Peters promising night ends in accident

Danville, VA. --

8.25.08

Timothy Peters and the #17 Premier Racing team entered the O’Reilly 200 with high hopes for a Top-10 finish and almost realized their goal before an accident ended their night in a huge pileup on lap 123. Fresh off their best finish of the year at Nashville, the Premier Racing team continued to impress the O’Reilly 200 audience with a solid set of practice runs for the # 17 truck (10th in both practices) and a qualifying effort that resulted in a 7th place starting position.

“I feel real good about the effort we have put into this truck, and I know we have a team capable of pulling out a Top-10 finish tonight,” said Peters before the start of the race. With an outstanding handling truck, Peters reached as high as the top-5 and stayed in the Top-10 for the first 100 laps of the 200-lap race. On three different laps, his was also the fastest truck of the entire field.

After a series of accidents in the second half of the race, Peters pitted for four tires and fuel on lap 119 and re-started the race in the 18th position. The plan was for Peters to be able to start from near the back of the field and be able to bring his truck to the front without pitting again during the race. This strategy was a smart one as Peters charged into the top-15 but was quickly foiled by a pileup on lap 123 at the exit of Turn 2. This involved Bryan Scott's Chevrolet, David Starr's Toyota, Stacy Compton's Dodge and the #17 Dodge of Timothy Peters.

With damage to the front and rear of the #17 truck Peters was unable to re-fire the engine and exited the cab of his truck, disappointed but encouraged with the performance of the team and himself. In post race comments Peters focused on the positives of this first trip to Bristol with his new team, “I know that the scoreboard will show a 30th place finish for the #17 truck, but I really am happy with our performance tonight. There was nothing we could do to avoid the accident. I ran into a cloud of smoke, and there were trucks on all sides of me, and there was no where to go. I hate it for the team, but we showed that we are capable of running with the best trucks in the series, and we will continue to improve each week.”

After the team began to pack up for the trip home to Virginia, team owner Philip Hudgins also added his comments about the race, “I could not have been more pleased with the effort that Timothy and the team put in during the race, and I know we could not have avoided the accident. These guys are a strong group and the results will come. They told me that the Truck Series would be a tough, competitive series, but trust me: -we are up for the challenge.”

Hudgins added “We will continue to enter as many races as we can in 2008, but we want to assure everyone that we have all the pieces of the puzzle put together for a full time campaign in 2009.” The team will announce its extended 2008 schedule in the coming weeks and looks forward to being a mainstay in the Craftsman Truck Series for years to come.
