Timothy Peters came to Pocono Raceway on Saturday afternoon with one goal in mind - to redeem the No. 17 Parts Plus Toyota Tundra finish from last year's early dismissal. Qualifying was cancelled due to early morning rain which assigned the drivers by practice speeds from Friday afternoon.
Peters started 18th which in no way was indicative of what this Toyota Tundra was capable of. Crew chief Butch Hylton did a complete makeover of the suspension and from the green flag, Peters was able to start advancing his position. Nearing the top-10 at the half-way mark, green-flag pit stops were underway. The Parts Plus driver fought loose conditions for the remainder of the race and ended up a respectable 14th-place. Post race, the crew discovered that the right front shock absorber had failed and undoubtedly had kept the truck from finishing significantly higher.
Timothy Peters talks about his finish at Pocono Raceway:
"It was a long race for our Parts Plus Tundra team. We brought a brand new chassis here and we just couldn't get a hold of our setup. We will move forward and go onto Michigan."
