* Carrying Momentum to Kentucky...Timothy Peters has just three races behind the wheel of the #17 Strutmasters.com Toyota Tundra for Red Horse Racing and each one has been impressive. Peters brought home an eighth place finish at Michigan International Speedway in his first outing with the new team. He backed that up with a top-10 run in Milwaukee, but didn't get the finish he was looking for thanks to an ill-timed caution that came out just as Peters was making his green flag pit stop. The #17 Strutmasters.com rallied again in Memphis and brought home a seventh place finish after running consistently in the top-10 for all 201 laps. The momentum that is building from these three races should pay off for the #17 team in Kentucky. They are setting their sights on a fight for the checkered flag.

* Peters at Kentucky...The Built Ford Tough 225 will mark Timothy Peters fourth Camping World Truck Series start at Kentucky Speedway. In three previous starts in 2005, 2006, and 2008 Peters finished 28th, 25th and 19th respectively. He also earned a top-10 start in 2006 when he started from the 10th position.

Timothy Peters on racing at Kentucky Speedway "I like Kentucky Speedway. We have practiced well and raced well there but it seems like something always happens in the race and we don't have the results to show for it. We are taking the same truck we raced in Michigan and I'm really excited about that. The truck was really good and we earned an eighth place finish so I'm hoping to improve our Michigan results at Kentucky."

Crew Chief Chad Kendrick on Kentucky Speedway "I am really looking forward to Kentucky. We are racing the same truck we raced at Michigan and that is something Timothy is really excited about because he really liked the feel and the aero balance of that truck in Michigan. Kentucky hasn't been the best track for us but we are hoping for a big turnaround this weekend. I think we have a shot a getting a great finish and racing for a win."

Equipment Information Timothy Peters will compete with chassis # 138 in the Built Ford Tough 225 at Kentucky Speedway. This is the same chassis he drove at Michigan International Speedway where he started 18th and finished eighth.
