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."
