Following an abrupt announcement that Red Horse Racing would be closing their doors, Timothy Peters and Brett Moffitt both were left without a ride. Peters would miss his first NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event since 2008 after missing today’s Bar Harbor 200 in Dover, DE, but the veteran driver was in the garage this afternoon to announce that he will race the next two events at Texas Motor Speedway and Gateway Motorsport Park.

Peters will pilot the No. 99 MDM Motorsports Chevrolet next weekend at the Texas Motor Speedway in the WinStarOnlineGaming.com 400 at Texas where the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series join the Verizon IndyCar Series. Peters will also pilot that truck in the Drivin’ for Linemen 200 at Gateway on June 17.

In 235 starts in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, Peters has secured 10 victories. 57 Top-5’s, 121 Top-10’s, and eight career poles are what he brings to the table on his resume.

The rest of the season for Peters is a bit of an unknown and will possibly depend on his performance in the next two events. He currently finds himself ninth in points, just one spot out of a playoff position. Since Peters missed the race at Dover, he may have lost his eligibility for the playoffs, but NASCAR could grant him a waiver if he secures additional races.
