Timothy Peters got his second straight NASCAR Camping World Trucks Series victory at Iowa Speedway on Saturday night.

It was Peters’ first win of the season and sixth in his career, moving the Red Horse Racing driver into sixth in points.

“We started off the season a little rocky,” Peters said. “We’re turning that around. And we’re going to shine through the summer months. We’re going to shine through Homestead and we’re going to get that championship that was so close last year.”

Erik Jones finished second and James Buescher was a season-best third.

Buescher, the defending series champion, has three top-10 finishes in six starts at Iowa Speedway.

“I’m happy with our third-place run,” Buescher said. “A couple mistakes probably beat us at the end.”

Veteran driver and former series champion Ron Hornaday Jr. and teen-ager Chase Elliott rounded out the top five.

Matt Crafton finished sixth to retain a 31-point championship lead over Jeb Burton.

“We were in the top five all night and I’m really proud of that,” Jones said. “Being able to be up there to contend is a big step for me.”
