2014 Bowmanville: Red Horse Racing NASCAR Truck Race Recap

Red Horse Racing at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park

NASCAR Camping World Truck Series teams traveled north of the border to Bowmanville, Ontario for their second visit to Canadian Tire Motorsport Park. The Red Horse Racing teams were both fast off the truck, posting top-10 practice speeds in the first session with Germán Quiroga at the top of the chart with a fast lap of 81.239 seconds, and the No. 77 OtterBox Toyota Tundra team second-fastest in the second session. Both teams advanced to the final round of knockout qualifying, with Quiroga earning the fourth starting position, and Timothy Peters the ninth. The No. 17 Red Horse Racing team and Peters battled back to a 10th-place finish following a pit road penalty. Quiroga was a contender for the win throughout the 64-lap event and battled neck-in-neck in an epic finish, earning a second-place result with a 0.05-second margin.

Germán Quiroga Finishes Second by 0.05-Second Margin at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park

Germán Quiroga finished second at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park on Sunday, August 31, in what is the second-closest finish in all three of NASCAR's national series at a road course, with a 0.05 second margin of victory. The No. 77 OtterBox Toyota Tundra team was the group to beat all weekend after leading the first practice and finishing second in the final practice. The team advanced to the final round of knock-out qualifying, where they secured a fourth-place starting position for the NASCAR 250 with a lap time of 81.057 seconds. The Mexico City native is no stranger to road course racing, having started his motorsports career making left and right turns, which gave him plenty of confidence for the start of the race on Sunday afternoon. The racing was competitive from the moment the green flag was displayed, and the No. 77 team battled within the top-five positions throughout the first half of the race. During the first pit stop of the day crew chief Butch Hylton called for fuel only, which allowed Quiroga to take the top spot once the leader came to pit road. He remained in the top three for the remainder of the 64-lap event, leading a total of eight circuits. Quiroga battled side-by-side for the lead coming to the checkered flag, taking home the runner-up position for what was one of the most exiting finishes of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season. This marks Quiroga's ninth top-10 finish in 2014 and second runner up finish. He currently sits fifth in driver points in the fight for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Championship, 11 points behind fourth place.

Germán Quiroga Quote:
"Everybody at Red Horse Racing did a fantastic job to put together a winning truck for me and we came home second; it hurts. We've come so close so many times but we just have to keep on trying. We can't come any closer than we did today. That was a great finish. I tried to pass him without wrecking and we just came up short. I have to thank OtterBox and NET10 Wireless for all of their support. Hopefully I can get that first win for them and for my team soon!"

Timothy Peters Earns Top-10 Finish at
Canadian Tire Motorsport Park

Timothy Peters and the No. 17 team traveled north of the border this weekend as the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series made its second visit to the Bowmanville, Ontario-based road course, Canadian Tire Motorsport Park. Showing speed during the two practice sessions on Saturday morning, Peters qualified the Red Horse Racing Toyota Tundra in the ninth position. The team returned on Sunday confident they had a quality machine that could move to the front. In the early laps following the green flag, varying pit strategy was evident up and down pit road. After climbing to the seventh spot, crew chief Marcus Richmond called Peters in for a fuel-only, green-flag pit stop on lap 12. Peters was forced to return to pit road the following lap to serve a penalty and the team opted to also put on four new Goodyear tires while there. Back in the 21st position but on the lead lap, Peters retained his rhythm, turning fast laps around the 2.459-mile facility. He slowly and patiently climbed through the field and moved into the 13th spot before the field cycled through their final green-flag pit stops. Late race cautions gave the veteran driver the opportunity to regain additional positions, and he battled his way back to tenth, where he took the checkered flag.

Timothy Peters Quote:
"We had a great Toyota Tundra here (at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park) this weekend. The guys did a great job putting this truck together, and it showed. Unfortunately we had an issue on pit road that set us back a little, but we were able to rebound like a championship caliber team does for a top-10 finish. I am really proud of everyone's effort today, and look forward to coming back here next year."


Following a weekend off, the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series will return to action Friday, September 12 at Chicagoland Speedway. The 15th race of the 2014 season is scheduled to be televised live on FOX Sports 1 at 8:30 p.m. Eastern Time. The NASCAR 225 will also be broadcast live on the Motor Racing Network and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio, channel 90.
