NASCAR’s Timothy Peters Was Untouchable Wednesday Night In Bristol
Timothy Peters #17 Red Horse Racing Toyota truck was more than just red in color Wednesday night at Bristol Motor Speedway for the running of the UNHO 200. Timothy Peters blistered the competition, running red hot and untouchable, dominating all 204 laps for his second victory in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series this season.
A very eventful race that seen alot of side by side racing did not get its first caution until lap 83, set up a fuel mileage strategy fairly early that did not work very well for a few drivers that were running up front until the end. On the final restart, Brad Keselowski and Ty Dillon both could not get their trucks to take off when the green flag dropped, but were able to quickly pull off the race track keeping the race green to the checkered flag.
Tom Deloach, owner of Red Horse Racing, had a birthday wish come true as he was able to celebrate a hard earned victory at Bristol as well as having his newly signed driver Parker Kligerman(driving the #7 truck) finishing second.
Ross Chastain got a career best finish of third in his #08 Melon 1 Toyota, #22-Joey Coulter finished in the 4th spot.#19 Ryan Blaney finished 6th in his BKR debut.
Timothy Peters recorded his second win of the season, 5th career and now has a 17-point lead in the championship points in the Camping World Truck Series. James Buescher is in 2nd and Ty Dillon is 3rd, 25 points behind Peters.
