Red Horse Racing at Daytona International Speedway

The 2017 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season kicked off in wild fashion at Daytona International Speedway for the NextEra Energy Solutions 250. Both the Red Horse Racing Toyota Tundras of Brett Moffitt and Timothy Peters led the field and were in contention at different points of the 100-lap event before being collected in on-track incidents. While Peters and Moffitt each led laps, their chances for victory came up short and they were credited with 17th and 22nd-place finishes, respectively.

Peters’ Bid for Second Daytona Win Comes up Short

Timothy Peters kicked off his 2017 campaign with another bid for victory at Daytona International Speedway, but was swept up in the final lap calamity that collected 12 trucks, and finished 17th in the NextEra Energy Resources 250. The 2010 Daytona winner began his weekend by posting the fifth-quickest lap in Thursday’s practice session, and qualifying fifth on Friday evening. From the outset, Peters asserted himself as one of the strongest trucks in the field, racing in and around the top five during the first 20-lap stage. Peters collected nine regular-season points by running second at the end of Stage 1, all while avoiding an accident on lap 20. Crew chief Chad Kendrick brought Peters to pit road for fuel only, and once again, he ran inside the top five until the end of Stage 2 at lap 40, collecting six additional points. A two-tire pit stop on lap 47 gained Peters the race lead, and he maintained his position inside the top five until a lap-72 caution. Peters suffered slight damage to the left-side door of his No. 17 Toyota Tundra in the incident, but remained a contender at the front of the field. The restart on lap 78 produced a single-file lead draft for the next 18 laps, during which Peters found himself comfortably in contention, running fifth. A caution on lap 96 bunched up the field for a two-lap sprint to the checkers. After restarting fifth, Peters made a three-wide bid for second on the final lap, but was collected in a multi-truck accident on the backstretch while running third. As a result of the accident, Peters was credited with a 17th-place finish.

Timothy Peters Quote:
“It just got wild there at the end. We got a good run on the outside and the next thing I know, the 27 (Ben Rhodes) came across in front of me. I know it’s just a racing deal, but I just hate that we got collected up in it with as hard as everybody worked on this Tundra in the off season. We came here to win, and we were in good position. We just got caught up in something that is a racing deal.”

Damage in Daytona Ends Moffitt’s Night Early

In the first race of the 2017 campaign, at Daytona International Speedway, Brett Moffitt had a strong showing in the No. 7 Toyota Tundra until damage from contact with another vehicle and then the retaining wall relegated him to a 22nd-place finish. After putting up the 11th-fastest practice time in the single rain-delayed practice on Thursday, the team found a problem with the carburetor and repaired it. On Friday afternoon, the 24-year-old from Grimes, Iowa advanced to the second round of single-truck qualifying and locked his Toyota Tundra into the sixth-place starting position. After the green flag flew for the NextEra Energy Resources 250, Moffitt used the outside lane to work his way to the front of the field and was leading just before the first stage came to an end on lap 20. Contact with another vehicle caused Moffitt to hit the inside wall, and the damage prevented him from continuing in the race, and he was left with a 22nd-place finish.

Red Horse Racing at Homestead-Miami Speedway

For the final race of the 2016 season, NASCAR Camping World Truck Series teams went far south to Miami, Florida and Homestead-Miami Speedway. On Friday, teams participated in two practice sessions in the morning. Matt Tifft, in the No. 11 BrainGear/Surface Sunscreen Toyota Tundra, posted the 16th and 17th fastest times, while Timothy Peters, in the No. 17 Red Horse Racing Toyota Tundra, was 11th and 18th on the board. Friday afternoon, the lineup for the 201-lap event was set with two rounds of single-truck, knockout qualifying. Neither Tifft or Peters transferred out of the first round, and Peters would start the race 13th, while Tifft rolled off from the 22nd position. Peters entered the evening as part of the inaugural NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Championship 4. The green flag waved, and Peters quickly began to move toward the front. Tifft encountered a vibration on his Toyota Tundra, and was forced to pit under green flag conditions, going a lap down, but the 20-year-old made up ground and finished on the lead lap in 12th. Following a loose wheel and a change in handling on his red-and-white Tundra, Peters finished the night in ninth, fourth in the Championship Chase.

