Peters Wins Camping World Race With Late Pass
By Jim Pedley | Managing Editor
Clermont, Ind. – Timothy Peters was not a happy Camping World camper when his truck rolled off its truck early Friday morning.
Just not fast, he said.
But during the race, his crew went to work and with six laps to go in the AAA Insurance 200 at Lucas Oil Raceway, Peters took the lead from James Buescher and went on to win for the first time this season.
The victory was the third of his career.
Buescher, 21, going for his first victory, finished second for the third time in his career. David Starr finished third, and Miguel Paludo and Ron Hornaday Jr. completed the top five.
Rounding out the top 10 were Matt Crafton, Joey Coulter, Cole Whitt, polesitter Austin Dillon and Ross Chastain.
Points leader Johnny Sauter suffered a cut tire and finished 23rd.
His points lead fell from 18 to four points over Dillon.No Comment
