing in chassis No. 015 in the North Carolina Education Lottery 200 at Charlotte Motor Speedway (CMS) this weekend. This is the same Toyota Tundra he drove to Victory Lane at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in 2013, earning Red Horse Racing its first win at a 1.5-mile race track. He tested this chassis at CMS earlier this season and last drove it to a top-10 finish at the 2013 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

Peters History at Charlotte Motor Speedway... Peters has two top-10 finishes at Charlotte Motor Speedway in his eight previous starts at the Concord, North Carolina race track. The Red Horse Racing driver earned the pole award there in the 2011 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event with a 177.2 mph lap. He has led a total of 47 laps at CMS and holds an average starting position of 10.6.

Let's Go Places...to the Toyota Pit Pass... Fans can participate in a Q&A session with Peters on Friday, May 16, from 3-3:30 p.m. Eastern Time at the Toyota Pit Pass in the Charlotte Motor Speedway Midway.

Cardinal for a Day... Peters traveled to St. Louis, Missouri to promote the return of NASCAR to Gateway Motorsports Park. In addition to a busy media tour, the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series veteran threw out the first pitch at the St. Louis Cardinals baseball game on Tuesday, May 13. Truck Series action resumes at the Madison, Illinois speedway on Saturday, June 13.

Race Rewind: 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. The No. 17 Tundra received damage in a multi-truck incident on lap one, and when Peters was able to return to the race track he was six laps down to the leader. The No. 17 team continued to make adjustments and with patience and perseverance, climbed back into the top 15. Scored with a 14th-place finish, Peters left Kansas Speedway second in the championship point standings, eight points behind leader Matt Crafton.


On rallying to a top-15 finish at Kansas Speedway after a night of unfortunate events... "That wasn't how we imagined our night would go at Kansas [Speedway]. We went there feeling optimistic after a solid test at Charlotte [Motor Speedway]. To have everything go wrong on the first lap was frustrating, but this team never threw in the towel. We just kept at it and finished the race. We have a lot of racing left this season, and we're ready to compete at Charlotte Motor Speedway this weekend."

On being in contention for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Championship and the team's momentum heading to Charlotte Motor Speedway... "I feel like we're off to an incredible start this season, despite a few bumps in the road. I've got a hardworking team behind me who have worked hard to build me great trucks each weekend. We're sitting second in the points and I feel confident that we'll be in contention for this championship at the end of the season."
