OFF TO THE MIDWEST: The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series will take its first trip to a Midwestern state for the fourth race of the season at Kansas Speedway. Timothy Peters and his Red Horse Racing team made great strides during the 2012 season on their 1.5-mile track program. But there is still one trophy missing from the trophy case – an intermediate track win. This weekend, Peters and his No. 17 Parts Plus Toyota Tundra team will utilize the notes they gained from 2012 and the research and development during the off season in hopes to secure the top podium spot. PROUD PARTNER – PARTS PLUS: Timothy Peters No. 17 Toyota Tundra will once again proudly represent the Parts Plus brand featuring the orange and red color paint scheme at Kansas Speedway. The primary sponsorship has been activated throughout the first three races of the season and president of the Automotive Distribution Network, Mike Lambert is thrilled for the opportunity. “Mainstream exposure like this to one of the most enthusiastic fan bases in racing is a tremendous opportunity for the brand, further enhancing the professional image of our Parts Plus members, auto stores and Car Care Centers nationwide.” CHASSIS HISTORY: Timothy Peters and his No. 17 Toyota Tundra team will break in brand new Red Horse Racing chassis No. 010 this weekend at Kansas. The newly constructed chassis just rolled out of the body shop with specialized craftsmanship for the team’s 1.5-mile program. REARVIEW MIRROR – ROCKINGHAM: Timothy Peters and the No. 17 Parts Plus Toyota Tundra started today’s race in the 20th position but was prepared to work his way back to the lead by doing what he does best – working through the pack and making a move toward the end. Peters fought both tight and loose conditions depending on the line he chose around the race track. Crew chief Butch Hylton and the No. 17 Parts Plus team were battling the worn out surface at The Rock to get Peters Tundra to the front of the field. Just as Peters was making a move catching those in the top-10 an accident occurred ending his day with a 26th place finish. Timothy Peters talks about Kansas Speedway: The organization worked really hard on the 1.5-mile package last season with great gains. What are you still looking to achieve this season? “A win. That’s it. We’ve worked harder as an organization starting from the top with Tom DeLoach, Terry Cook, and Butch (Hylton, crew chief) all the way back to the fab shop. This season we know we will really benefit from having Mike Beam and Dan Stillman on board because they are really knowledgeable. We are still looking for that win but I am confident that we will find it this season. A win at a 1.5-mile track is the only type that eludes Red Horse Racing. What will it take to win at Kansas? “We’ve shown that we are capable of a win on 1.5.-mile tracks. It’s important for me as the Parts Plus Toyota Tundra driver to get information back to Butch. We know we’ve worked hard on bodies and chassis, but it’s all about balance. Some places we had it and some we haven’t. But it sure wasn’t from lack of effort. It’s a combination of lots of little things that will make us better in the end.”
