[media-credit name=”David Yeazell” align=”alignright” width=”225″][/media-credit]Timothy Peters dominated the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) UNOH 200 at Bristol Motor Speedway on Wednesday night. Peters led all 204 laps run in route to his second victory of the season and the fifth of his career.
“Oh man, what an awesome feeling. First, I want to apologize to the guys at home for the burnout and hurting the truck. Thank you guys for an awesome Toyota Tundra. These guys right here worked their butts off like they do week in and week out.” Peters said.
With this win, Peters became first NCWTS driver since 1997 to lead every lap in a race.
Peters takes over the series points lead by 17 points over James Buescher, who finished seventh.
Peters’ Red Horse Racing teammate, Parker Kligerman finished second, Ross Chastain, who captured his career best finish was third, Joey Coulter fourth and Brendan Gaughan finished fifth.
Ty Dillon ran out of fuel on the final restart while running in the top-5. Dillon finished 21st and falls to third in the series standings, 25 points behind.
Brad Keselowski also ran out of fuel on the final restart and finished 25th.
“On the last restart I didn’t the chance. It ran out of fuel so I don’t know; really confusing. I should have had a good 30 or 40 laps of fuel left. Something happened so we’ll have to go back and figure out what it was.” Keselowski said.
The No. 33 of Cale Gale came up the track and touched the No.11 of Todd Bodine in turn-2, cutting down Bodine’s tire as he entered turn-3. Bodine spun into the outside wall and slid back down the track with heavy damage.
“Pretty much the same thing that’s happened all year. Cale (Gale) just pushed and got into the left-rear (tire) and cut the left- rear down. This racing is so close and so competitive — the kids without experience don’t know that there’s a lot of times that you have to let off.” Bodine said.
The series heads next to Atlanta Motor Speedway on Friday August 31st for the Jeff Foxworthy’s Grit Chips 200.
