Timothy Peters
No. 17 Red Horse Racing
Toyota Tundra

This Week’s Toyota Tundra at Chicagoland Speedway… Timothy Peters will pilot chassis No. 023 from the Red Horse Racing stable on Friday in the American Ethanol e15 225. This chassis was last used by Peters at Michigan International Speedway where he led 42 laps and recorded a second-place finish.

Peters at Chicago… Peters has recorded seven starts at Chicagoland Speedway and has two top-five and three top-10 finishes. He has an average starting position of 13.9 and an average finishing position of 13.9.

Race Rewind: Canada… In the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series’ fourth trek north of the border to Canadian Tire Motorsports Park (CTMP), Timothy Peters had transmission issues just past the halfway point, which foiled a top-five run, and handed Peters and his Red Horse Racing team an 18th-place finish in the 64-lap event. Crew chief Shane Huffman would not call Peters to pit road until lap 24, when Peters would come in for four Goodyear tires and Sunoco fuel. Huffman’s strategy would have Peters visit pit road once more for fuel only under green on lap 34. That fuel strategy netted Peters the fourth position by lap 40, but he fell victim to transmission woes shortly thereafter on lap 43, losing third gear completely. The veteran driver nursed his No. 17 Red Horse Racing Toyota Tundra home in 18th. With one race before the Chase, the 18th-place result keeps Peters in the eighth position on the Chase grid, 32 points ahead of the cutoff.

Timothy Peters Quote:
On racing at Chicagoland Speedway…
“With the way our momentum and our speed has been on the bigger tracks, we all feel confident going in that we can continue that success. It would be nice if we could go there and win and lock in (The Chase) for sure on the last race. Shane (Huffman, crew chief) and the guys are going to keep doing what we’ve been doing and however the cards are dealt is how it will be and we’ll go on to Loudon from there.”
