Peck Wins Super Cup Stock Car Championship
Aims to Continue Growth in NASCAR Truck Series
GLENVILLE, Penn. (September 3, 2013) – Todd Peck continues to prove that he is capable of competing with racing’s best. Peck won the 2013 Super Cup Stock Car Series (SCSCS) championship in Friday night’s Boschett Timepieces 50 presented by Croushore’s Championship Demolition Derbies at Motordrome Speedway in Smithton, Pennsylvania. Piloting the Stopain/Arthritis Foundation No. 96 Pontiac, Peck scored six top-fives and one win in route to his first championship.
“It’s incredible,” Peck said after clinching the championship. “We’ve run this series four or five years now and been so close so many times, and we finally just got the job done this year. It feels awesome to race with these guys and the caliber of racers that the series has right now. To be the champion really means a lot to me. It’s big.”
Peck, who also drives the No. 40 Arthritis Foundation Chevrolet in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, aims to race additional events in the series this season, looking to run full time in 2014.
“We’re really proud of what we achieved this year in the Super Cup Stock Car Series and we’re looking to take the next step,” Peck said. “Our goal at Peck Motorsports was to put together a team that’s capable of competing in racing’s top levels. We’ve assembled a solid foundation and are ready to continue building upon it. We hope to run a few more races in Truck Series 2013 and position ourselves to run the full schedule in the upcoming year. Since we formed our race team, we’ve gotten better and better each year. We hope that we have the opportunity to continue our growth and compete against the best in racing.”
