Made five starts split between two race teams last year. Peters grabbed a surprising and emotional win for GMS Racing at Talladega in those starts. Named to drive the No. 44 Chevrolet for Niece Motorsports in the first three events of the 2019 season. Peters' schedule beyond those starts is yet to be determined.
Peters is a free agent driver in 2018.
At 36-years-old Peters is one of the grizzled veterans of the Camping World Truck Series. At the completion of last season, he crossed the 230-start plateau which places him among the most seasoned drivers in the series. Of the full-time drivers, only Matt Crafton has more starts. Peters posted no victories last season, which snapped a seven-season winning streak for the Red Horse Racing driver. However, his consistency was spot on with eight Top-5 and 16 Top-10 finishes. That’s in line with levels of performance over the bulk of his career. RHR is expected to pair Peters with a new crew chief in 2017, possibly Chad Kendrick. It’s a move that is hoped to spur Peters back into victory lane and into possible championship contention. We’ll have to see how it all plays out, but we tend to think of Peters’ 2016 numbers as the floor level going forward.
After another strong season at Red Horse Racing, Peters returns for another full slate in 2016. This year he’ll team with new crew chief Shane Huffman and continue the quest for that elusive Camping World Truck Series championship. The 34-year-old driver posted two wins and 16 Top-10 finishes last season en route to a fifth-place finish in the final driver standings. Peters has put up numbers similar to these for the last seven-straight seasons. He’s become about as predictable a driver as there is in this division of NASCAR, however, he still lacks that little boost to become a serious title contender. That could happen in the coming season.
Peters carried the flag high for Toyota in 2012. He will return to the Red Horse Racing team that he claimed two victories and 10 Top-5 finishes with last season. At 32-years of age Peters is becoming one of the “elders” of the truck series. He sports the 140 starts of experience that you’d expect from a driver his age. This team should return mostly intact from their runner-up points finish of last year, so the No. 17 team should be hungry to get that championship trophy. With five victories and 57 Top-10 finishes in the last four seasons combined, Peters has been one of the more consistent drivers in the Camping World Truck Series for some time.
