2014: The Year of the (Red) Horse... Six races into the 2014 season, Red Horse Racing holds the fifth and sixth positions in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series driver championship point standings with drivers Timothy Peters and Germán Quiroga, respectively. The RHR teams have collectively claimed two top-five and 10 top-10 finishes this season.

Tenth Year of NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Competition... Following the 2005 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event at Charlotte Motor Speedway, Clean Line Motorsports became Red Horse Racing with new ownership. Seven races later, Red Horse Racing earned both its first pole award and win at Memphis Motorsports Park with Brandon Whitt behind the wheel of the No. 38 Toyota Tundra.

Qualifying for the seventh event on the 2014 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series schedule will air live Saturday, June 14 at 5 p.m. ET (4 p.m. CT) on FOX Sports 2.

Timothy Peters
No. 17 Red Horse Racing
Toyota Tundra

This Week's Red Horse Racing Toyota Tundra at Gateway Motorsports Park... Peters will be piloting chassis No. 001 in the Drivin' for Linemen 200 at Gateway Motorsports Park on Saturday, June 14. This is the same Toyota Tundra that he drove to a sixth-place finish in the Kroger 250 at Martinsville Speedway in March of this year.

Peters' History at Gateway Motorsports Park... Peters has four previous starts in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series at Gateway Motorsports Park, earning two top-10 finishes. The last time the series paid a visit to the Madison, Illinois race track was in July 2010, where Peters started seventh and finished sixth while driving for Red Horse Racing.

Cardinal for a Day... The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series driver traveled to St. Louis, Missouri in May where he threw out the first pitch at the Cardinals game against the Cubs. Peters also visited various media outlets while in Missouri to help promote the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series' return to Gateway Motorsports Park and the Drivin' for Linemen 200.

Race Rewind: Texas Motor Speedway... Peters arrived to the Lone Star State as the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Championship point's leader, and with high hopes of expanding the edge he had on the rest of the field. He ran mid-pack during both practice sessions, and earned a 15th-place starting position. When the green flag dropped, the No. 17 Red Horse Racing team made adjustments to give Peters a truck with which he could compete, and he quickly began to make up ground. Unfortunately, on lap 54 an oil spill from engine failure on the No. 77 truck caused Peters to go into the wall, ending his night in the 24th position, and moving him to fifth in the series' point standings.

TIMOTHY PETERS QUOTES:

On heading to Gateway Motorsports Park... "I'm excited about going back to Gateway [Motorsports Park]. It's a great short track with a lot of speed, and being a night race takes me back to the last two times I raced there under the lights. It's good to be back at a track that Missouri and Illinois race fans love, they always welcome us with open arms."

Rebounding from Texas... "We're looking to bounce back and gain some good momentum at Gateway [Motorsports Park] after a disappointing weekend in Texas. Even though we lost the points lead, we still have a lot of confidence as a team and I know we can be there again this season."

Germán Quiroga
No. 77 NET10 Wireless
Toyota Tundra

This Week's NET10 Wireless Toyota Tundra at Gateway Motorsports Park... German Quiroga will be driving chassis 003 in the Drivin' for Linemen 200 at Gateway Motorsports Park on Friday, June 14. This is the same Toyota Tundra that Brian Ickler drove to a top-10 finish at Martinsville Speedway earlier this season.

Quiroga at Gateway Motorsports Park... This will be the Mexico City native's first visit to Gateway Motorsports Park. The three-time NASCAR Toyota Series Mexico Champion has earned five top-10 finishes this season, and is currently sixth in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series point standings, 32 points out of the lead.

Karting with the Media... Quiroga will be participating in a karting event with local media at Gateway Motorsports Park on Friday, June 13, at 8:30 p.m. Central Time.

Race Rewind: Texas Motor Speedway... Quiroga returned to Texas Motor Speedway, home of his first top-five finish in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, eager to capture the checkered flag. The Mexico City native led the final practice session and qualified eighth in his NET10 Wireless Toyota Tundra. Once the green flag dropped he was running consistently in the top-10, but his engine expired on lap 54, ending his night early and giving him a 23rd-place finish.

GERMÁN QUIROGA QUOTES:

On heading to Gateway Motorsports Park... "I'm looking forward to racing at Gateway Motorsports Park. Even though it's a new track for me, it reminds me a lot of the tracks I raced at in the NASCAR Toyota Series Mexico. Hopefully I can apply some of that knowledge as well as my crew chief, Butch Hylton's, experience at Gateway to do well there."

On making up lost ground at Gateway Motorsports Park... "We're not as close to the points leader as we'd like to be after our race at Texas [Motor Speedway] but we'll keep doing what we've been doing all season, which is focusing on the big picture. Our goal is to be fighting for a championship at the end of the season, so we need to have consistent finishes each weekend and that's what we plan to do at Gateway."
