2014 Iowa: Red Horse Racing NASCAR Truck Race Recap

Red Horse Racing at Iowa Speedway

All eyes were on the Newton, Iowa sky when the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series teams arrived at Iowa Speedway for the July 11 American Ethanol 200 presented by Enogen. With inclement weather in the Friday forecast, it was not a question of if it would rain, but rather when. Teams were able to complete the first practice session, with Timothy Peters logging the third-fastest speed and Germán Quiroga the 10th. The inevitable showers forced the cancellation of final practice; however, qualifying took place as scheduled. Both Red Horse Racing teams advanced to the final round of qualifying with Peters earning the third-place starting position and Quiroga the tenth. Both drivers remained steadfast in the top 10 until a lap-61 incident left the No. 17 Toyota Tundra heavily damaged and in the garage for repairs. Quiroga persevered to a top-five finish, while Peters was relegated to a 31st-place result.

Germán Quiroga Earns Top-Five Finish at Iowa Speedway, Moves to Fourth in Championship Point Standings

Germán Quiroga rallied to a fifth-place finish in the American Ethanol 200 presented by Enogen at Iowa Speedway, earning his seventh top-10 finish in nine NASCAR Camping World Truck Series starts this season. The No. 77 OtterBox Toyota Tundra was quick during the first practice session on Friday, July 11, finishing 10th. As the day progressed, weather became an issue for the competitors at the Newton, Iowa race track, causing the second practice session of the day to be cancelled. Quiroga ran a fast lap during the first round of knock-out qualifying, finishing fourth and advancing to the final round, where he secured a 10th-place starting spot for the race. Once the green flag dropped, Quiroga commented over the radio that the handling on his Toyota Tundra was too loose. His crew chief, Butch Hylton, urged him to keep the truck as steady as possible until the competition caution came out on lap 45. An incident on the track however, brought out the yellow flag on lap 39, and the team was able to make adjustments to improve the handling of the No. 77 black and yellow machine. Quiroga remained in the top-10 throughout the rest of the 200-lap race, and an excellent effort by his pit crew during a pit stop on lap 129 allowed him to restart in the fourth position and ultimately take the checkered flag in fifth. This is the Mexico City, native's second top-five finish of the season; earning his the first at Gateway Motorsports Park in June where he finished second. Quiroga is currently fourth in the Camping World Truck Series championship point standings, 19 points behind the leader.

Germán Quiroga Quote:
"It was a good night for us at Iowa (Speedway). We earned another top-five finish and moved up to fourth in the point standings. The entire OtterBox team worked really hard tonight and the pit crew had some great stops that helped us throughout the race. I can't thank my entire team enough and my sponsors OtterBox and NET10 Wireless for their support. I know that first win is coming soon."

A Disappointing Night for Timothy Peters at Iowa Speedway

After winning the last two consecutive July NASCAR Camping World Truck Series events at Iowa Speedway, a three-peat was not in the cards for Red Horse Racing and Timothy Peters. After posting the third-fastest lap in the only practice session for the day due to the inclement weather, the Danville, Virginia resident advanced to the final round of knockout qualifying to earn the third starting position for the American Ethanol 200 presented by Enogen. Shortly after the green flag was displayed, Peters settled into the fifth position. He reported to crew chief Marcus Richmond that the red and white Toyota Tundra was handling a little on the tight side. The No. 17 Red Horse Racing pit crew serviced the truck with four tires, fuel and a chassis adjustment during the first pit stop of the night while under caution on lap 41. The second caution flag of the night was displayed when a truck spun in Turn 2. Following the restart, Peters was battling for position on Lap 61 when he made contact with another truck. He sustained adequate damage and drove to the garage where the Richmond-led team went to work to make the needed repairs and replace the radiator before returning him to the track, 60 laps down to the leader. Peters was scored in the 31st position when the checkered flag flew at the Newton, Iowa race track.

Timothy Peters Quote:
"It was just one of those racing things tonight. We thought we were clear, and we made contact with the No. 30. Marcus (Richmond, crew chief) and the No. 17 guys worked hard and fast to get us back out on the track. We'll just move forward and focus on our next race at Eldora (Speedway)."


The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series returns to action on July 23 to do battle on the dirt of Eldora Speedway. The 10th race of the 2014 season is scheduled to be televised live on FOX Sports 1 at 9 p.m. Eastern Time. The 1-800 CarCash Midsummer Classic will also be broadcast live on the Motor Racing Network and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio, channel 90.
