Bristol Motor Speedway will be home to a rare midweek event Wednesday evening, when the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series drops the green flag on the UNOH 200.

Among the contenders, Timothy Peters and the number 17 Red Horse Racing team. Peters and crew enter this week’s competition after a short turnaround, and are confident of their abilities on a short track.

“I really enjoy racing on short tracks,” Peters said. “It’s comfortable for me to go to high banked, fast tracks like Bristol because it reminds me of where I got my start in the late models.”

A change in the surface of the half mile concrete track takes away the progressive banking and the high groove near the wall. However, most drivers feel there will still be plenty of door-handle racing and typical tangles that are Bristol trademarks.

Peters enters the event first in the Truck Series point standings. They will bring the same vehicle that won at Iowa Speedway in July. In seven starts at Bristol, Peters has finished in the top five once, and the top 10 three times.