Timothy Peters Earns Top-Ten Finish, Fourth-Place in Points Standings

Timothy Peters and the No. 17 Red Horse Racing team earned a ninth-place finish in the season-ending event at Homestead-Miami Speedway and a fourth-place result in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Chase. On Friday, teams participated in two practice sessions and Peters posted the 11th and 18th fastest times. Qualifying consisted of two rounds of single-truck, knockout qualifying, and Peters barely missed the final round, locking in the 13th starting spot. The green flag flew just after 8 p.m. and in race conditions Peters was quite happy with the balance of the red-and-white machine, moving into the top five by lap 12. On lap 15, crew chief Shane Huffman called Peters to pit road under caution and gave him four scuffed tires and fuel as well as an air pressure adjustment. Peters restarted in fourth, but did not like the balance of the Tundra with that set of tires. Under a caution on lap 42, Peters returned to pit road for four fresh tires and fuel, but still sought a different feel in the No. 17 Tundra. On lap 83, Peters visited pit road again, but trouble on the stop put him back in traffic. A few laps later, Peters reported a vibration, and when he returned to pit road under caution on lap 111 the team discovered that the right front tire was slightly loose. In the final laps, Peters battled intensely with two other Championship Chase contenders, but ultimately would cross the line in the ninth position, and finish fourth in the inaugural NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Championship Chase. In 2016, the Danville, Virginia native earned eight top-five and 16 top-10 finishes in 23 races. The fourth-place points finish is Peters’ second-best finish in eight years of full time competition.

“Everybody did a great job. One pit stop – it is what it is. These guys do a great job for me every week. All we wanted was a shot coming down here. We were so good when we initially fired off the start of the race. It never would come back, so I don’t know. I’ll be scratching my head a little bit, but all in all it’s still a great year for the Red Horse Racing team. Just so proud to be in this moment. It’s really surreal and we wanted to get that championship, but fourth isn’t too shabby.”

Tifft Rebounds For 12th-Place Finish in Homestead

In his second-career start at Homestead-Miami Speedway, Matt Tifft put a period on his 2016 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series campaign with a 12th-place finish. Tifft rallied from a loose wheel and regained a lap to claw his way back into contention by the end of the season’s finale. The Hinckley, Ohio native began his night from the 22nd position and wasted no time moving forward, entering the top-15 by lap 20. Shortly thereafter on lap 29, Tifft’s night would be threatened. A vibration forced him to make an unscheduled four-tire pit stop under green on lap 29, and from there, the rally from 32nd began. A fortuitous caution on lap 43 allowed him to take advantage of the wave around and rejoin the lead lap. With a 12-lap disadvantage on tires, Tifft muscled his BrainGear/Surface Sunscreen Toyota into the top-20 by lap 75. While he lost a lap to the leaders on lap 81, Tifft stayed in the Lucky Dog position until a lap 84 caution which brought him back into contention on the lead lap. After climbing his way to 14th, trouble on his final four-tire pit stop under yellow at lap 111 when another truck contacted Tifft’s front tire carrier, sent him back to 19th. The 20-year-old made the most of the season’s final restart on lap 115, completing four-wide passes and using every available lane on the progressively-banked surface to climb to 12th at the checkered flag. Tifft closed his 2016 NCWTS efforts with one top-five three top-10, and eight top-15 finishes in 10 starts.

Matt Tifft Quote:
“We started off just a little tight, but once we got rolling, we were pretty good tonight. We had the vibration. I’m not sure what it was, it started sparking and we were playing catch-up from there. It’s hard to come back from that. Then one of our guys got run into on pit road, and we didn’t have anything go our way in that department. I think we had top-five speed in our Brain Gear/ urface Sunscreen Toyota and could have gone up and played with those guys towards the front. It’s hard to capitalize on those things when you’re playing catch-up. Once again, we made a good finish out of a night that could have been worse. These guys at Red Horse Racing dig hard and we do everything we can to knock good finishes down. I’m glad we were able to come back and finish the season out on a solid note.”

Red Horse Racing at Phoenix International Raceway

For the penultimate race of the 2016 season and the final event in the Championship Chase Round of Six, NASCAR Camping World Truck Series teams went west to Phoenix, Arizona for the Lucas Oil 150 at Phoenix International Raceway. On Friday, teams participated in two practice sessions, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. Matt Tifft, in the No. 11 BrainGear/Surface Sunscreen Toyota Tundra, posted the 11th and 16th fastest times, while Timothy Peters, in the No. 17 Red Horse Racing Toyota Tundra, was ninth and 17th on the board. Friday evening, the lineup for the 150-lap event was set with three rounds of knockout, group qualifying. Tifft transferred to the second round and earned the 17th starting spot while fighting a free condition, and Peters advanced to the final round to earn the eighth spot on the grid. The green flag fell, and during a rash of early cautions, Peters worked his way into the top five, battling for every position and point in the Championship Chase. The handling of the No. 11 Tundra improved as conditions changed and Tifft drove his way to an eighth-place finish. Peters would finish the night in fifth, earning a spot in the Championship Four to compete for the series title at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

