NASCAR Camping World Truck Series veteran driver Timothy Peters has a ride for Saturday’s race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, courtesy of Young’s Motorsports. He’ll be behind the wheel of the team’s No. 02 Chevrolet.

“I can’t thank Young’s Motorsports enough for the chance to drive their truck this weekend at Las Vegas,” sounded Peters. “I’ve known Tyler a long time and I know he works hard to keep his team going at every race. Hopefully, we can go to Las Vegas this weekend and have a strong showing and some fun too.”

As a result of the gig, Peters will reunite with Chad Kendrick, his crew chief at Red Horse Racing.

Peters, a longtime driver at Red Horse Racing, drove the No. 17 Toyota for that team through the first five races of 2017, until Red Horse shuttered operations. He has run one Truck Series race since then for MDM Motorsports at Texas Motor Speedway near Fort Worth in June.

Peters is a 10-time winner in the Truck Series, most recently winning two races in 2015. He won at LVMS in 2013. Last year, he was among the four drivers vying for the series championship in the season-finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Peters also has 57-career top-fives and 121-career top-10 finishes in 236 series starts.

“This is a tremendous opportunity for Young’s Motorsports,” team principal and driver Tyler Young said. “I’ve always had a lot of respect for Timothy, not only as a competitor, but as a pure talent behind the wheel. I’m excited to see him behind the wheel of one of our trucks and hope that it can bring one of our best finishes of the year.”
