- Peters at Texas…The WinStar World Casino 350 will mark Timothy Peters’ sixth career start at Texas Motor Speedway. In five previous starts Peters has earned four top-20 finishes. Earlier this season, he started 11th and finished seventh, capturing his first top-10 finish at TMS.
- Bouncing Back…After a couple rough weeks Peters seems back on track. Accidents at Las Vegas Motor Speedway and Martinsville Speedway left him with 26th and 34th place finishes respectively. Hoping to turn things around, Peters did just that at Talladega Superspeedway by earning a seventh place finish. That top-10 marked the #17 team’s 16th top-10 of the season in 22 events.
- Every Point Counts…As the season winds down, Peters knows that every point he earns in the last three races will be critical. A top-10 finish at Talladega Superspeedway helped Peters to gain a little ground in the driver point standings. He currently sits seventh, just seven points behind sixth place and 85 points behind fifth place. With the goal of getting back inside the top-five, Peters knows he must earn as many points as possible before the checkered flag falls at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
- Crescent Tools Back On Board At Texas… The Crescent Tools logo will adorn the #17 Toyota Tundra as an associate sponsor at Texas Motor Speedway. 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. One of the most recent examples of Crescent innovation is the new RapidSlide™ adjustable wrench.
Timothy Peters on racing at Texas Motor Speedway “I’m looking forward to our return to Texas. We had a really good run going there earlier this year but I had a problem on the last restart and lost our top-five finish. I get my favorite truck back this weekend and I’m ready to get back behind the wheel of that chassis. We need to unload strong and get that top-five finish that eluded us in June. We are doing everything we can to get back inside the top-five in points and the only way to get there is to finish in the top-five these last three weeks. I know this team is more than capable of getting it done.”
Jeff Hensley on racing at Texas Motor Speedway “Texas is one of my favorite tracks. I’ve never been able to get a win there but I’ve finished second about five times. We had another second place run going this summer but got shuffled up on the green white checkered restart and lost some spots. If we start off like we left off there in June we should have a shot at it. The only way to win in Texas is to be better than Todd Bodine so that is our goal for this week.”
Equipment Information Timothy Peters will compete with chassis #138 in the WinStar World Casino 350 at Texas Motor Speedway. This is the same chassis he last raced at Darlington Raceway where he started on the pole and finished 2nd.
