.         Peters at Phoenix.The Lucas Oil 150 will mark Timothy Peters’
second career start at Phoenix International Raceway. Last fall Peters
started from the 16th spot and earned a 16th place finish. Despite
struggling in his first PIR start, Peters is determined to turn that around
this season.

.         On The Rebound.After a couple rough weeks at Las Vegas and
Talladega, Peters seems back on track. Accidents at both tracks left him
with 26th and 34th place finishes respectively. In the last two weeks Peters
has been able to turn things around with a seventh place finish at Talladega
Superspeedway and a 12th place finish at Texas Motor Speedway. Peters’ isn’t
slowing down yet. He plans to secure top-10 finishes in both Phoenix and
Miami to firm up his place in the point standings.

.         Every Point Counts.Just two races remain for Peters to work his
way back inside the top-five in Camping World Truck Series driver point
standings. After a 12th place finish at Texas last weekend, Peters moved up
one spot to the sixth position. He is just 46 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.

Timothy Peters on racing at Phoenix International Raceway “I’m looking
forward to getting back to Phoenix. We really struggled there last year and
I came into this season looking at New Hampshire and Phoenix as my “Achilles
Heel.” We had a good run at New Hampshire so I feel confident we can have a
good run at Phoenix. Our goal right now is to earn as many points as we can
and capitalize on the mistakes of others. We were able to do that in Texas
and we will need to keep doing it these last two races to reach the top-five
by Homestead.”
