Timothy Peters will make his Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series debut this week in the Geico 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway.

Peters has never driven on the restrictor-plate, superspeedways in any anything except the Camping World Truck Series, so this is going to be a rude awakening. He’s competing for a new team and is likely to struggle to stay on the lead lap without frequent cautions.

Timothy Peters was then putting together a respectable run inside the top 10 for the team when things changed. Following the ninth caution in the Winstaronlinegaming.com 400 at Texas Motor Speedway, the field restarted with two laps remaining.

As the leaders came out of Turn 4, Austin Wayne Self lost control. Peters had nowhere to go, slamming Self. As he slid into the infield, the truck flipped, causing what was one of the worst wrecks in recent series history not on a plate track. The damage to Peters’ truck, sitting upside down made it difficult for safety workers to remove him. But after what seemed like an eternity, Peters emerged from the infield care center, uninjured.

For a series that has defined itself with the "Tough Trucks" moniker, it's only fitting that a grinder throwing sparks adorns the side of the No. 99 Metabo Chevrolet Silverado of Timothy Peters in this week's NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Texas Motor Speedway.

Peters, a 13-year Truck Series veteran with 10 career victories, will make his 19th start at the Texas Motor Speedway on Friday night thanks in part to an increased involvement by the Metabo Corporation with MDM Motorsports. Peters had competed for Red Horse Racing since midway through the 2009 season, but that organization ceased operations following the series' fifth race of the season at Charlotte Motor Speedway.-Spire Sports Inc
