Camping World Trucks - Timothy Peters Preview
FIRST TIMER: In 2009, Timothy Peters joined Red Horse Racing (RHR) midway through the season at Michigan International Speedway. Up until that time Peters had enjoyed moderate success. However, it was not until his fourth race with RHR that he was able to break a very important threshold. It was at Kentucky Speedway where Peters earned his first Truck Series top-five finish when he brought home a fourth-place finish. Since that time, Peters has gone on to win two races at Martinsville (Va.) Speedway and Daytona (Fla.) International Raceway and continues to be a strong championship contender.
DID YOU KNOW?: Thus far in 2011 the average running position of the No. 17 truck throughout a race is 13.9.
KEEPING ON PACE: According to NASCAR loop data statistics Peters ranks fifth among drivers in the category of percentage of laps run on the lead lap. Of the 1,469 laps that have been completed in 2011, Peters has been on the lead lap 1,372 of them or 93.4 percent.
