Race Rewind: Martinsville… After a tough weekend at Martinsville Speedway, Timothy Peters and the No. 17 Red Horse Racing team earned a fifth-place finish in the Texas Roadhouse 200. When the green flag fell, Peters slowly began to make his way toward the front, still fighting the balance of the red and white machine. Visiting pit road for four tires, fuel and adjustments for a final time on lap 149, Peters restarted in 12th, as several teams ahead took only two tires. During several cautions as laps wound down, Peters used his knowledge of his home track and prowess at restarts to continue to gain positions and cross the finish line in fifth.

Timothy Peters Quote:
On racing at Texas Motor Speedway…
“I’m looking forward to getting back to Texas (Motor Speedway). We ran well there in the summer. We’re on a little bit of a hot streak right now, I feel like, with how consistent we’ve been, so I just hope to ride that momentum with our Tundra in to Texas and get locked in to the Championship 4 at Homestead. If we’re not able to win, hopefully we can come out of there with a good finish like we did this past weekend at Martinsville (Speedway).”

Race Rewind: Martinsville… It was a 16th-place finish for Matt Tifft after 200 laps at the Martinsville Speedway. Once the green flag flew, Tifft and the No. 11 BrainGear/Surface Sunscreen Toyota Tundra wrestled with a tight condition in the center of each corner, and dealt with a significant chatter in the front tires. On the opening run the left front tire was worn to the cords, and Tifft found himself in 19th by the first caution on lap 51. Tifft ran inside the top-20 for most the event until he was involved in a lap 177 caution in turn 2, and sustained damage to the nose of his Tundra. After pitting for repairs under caution, Tifft lined up 17th on the final restart on lap 183. Over the final 18 circuits, Tifft picked up one position and took the checkered flag 16th.

“I’m excited to get to Texas (Motor Speedway). I’ve raced there in the Xfinity Series, but never the trucks. We had a good run with this Tundra at Charlotte earlier this year, so I’m hoping we can duplicate that result this weekend and get a good finish.”
