Timothy Peters: Red Horse Racing Iowa Speedway Team Advance
REPEAT WINNER: At Iowa Speedway in July, Timothy Peters became the first NASCAR Camping World Truck Series repeat winner at the 0.875-mile tri-oval. After leading 39 laps, Peters collected his first victory of the 2013 season and sixth in his career. Peters has six starts at 'America's Place to Race' and will make his seventh start during the American Ethanol 200. The No. 17 Parts Plus Toyota Tundra driver has collected two wins, two top-five and three top-10 finishes with 126 laps led.
PARTS PLUS: Parts Plus will make the trip back to Iowa Speedway as primary sponsor of Timothy Peters No. 17 Toyota Tundra. The Memphis-based warehouse distributor originated more than 56 years ago tracing back to a series of jobber programs. Since 2005, Parts Plus has been a member of the Automotive Distribution Network that has over 300 member distributors under five brand names and from over 400 separate warehouses across the United States, Mexico, Canada and Puerto Rico.

CHASSIS HISTORY: Timothy Peters and his No. 17 Parts Plus Team will unload Tundra Chassis No. 15 this weekend at Iowa Speedway. Most recently Peters captured a sixth-place finish at Michigan International Speedway with this chassis after making its debut at the 2.5-mile tri-oval of Pocono Raceway.
MEET & GREET: Peters, along with teammates Germán Quiroga and John Wes Townley will join the NASCAR Camping world Truck Series drivers for an autograph session on Saturday, September 7th from 4:15 - 5:00 pm at Iowa Speedway at the Infield Fan Walk.
REARVIEW MIRROR - CANADIAN TIRE MOTORSPORT PARK: There are a lot of tired jokes about NASCAR drivers only making left-hand turns, but this was certainly not true for Timothy Peters and the No. 17 Parts Plus Toyota Tundra. Peters qualified for the 64-lap race in the 15th-position placing him in the middle of the pack for the start. Peters skillfully moved up to sixth position before crew chief Butch Hylton started working the fuel strategy part of the race. Both driver and crew chief made good calls and the team earned an eighth-place finish.
Timothy Peters on Returning to Iowa Speedway:
What is it about Iowa Speedway that your team has found success?
"I really can't pinpoint one thing that makes our Parts Plus Tundra strong. We have a good setup that we of course won with last year. Every time I go to Iowa though, I love the racing and the race track. It really fits my driving style.
How does it feel going back to a track where you are the only repeat winner?
"A lot of momentum for sure. It's kind of cool to say that I am in that category of the 'First'. I'm looking forward to getting back to a racetrack where we won at earlier this year and capitalize on another good run and try to keep gaining in the championship point standings."
