Timothy Peters Talladega Superspeedway Post Race Report

Timothy Peters and his No. 17 Parts Plus Toyota Tundra qualified for the Fred's 250 presented by Coca-Cola in the 31st position. In a place where qualifying at the front does not dictate the outcome of the race, the team elected to make some changes to the Tundra before the start of the 94-lap event. With that, the team started at the rear of the field when the Truck Series went green at Talladega Superspeedway. 

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."
