There are a lot of tired jokes about NASCAR drivers only making left-hand turns, but this was certainly not true for Timothy Peters and the No. 17 Parts Plus Toyota Tundra. Peters qualified for the 64-lap race in the 15th-place placing him in the middle of the pack. Over the years, Peters has distinguished himself as a driver that can patiently pick his way through traffic and being there at the end and he did just that.
Peters was running in the sixth place when crew chief Butch Hylton called him in for a pit stop. Fuel strategy is incredibly important in a race like this so Hylton put Peters in a good position to finish the race. Later while others pitted, the Parts Plus Tundra was able to stay out picking up eight positions. Peters skillfully made his way right around the track and earned an eighth-place finish.
Timothy Peters talks about racing at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park:
"This race was all about survival. Our Parts Plus Tundra did well all day - it was better than I was. I went to school there for those 64-laps. We stayed out of trouble and no one was upset with me. We came home eighth with a top-10 finish and had a good points day. We'll go onto Iowa."
