TIMOTHY PETERS QUOTES:
On a Top-Five Finish at Gateway Motorsports Park... "I'm really proud of our team's efforts at Gateway (Motorsports Park). We struggled a bit in practice, trying to get the right set up, but managed to qualify 10th. Marcus Richmond and the whole team worked really hard to give me a solid race truck, one that we could really be competitive with there at the end. Another top-five finish is just what we needed to keep our momentum moving forward."
On heading to Kentucky Speedway... "I'm looking forward to racing at Kentucky (Speedway). It's a track that I've always done pretty well at, and a race that the fans really seem to enjoy. We're coming off a top-five finish so I'm hoping that momentum will bring us another good finish in the Bluegrass State."
