Crew chief Butch Hylton and Peters knew the Parts Plus Tundra needed to head to the front of the pack to be in contention at race's end. Racing patiently aggressive, Peters tried to find a dancing partner early on but the draft was not yet moving. It was lap 37 when Peters made his way into the top-15 and the freight train began.
The Parts Plus driver found himself inside the top-10 after a visit to pit road under green-flag conditions. It was on lap 66 when the inevitable came and collected the No. 17 Tundra in an accident ending the day for the team. Peters was scored 29th at races end.
Timothy Peters talks about the accident at Talladega Superspeedway:
"Don't know what happened. The next thing I know somebody got into us in the right rear and into the wall we went. It's a testament to the guys building these trucks, my Butler seat, my Simpson helmet and the HANS device kept us safe. Thanks to everybody at Parts Plus, Toyota, OtterBox, Zaxby's, NET10 Wireless -- just not the day we wanted after coming off that big win in Vegas."
