* Peters at Kentucky...The Built Ford Tough 225 will mark Timothy Peters' fifth career start at Kentucky Speedway. Last year, Peters earned his first top-five at the track when he brought home a fourth place finish after starting ninth. It also marked his first top-five of the 2009 season.

* Bringing Back "Coon Dog"...Chassis #138 became Peters' favorite truck the first time he got behind the wheel and in the dozens of races he has piloted #138 the results reveal why. Out of 17 races so far this season, Peters has raced #138 in seven of them and has finished in the top-10 six times, including three top-fives. Peters dubbed his favorite chassis "Coon Dog" early in the season and the name just seemed to stick.

* Tight Points Battle...Proving just how close the Camping World Truck Series driver point standings are, after a blown engine relegated Peters to a 21st place finish at Kentucky, he slipped back to the fourth spot in the point standings. Don't count Peters out just yet, he is only 22 points out of third place and only 157 points separate the second spot from the seventh spot.

Timothy Peters on racing at Kentucky Speedway "I'm really looking forward to getting back to Kentucky. It's where I got my first top-five finish of the season last year so I have all the confidence in the world that we can repeat that performance. As the season is winding down, the points battle is getting tighter and tighter. We can't afford to have any more issues so we are very focused as a team to get top-10 finishes each week and work our way back up in the standings and of course we want to get back to Victory Lane before the year is out."

Jeff Hensley on racing at Kentucky Speedway "I love Kentucky. I've had some really great runs there in the past so it's one of my favorite tracks. Kentucky used to have a really rough surface that was difficult to get the right set-up for but they have ground it down and made it a whole lot smoother so it will be a lot different than last year. After last week we need a good finish to get us back on track. Hopefully we can be up there at the front fighting for the win at the end of the race"

Equipment Information Timothy Peters will compete with chassis #138 in the Built Ford Tough 225 at Kentucky Speedway. This chassis was last raced at Darlington Raceway where Peters started from the pole and finished second.
