Peck Motorsports Returns for First of Four Races
Hopes to Build Momentum Entering 2013
Glenville, Penn. (September 11, 2012) – Heading to the Iowa Speedway, located in the city of Newton, Peck Motorsports will race their first of four scheduled races to close out their 2012 schedule. Driver Todd Peck and his No. 96 Stopain/Arthritis Foundation Chevrolet team are looking to build momentum over the next three months to carry into 2013.
The team feels confident of a strong performance this Saturday night. After appearing at the track earlier this year a fuel line problem was discovered. The issue has since been fixed and the team will be looking to make their fourth start in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. The race will be televised live on SPEED Channel at 8:00 p.m. ET.
Stopain, an all-American company, will again be on the truck this weekend as the primary sponsor of Peck Motorsports. The company, along with the Arthritis Foundation, will host two families whose children suffer from juvenile arthritis. The families will be guests of the team Saturday at the track. It is part of the team’s continued goal to raise awareness of juvenile arthritis and the Arthritis Foundation’s “Kids Get Arthritis Too” platform.
Comments from Todd Peck Heading to Iowa:
“Our trucks are well prepared for this weekend. We had an issue with the fuel line earlier this year at Iowa, but after extensive chassis dyno testing we pinpointed and fixed the problem. We’ve tested and have put the truck through the paces of getting ready for this weekend. Everything looks great and we feel confident we can have a good weekend.
“We’re really looking to build momentum right now. We are planning to run four races to end our season. Our goal is to run all the laps, get more experience and learn everything we can to build for 2013. We feel that we have put together a pretty strong race program and now we’re ready to go and have a good race Saturday night.”
