"TJ has been at Red Horse Racing all year and it will be nice to have him help with the transition. It will be great to have a teammate; someone to share information and ideas with."

Timothy Peters on racing at Michigan International Speedway "I've only been to Michigan twice so I don't have a ton of laps there. The track is shaped like California but drives totally different. You can run wide open and it's sort of like every man for themselves. We're focusing on having a good run this weekend for Strutmasters.com."

Crew Chief Chad Kendrick on Michigan International Speedway "I'm really looking forward to Michigan! It's a good track for Timothy because it really fits his driving style. Hopefully we can get a good finish there. I'm really excited about joining Red Horse Racing. They are a top truck series team and they are definitely at the top of their game. I'm really comfortable with Rick Gay and he has been a tremendous help to me in the transition. I am looking forward to working with him this year."

Equipment Information Timothy Peters will compete with chassis # 138 in the Michigan 200 at Michigan International Speedway. This is a brand new truck from the Red Horse Racing stable.