Timothy Peters Finishes Fifth, Earns Spot in Championship Four

Timothy Peters and the No. 17 Red Horse Racing team earned a fifth-place finish in the Lucas Oil 150 at Phoenix International Raceway and a berth in the Championship Four in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Chase. In two practice sessions early in the day on Friday, Peters fought a tight Toyota Tundra and posted the ninth and 17th fastest times. In three rounds of knockout, group qualifying, Peters transferred to the final round and secured the eighth spot in the starting lineup. The 150-lap event began with a series of caution flags, where Peters encountered a tight Toyota Tundra, and crew chief Shane Huffman counseled him to save fuel. Huffman called him to pit road under caution on lap 65 for four Goodyear tires, Sunoco fuel and a wedge adjustment. Following the stop, the balance on the red-and-white Tundra shifted to free and Peters climbed as high as third as he battled to earn a spot in the Championship Four, even as his Tundra tightened up. On the final restart with four laps to go, Peters held on to a top-five finish and earned the final seed in the Championship Four to battle for the NCWTS Championship at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

This is a pretty cool moment to sit up here, myself and Christopher (Bell) and then Matt (Crafton) and Johnny (Sauter) running for a championship – to be involved with the first Chase is pretty cool. This one goes to the men and women of Red Horse Racing – Shane Huffman and all the crew guys, the road guys – they work their butts off and the Lord has really blessed us for sure. We’ve been lucky a lot of times and maybe finished some races that we probably shouldn’t have. Homestead is a pretty decent track for us so I’m looking forward to going down there and seeing what we’ve got.”

Top-10 for Matt Tifft in Phoenix

Matt Tifft and the No. 11 BrainGear/Surface Sunscreen team wrapped up the Round of Six with an eighth-place finish at the Phoenix International Raceway on Friday night. The result is Tifft’s third top-10 finish of the season. Tifft rode the seesaw between a tight and loose balance in two practices, where he was 11th and 16th-fastest, respectively. Tifft struggled with a free condition in qualifying after the sun went down, but came alive once it was time to race. After a rash of four caution flags flew in the first 26 circuits, Tifft quickly ascended from his 17th-place starting spot into the top 10 by lap 56. Once crew chief Scott Zipadelli brought the 20-year-old to pit road under a lap 64 caution, no chassis adjustments were necessary, as most of Tifft’s handling issues from practice had subsided. As cautions blanketed the race’s second half, with the longest green flag run ending after 31 laps, Tifft maneuvered his way into eighth by lap 140 thanks to the neutral handing condition of his Tundra. The final caution flew on lap 141, which set up a four-lap dash to the checkers, during which Tifft maintained the eighth position to collect his third top-10 finish in nine starts this season.

Matt Tifft Quote:
“We needed a night like this, smooth and solid in the top-10 and these No. 11 guys put a great BrainGear/Surface Sunscreen Tundra underneath me. I’m proud to be a part of the whole effort this Red Horse Racing team has put in all season. We were a little on the free side tonight, but were pretty close to neutral and that helped us to get rolling on a couple of those longer runs. In this series, fourth (position) on back is so tight and competitive, you could interchange a lot of those trucks based on pure speed, so it was nice to take advantage of restarts and gain some positions when we had the opportunity. Overall, we had a great night. Zippy (Scott Zipadelli) and the guys fought hard all night, and I can’t wait to get to Homestead and finish the year out with another strong effort.”

Timothy Peters Finishes 14th in Texas

After battling a poor handling Toyota Tundra and a speeding penalty, Timothy Peters earned a 14th-place finish at Texas Motor Speedway in the Striping Technology 350. Two practice sessions were scheduled for Thursday, but were postponed due to inclement weather to one session on Friday morning, where the Danville, Virginia native was 15th fastest. In two rounds of single-truck, knockout qualifying on Friday afternoon, Peters transferred to the second round and earned the sixth starting position. When the green flag waved for 147 laps, Peters encountered a very free red and white Toyota Tundra. On lap 40, the caution flag flew and crew chief Shane Huffman called Peters to pit road for four Goodyear tires, Sunoco fuel and adjustments. NASCAR issued the team a penalty for speeding on pit road, and Peters was sent to restart at the tail end of the field. After restarting in 20th, he was still fighting a free handling condition. Following another four-tire pit stop under caution on lap 84, Peters lined up in 15th and continued to fight the balance of the Red Horse Racing Tundra. Visiting pit road for four tires, fuel and further adjustments for a final time on lap 127, Peters restarted in 10th after a quick stop by the pit crew. In the closing laps, Peters, unable to find speed early in a run, was mired in traffic and crossed the finish line in 14th. Next week, the series visits Phoenix International Raceway, where Peters is the defending winner, for the final race in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Championship Chase Round of Six.

