* Off To A Great Start...Timothy Peters earned his Camping World Truck Series career best finish last weekend at Kentucky Speedway. Peters brought home a fourth place finish, marking his third top-10 finish in only four races with Red Horse Racing. Since his first race with RHR at Michigan, Peters has earned finishes of eighth at MIS, 18th in Milwaukee, seventh in Memphis and a fourth place finish in Kentucky. The #17 Strutmasters.com team hopes to keep that momentum going and improve on their recent success at O'Reilly Raceway Park. If they keep this streak up, it won't be long before you see Peters and his team knocking on the door of Victory Lane.

* Peters at ORP...The AAA Insurance 200 will mark Timothy Peters third Camping World Truck Series start at O'Reilly Raceway Park. In two previous starts in 2005 and 2006 Peters finished 28th and 15th respectively.

* New Addition to Red Horse Racing...The #11 and #17 teams added a new crew member with the addition of a team engineer. Matt Faulkner joined Red Horse Racing two weeks ago and the team can already see improvement. Faulkner received a degree in Manufacturing Engineering from BYU. He got his start in racing with Super Late Models on the West Coast and moved to North Carolina to work with NASCAR teams in 2008. On a personal note, Faulkner and his wife are expecting new additions of their own. Twins are due in December.

Timothy Peters on racing at O'Reilly Raceway Park "I've only raced at ORP twice but I really like it. It reminds me of the short track Saturday night racing that I grew up on. This track really fits my racing style. I love all the short tracks that we go to. ORP reminds me of South Boston Speedway and that is a track where I have had a lot of success in my Late Model. I am really looking forward to getting to the track and seeing if we can keep this string of top-10's going"

Crew Chief Chad Kendrick on O'Reilly Raceway Park "I'm a little nervous about ORP because I have never crew chiefed there before. Timothy has only been there twice so neither of us have a ton of experience there. We are really proud of our recent success and I am really proud of Timothy. He has gained so much confidence over the past four weeks. You can really see it on the race track. He makes passes that he would not have made a month ago and it's really cool to see him get more and more confident with each good finish. Our goal is to keep this momentum up for the remainder of the year."

Equipment Information Timothy Peters will compete with chassis # 137 in the AAA Insurance 200 at O'Reilly Raceway Park. This is the same chassis he drove in Milwaukee and Memphis where he finished 18th and seventh respectively.
