Peters will be joined by crew chief Chad Kendrick at Red Horse Racing, with their first race being this weekend’s event at Michigan International Speedway. Peters has participated in all eight races this season for Premier Racing. Sponsor Stutmasters.com has been with Peters since Daytona and recently announced they would stay on board for the remainder of the year.
Strutmasters, which started in owner Chip Lofton's converted dairy barn in 1999, provides consumers an affordable alternative to expensive and problematic
air ride suspension systems found on luxury vehicles. The company ships suspension conversion kits to thousands of auto repair shops, parts stores and dealers across North America. Retail customers can order by visiting the Strutmasters.com website.
“We are excited Timothy and Chad have this opportunity to show their true talents, said Lofton. “We all appreciate the efforts of Premier Racing who kept Timothy out there in a very tough economy”
“I am thankful for the opportunity to come over to Red Horse Racing,” expressed Peters. “I really appreciate my opportunity at Premier Racing and all the support Strutmasters.com has given me. Obviously all our hard work paid off because we were able to get Tom DeLoach’s attention. I am thankful that he is taking a chance on me and I look forward to the future with RHR and Stutmasters.com.”
Red Horse Racing recently ceased operations of the #1 Toyota Tundra driven by Johnny Benson due to a lack of sponsorship funding. This partnership with Peters and Strutmasters.com allows Red Horse Racing to continue to field two trucks while providing the sponsorship backing they need to do so.
“We’re really looking forward to this chapter,” said Team Owner Tom DeLoach. “I’ve watched Timothy on the track and it’s evident that he is a talented driver with impeccable attention to detail and a deep seeded passion to perform and we are pleased to have him join the Red Horse Racing family. Combining the personal characteristics of both driver and crew chief with and the resources of RHR, we can’t help but believe it won’t be long before you see Timothy in the winners circle.”
