Thoughts on the last NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race of 2005: "I am pretty confident going into the last race of the year. I think that I have halfway met my expectations for the year. We have had some bumps in the road but the little ones we have are to be expected considering that I am rookie driver. I have definitely learned a lot over the course of the 2005 season and I am looking forward to going to Homestead and applying what I have learned and trying to get a good finish for the folks from Bailey's and all my teammates at Bobby Hamilton Racing."
Building Momentum: "I have really learned a lot over the last few races. We went to Martinsville and got a top ten finish and then we went to Atlanta and got an education on the draft and how these trucks move around in the air. If I can apply that in Homestead and we can unload this Bailey's Dodge in good form then I am confident we can be very competitive. It is the last race and while I don't want to tear up our truck, I am going in with a winner take all attitude. I would really like to finish up my first year with another good finish and I am confident that we can accomplish that."
Timothy Peters will make his 16th career NCTS start at Homestead.
Peters registered his best NCTS finish at Dover on June 4th coming home in the sixth position.
Peters is currently 2nd in the NCTS Raybestos Rookie of the Year chase, 75 points behind Todd Kluever.
Peters will pilot the BHR chassis "Rocket" this weekend at Homestead. It will be "Rocket's" 11th NCTS start. The chassis ran at Charlotte, Kentucky, Memphis, IRP, Nashville, Bristol, Richmond, Las Vegas, Martinsville and Atlanta with Peters behind the wheel.
Peters registered his second top-ten finish of the year at Martinsville Speedway. He started 8th and finished 8th in the Kroger 200.
A Word of Thanks: "If it wasn't for Mac Bailey and the Bailey's family I would be where I am today so I owe them a debt of gratitude. Bobby Hamilton didn't have to put me in this truck for this year and so I appreciate his willingness to go with a rookie and hopefully he sees something out of our performance this year. This sport is tough enough, if you don't have people that believe in you then you will never make it. Thankfully I have had people that were willing to take a chance on me and that will help me for my entire career."
