Timothy Peters Learning More and More at BHR

Nashville Superspeedway: "I have never laid eyes on that track before, but that is okay. I had never seen Dover before either and we had our best race of the year there when we qualified fourth and finished sixth, so hopefully we will have similar results. That is what this team needs is another race with a good finish like Dover. Nashville is a concrete racetrack just like Dover. I would hate to think that I can only race on concrete but I will take another top-ten finish here this weekend. The truck I am racing here at Nashville is better than the truck we had at Dover, so I am optimistic about our chances. "

Racing in BHR's hometown: "At least you get to sleep in your own bed. This race is a big deal for everybody in our organization. Hometown fans, hometown team and a great racetrack, I am really looking forward to it. Last year Bobby Hamilton and Bobby Jr. had the two fastest trucks in the race so that bodes well for us this weekend with the Bailey's Dodge. It gives us an extra added boost of confidence and the hometown fans who support this organization gives us a big boost as well."

Notes:

* Timothy Peters will make his 10th career NCTS start in the Toyota Tundra 200 at Nashville Superspeedway.

* Peters registered his best NCTS finish at Dover on June 4th coming home in the sixth position.

* Peters is currently 2nd in the NCTS Raybestos Rookie of the Year chase, 94 points behind Todd Kluever.

* Peters will pilot the BHR chassis "Rocket" this weekend at Nashville. It will be "Rocket's" fifth NCTS start. The chassis ran at Charlotte, Kentucky, Memphis and IRP with Peters behind the wheel.

Working at the Brickyard: "I got a chance to work with the Bobby Hamilton Racing team on our Nextel Cup effort at the Brickyard. Indianapolis Motor Speedway is an awe inspiring site. For anyone involved in racing it is a very special experience just to be a part of a race at that facility. The Brickyard is just filled with tradition; it is just a special feeling to be there. It was really neat to walk out on the front stretch and see the Nextel Cup cars come by and they are absolutely hauling the mail when they come by the flag stand. Just to look up and see all those grandstands and all those fans was a great experience. I was glad to be a part of it and Bobby did a great job in making the race with such tough competition. It was great for the entire BHR organization."

Crew Chief Randy Seals on Nashville: "Personally Nashville is a very special racetrack for me. I have been a part of five teams that have captured the guitar there, three in the late model events, one when I spotted for Michael Waltrip in a Busch race and one with the BHR organization. From a competition standpoint the key to running good at Nashville is getting your truck to turn in the center. The driver that can get on the gas first in the middle of the corner is going to be the driver that wins at Nashville. It is a very smooth race track and it does not have a lot of grip. You need to be able to roll trough the corner and get back on the gas."
