Timothy Peters found himself in the lead of the Lucas Oil 150 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Phoenix International Raceway on Friday night, with John Hunter Nemechek alongside on the front row on a restart with 21 laps remaining in the 150-lap race. The two maintained their positions throughout the final laps, and Peters took the race win and Nemechek runner-up honors.
“Chris Lambert (spotter) kept me alert and was integral to see what was going on,” Peters said. “How about Toyota clinching the manufacturers’ championship tonight? That’s awesome. Thank you Toyota for what you do for Red Horse Racing.”
With the win, Peters handed Toyota the 2015 Camping World Truck Series manufacturers’ championship. It was the third-straight such honor for Toyota and the eighth for the manufacturer in its 12 years of competition in the series. Prior the three most recent titles, the other five also came consecutively between 2006 and 2010.
