Timothy Peters will return to NASCAR Camping World Truck Series competition in his home state of Virginia to drive for RBR Enterprises in the Alpha Energy Solutions 250 on March 24 at Martinsville Speedway. It’ll be Peters’ first Truck Series start of 2018 in the series’ fourth race of the season.

“I’m very thankful for the call I got from Ricky (Benton, team owner) when he offered me the chance to drive his Black’s Tire Service F-150 at Martinsville,” Peters said, as quoted in a Motorsport.com article. “(Crew chief) Mike Hester and all the guys on the team are racers, and I look forward to working with them. I’ve already been down to the shop once, and I’m ready to drive for them at my home track.”

Peters was a full-time driver in the Camping World Truck Series from 2009 until the completion of the fifth race of 2017. He lost his longtime ride with Red Horse Racing early in 2017 when that race team shuttered operations. He ran three additional races last year, including the November season-finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway for Young’s Motorsports.

Peters has 23-career Truck Series starts at Martinsville, resulting in a 2009 win, eight top-fives and 16 top-10 finishes. His win at Martinsville was his first-career win in the Camping World Truck Series. Overall, Peters has 238 Truck Series starts, resulting in 10 wins, the two most recent coming in 2015 and Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway and Phoenix International Raceway.
