TIMOTHY PETERS, No. 17 Strutmasters.com Toyota Tundra, Red Horse Racing
How has the transition been to Red Horse Racing? "It's been real smooth. Everyone from Red Horse Racing, Strutmasters.com and Toyota has been awesome. I can't describe these guys working on the trucks day in and day out. It goes beyond the hard work that they've put in. We're off to a great start with this team over here. I have always tried to surround myself with great people, and I am surrounded by great people right now. Tom DeLoach (team owner) has put together a great team, and I'm lucky to be a part of it."
MIKE SKINNER, No. 5 Exide Batteries Toyota Tundra, Randy Moss Motorsports
Can you get back into the championship points race? "If we run like we've been running -- of course we can. Right now, the KHI stuff with (Ron) Hornaday, Jr. -- they are in their own zip code. I've said it again, these guys (at Randy Moss Motorsports) have done a lot with a fourth of the amount of money it takes to do this right. I'm very proud of these guys."
