Timothy Peters Anxious To Kick Off 2010 Season

* Peters Has Sights Set On The Championship In 2010...Since joining Red Horse Racing in June of 2009 just before the Michigan International Speedway race, Peters has racked up some very impressive stats. In 17 races, he earned 11-top 10 and five top-five finishes. He also made personal history picking up his first career top-five finish at Kentucky Speedway, his first career pole at Nashville Superspeedway and his first career win at his "hometrack" Martinsville Speedway. Peters finished eighth overall in the 2009 Camping World Truck Series driver point standings and has but one goal for 2010. After the race at Homestead-Miami Speedway, Peters wants to claim the top prize and hoist that trophy over his head for the first time!

* New Crew Chief For Peters...Veteran crew chief, Jeff Hensely joined the #17 Red Horse Racing team during the off-season. Hensley experienced success with Mike Skinner and most recently Brian Scott. With nine Camping World Truck Series wins under his belt, Hensley feels confident that he and Peters will be a fixture in Victory Lane this season.

* Peters At Daytona...The NextEra Energy Resources 250 will mark Timothy Peters third start at Daytona International Speedway. In 2006, Peters started 28th and finished 12th. Last February, Peters started 18th and raced his way to a sixth place finish. Peters completed all the laps possible in both events. Despite having only two starts at the "Great American Speedway," Peters says he is ready for the grueling 100-lap Chess game that Daytona International Speedway is famous for.

* K&N On Board... K&N will serve as the primary sponsor of the #17 at Daytona International Speedway. K&N Engineering is the inventor and leading innovator of reusable cotton gauze filter technology for automotive applications. From humble beginnings as a family run business over 40 years ago, K&N Engineering is now a truly global company with offices in the U.K. and the Netherlands.

* Crescent Tools On Board... The Crescent Tools logo will adorn the #17 Toyota Tundra as an associate sponsor for the entire 2010 season. The Crescent brand product line now consists not only of adjustable wrenches, but also a wide selection of other tools. These include, several styles of pliers, ratcheting wrenches, screwdrivers, and tool sets.

Timothy Peters on racing at Daytona International Speedway "We had a good run at Daytona last year so I'm anxious to get back and run even better this time. We worked hard on this truck during the off season and I feel more prepared than I ever have heading to Daytona. I just can't wait to kickoff this season and see where it takes up. We have high hopes for 2010."

Crew Chief Jeff Hensley on Daytona International Speedway "You just never know what is going to happen at Daytona. The best way to stay out of a wreck is to be in front of it. RHR will have three trucks in the field so we will have teammates to work with and hopefully the three of them can hook up and head to the front. I'm really looking forward to working with Timothy. He is very talented and has a great feel for the truck. We had a very successful test at New Smyrna and if that is any indication, we are going to work well together and win some races along the way."

Equipment Information Timothy Peters will compete with chassis # 140 in the NextEra Energy Resources 250 at Daytona International Speedway. It was raced last fall at Talladega Superspeedway where Peters started 23rd and finished 11th.
