2014 Bristol: Red Horse Racing NASCAR Truck Race Recap

The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series traveled to Bristol Motor Speedway for the UNOH 200 presented by ZLOOP this week. Inclement weather postponed, and limited teams to a single practice session on Wednesday afternoon, where Timothy Peters and Germán Quiroga finished seventh and 13th, respectively. During knock-out qualifying, Peters turned the 20th-quickest lap and Quiroga advanced to the final session where he qualified the No. 77 Toyota Tundra in the sixth position. Rain began to fall shortly after driver introductions and forced NASCAR officials to postpone the race until Thursday morning. The No. 77 NET10 Wireless team finished 14th in the 200-lap event, and the No. 17 Red Horse Racing Toyota Tundra received damage in an early on-track incident and finished in the 26th position.

Germán Quiroga Earns Top-15 Finish in Rain Delayed UNOH 200
at Bristol Motor Speedway

The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series teams took to the track early Thursday, August 21, for a rain delayed UNOH 200 presented by ZLOOP at Bristol Motor Speedway. The No. 77 NET10 Wireless team was forced to rely on only one practice session due to inclement weather on Wednesday morning, and after struggling to find the right set up, they were scored the13th fastest. Quiroga advanced to the second and final round of the knock-out qualifying session, where he earned a top-10 starting position, securing the sixth spot. Once weather delayed the start of the race, the teams knew that they would be faced with changed track conditions due to going from a night race to a day race. The sun was shining on Bristol Motor Speedway once the green flag dropped the following morning, and Quiroga found himself inside the top-five, but handling conditions of his Toyota Tundra quickly changed. Crew chief Butch Hylton called for four tires, fuel and a track bar adjustment for the blue and white machine in an effort to tighten the truck up. Quiroga remained in the top-10 for the majority of the 200-lap race. The team made a wedge adjustment during the final pit stop of the day, in an effort to give the Mexican-born driver a truck he could fight for positions with. Unfortunately, not enough laps remained in the race, and he was marked in the 14th position when the checkered flag was displayed.

Start - 6
Finish - 14
Driver Point Position - 6
Laps Led - 0

Germán Quiroga Quote:
"It was a complicated day for our NET10 Wireless team. We had a great qualifying effort of sixth, and I was battling in the top five when the race started, but as the day went on we slowly began to lose the balance of our Toyota Tundra. I can't thank all the Red Horse Racing guys enough for their hard work. I'm looking forward to doing some road course racing next weekend at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park."

On-Track Incident Damages No. 17 Red Horse Racing Toyota; Timothy Peters Finishes 26th at Bristol Motor Speedway

Timothy Peters and the No. 17 team have had Bristol Motor Speedway circled on the calendar all year. With a win in 2012 and a close second-place finish in 2013, the team was anxious to return to the 0.533-mile short track. Rain shortened the practice time on Wednesday, and limited the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series teams to a single session, where Peters turned in the seventh-fastest lap. However, following a 20th-place qualifying effort the No. 17 Red Horse Racing team opted to work on the impounded Toyota Tundra and start the UNOH from the rear of the 36-truck field. Rain delayed the start of the 200-lap race to the following morning. Under sunny skies the green flag was displayed and Peters climbed to 25th in the running order, but had nowhere to go when two trucks spun in front of him on lap 15. The red and white machine received front-end damage, requiring multiple visits to pit road for repairs. The Marcus Richmond-led team kept the veteran driver on the lead lap during the first caution period of the day. The damage created an extreme tight-handling condition, and Peters fought to maintain track position. The team worked throughout the morning to make additional repairs to offer reprieve during routine pit stops, but the tightness persisted, relegating the No. 17 team to a 26th-place finish.

Start - 20
Finish - 26
Driver Points Position - 8
Laps Led - 0

Timothy Peters Quote:
"This was not what we expected from ourselves here at Bristol (Motor Speedway). We've had such success here that this finish is a big disappointment to all of us. We just need to learn from it, not beat ourselves up or get down, and move forward."


The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series travels over the border to Canada and returns to road course action on Sunday, August 31 at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park. The 14th race of the 2014 season is scheduled to be televised live on FOX Sports 1 at 1:30 p.m. Eastern Time. The NASCAR 250 will also be broadcast live on the Motor Racing Network and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio, channel 90.
