NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series (NGOTS) winner and veteran Timothy Peters will join Niece Motorsports, piloting the No. 44 Chevrolet Silverado for the first three races of the 2019 season.
Peters, who is an 11-time winner in the NGOTS will drive the No. 44 Friends of Jaclyn Foundation Chevrolet in the season-opening event at Daytona International Speedway, followed by races at Atlanta Motor Speedway and Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
“I’m really excited for the opportunity to race the first three races for Niece Motorsports,” said Peters. “Al Niece, Cody Efaw and everyone within Niece Motorsports have been working very hard towards the 2019 season, and I’m looking forward to showing what we can accomplish and build in these first three races. Also, it is an honor to represent the Friends of Jaclyn Foundation at Daytona. We hope to bring awareness to children that have been diagnosed with brain tumors and other pediatric cancers. Thanks to everyone that made this opportunity possible. Daytona here we come!”
Peters has 10 NGOTS starts at Daytona International Speedway, visiting Victory Lane at the esteemed track in 2010. Additionally, Peters won at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in 2013.
In 2018, Peters made five starts, earning one win, two top-five and four top-10 finishes. The veteran racer is no stranger to superspeedway success – he led the final lap in last season’s event at Talladega Superspeedway to capture his 11th NGOTS victory.
“Timothy is a proven winner and we are thrilled to have him on board to start this season,” said General Manager Cody Efaw. “He has a ton of experience in these trucks and obviously a tremendous amount of talent. As a team we are excited about what Timothy brings to the table and look forward to running up front with him behind the wheel.”
The No. 44 Chevrolet will carry the Friends of Jaclyn Foundation colors at Daytona International Speedway. The Friends of Jaclyn Foundation’s mission is to improve the quality of life for children battling pediatric brain tumors and other childhood cancers and to raise awareness through their Adopt-A-Child, Safe on the Sidelines and Guardian Angel Programs.