“Track position was important, but we just never could go. The initial run for about the first five laps was probably our best run all night. I didn’t do a good job managing my speed, I thought I did and I put us in a box with the first pit stop by speeding on pit road. The crew did a great job getting me back up there, but I never could go. What we would gain on pit road I would lose on the race track. It’s a little frustrating for sure, but everyone worked hard on our Red Horse Racing Tundra and we’re on the outside looking in right now, but we’re going to a place next week where we’ve won before and whatever happens, happens.”

Matt Tifft Records 17th-place finish at Texas Motor Speedway

Matt Tifft’s first-career NASCAR Camping World Truck Series start at Texas Motor Speedway concluded with a 17th place finish at the drop of the checkered flag. Tifft began the day by posting the third-quickest time in the only practice session, and followed that up by advancing to the pole round of qualifying, earning the fourth spot on the starting grid in the No. 11 Waste Connections Inc. Toyota Tundra. From the outset, the 147-lap contest had a green-flag flavor, and was only slowed three times by the caution clock. As track conditions changed under the lights, Tifft immediately battled an extremely loose condition through both corners, and came to pit road running 13th at the race’s first caution on lap 40. Crew chief Scott Zipadelli offered air pressure, wedge, track bar, and spring rubber adjustments, to rectify Tifft’s handling conditions. By lap 80, Tifft went down a lap to the race leaders, still fighting the same balance characteristics, but earned the Lucky Dog free pass to regain his lap on the race’s second caution on lap 83. The following run would play out the same way for Tifft and the No. 11 team, losing a lap and receiving the Lucky Dog award on the final caution on lap 126. Over the final 18-lap dash to the checkers, Tifft gained a position and collected a 17th-place finish. With one race remaining in the Round of Six, the No. 11 team is positioned 15 points behind the cutoff in the Owners’ Chase Grid.

Matt Tifft Quote:
“Every week, these No. 11 guys never quit working to get our trucks better, and we tried a lot of things tonight, but never hit on the right balance. We had good speed in our Tundra in practice and qualifying earlier today, but when the sun went down, we were way too free to contend up towards the front. We wanted to give all the folks from Waste Connections, Inc. something to cheer for tonight, but we kept our heads in the game to stay on the lead lap and keep ourselves in the mix in the Owners’ Chase. We’ll unload at Phoenix next week, see what we have, and race for a top-five finish and hopefully get ourselves into the final four at Homestead.”

NASCAR Camping World Truck Series teams visited Martinsville Speedway for the first race of the Round of 6 in the Chase for the Championship. On Friday, two practice sessions were held and Matt Tifft returned to the No. 11 Surface Sunscreen/BrainGear Toyota Tundra and posted the 18th fastest lap in each session. Timothy Peters struggled with the balance of the No. 17 Toyota Tundra and posted the 20th fastest lap in the first, and was 15th on the board in the second. On Saturday morning, teams returned for three rounds of knock-out, group qualifying and Tifft transferred into the final round, then secured the ninth starting spot, while Peters earned the 19th starting spot in the second round. In the afternoon, the green flag flew for 200 laps at the “paperclip,” and Peters began to make his way to the front. Tifft dropped back early in the race due to a worn tire, then was involved in an incident, but still earned a 16th-place finish. Peters struggled with an ill-handling Tundra and traffic, but the veteran driver used his experience at the .526-mile facility to persevere and earn a solid fifth-place finish.

This is one of my favorite tracks and Red Horse Racing has had a lot of success here, so hopefully we can put together a good run and come out of there in a good position in the owners’ standings.”

Champ Jeg Coughlin Jr. edged by a fender in first round of Reading race
READING, Pa. (Oct. 2) — Jeg Coughlin Jr. managed to keep his sense of humor despite a first-round loss to longtime rival and fellow multi-time world champion Greg Anderson at Sunday’s 32nd annual Dodge NHRA Nationals.

“Traditionally, at least this year, Greg is usually a car length ahead of me by the time I get into high gear,” Coughlin said with a wry smile. “Today we had a nice launch and went through the gears really efficiently and I peeked over and didn’t see him at all. I was pleasantly surprised to experience that for a moment.” Continue reading Champ Jeg Coughlin Jr. edged by a fender in first round of Reading race
