This Week's NET10 Wireless Toyota Tundra at Bristol Motor Speedway... Germán Quiroga will be competing in chassis No. 008 in the UNOH 200 presented by ZLOOP at Bristol Motor Speedway on Wednesday, Aug. 20. This is the same Toyota Tundra that he drove to a top-10 finish at Charlotte Motor Speedway in May, and earned two top-five finishes with in 2013, at Texas Motor Speedway (June) and Pocono Raceway (August), finishing third in both races.

Quiroga at Bristol Motor Speedway... Quiroga has one previous start at Bristol Motor Speedway (August 2013) where he qualified fifth. In seven NASCAR Camping World Truck Series starts at short tracks (less than one mile in length) he has an average starting position of 7.6, an average finishing position of 12.7, and has earned one top-five, four top-10 finishes and one pole award (Iowa Speedway, 2013).

GERMÁN QUIROGA QUOTES:
On heading to Bristol Motor Speedway for the second time... "Last year was my first time racing at Bristol (Motor Speedway). We were really fast during practice and qualified really well; we just had a little bit of bad luck. I think this season we'll be able to finish with better results. We're definitely looking forward to racing there."

On short track racing... "I really enjoy short track racing. I always seem to do well at the smaller tracks because they seem to fit my driving style. Bristol (Motor Speedway) is such a historic track, and I'm looking forward to racing there under the lights."

Timothy Peters
No. 17 Red Horse Racing
Toyota Tundra

This Week's Red Horse Racing Toyota Tundra at Bristol Motor Speedway... Timothy Peters will be piloting chassis No. 020 in the UNOH 200 presented by ZLOOP at Bristol Motor Speedway on Wednesday, Aug. 20. This is the same Toyota Tundra that Red Horse Racing teammate Germán Quiroga drove at Texas Motor Speedway in June, and was a brand new addition to the Red Horse Racing stable in 2014.

Peters' History at Bristol Motor Speedway... In nine NASCAR Camping World Truck Series starts at Bristol Motor Speedway, Peters has earned one win (August 2012), three top-five, and five top-10 finishes. Last season he finished second at the half-mile race track after leading 125 laps. His average starting position since joining Red Horse Racing in 2009 is 9.4, with an average finishing position of 5.2.

Race Rewind: Michigan International Speedway... The No. 17 Fast Eddie's/Valvoline Toyota Tundra team brought home a top-10 finish at Michigan International Speedway. Peters was quick during both practice sessions and captured a third-place starting position in knock-out qualifying. The team remained steadily in the top-10 throughout the race, finishing seventh when the checkered flag dropped.

Take an Off-Road Test Ride With Timothy Peters... Peters will participate in a Q&A session and take fans on a test drive in Toyota trucks and SUV's at the Toyota Drive Center on Wednesday, Aug. 20 at 3 p.m. ET. The Drive Center is located in the Earhart Campground at Bristol Motor Speedway. Fans can come out for a chance to meet Peters and take a lap around the custom-built off-road course.

TIMOTHY PETERS QUOTES:
On his 2012 win at Bristol Motor Speedway and almost repeating in 2013... "We've had two great races at Bristol (Motor Speedway) the past two seasons, winning one race and coming home second after leading a bunch of laps the second race. I'm confident that we'll be able to have another successful race there this week."

On short track racing at Bristol Motor Speedway... "Man I love going to Bristol (Motor Speedway). There's nothing quite like good short track racing under the lights. I think the (NASCAR Camping World) Truck Series puts on a good show there, and the crowd is always great."
