Red Horse Racing Suspends Truck Series Operations

By David Morgan, NASCAR Editor

According to multiple reports, Red Horse Racing, a mainstay in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series since 2005, will be suspending their operations, effective immediately, due to a lack of funding.

The organization has 16 wins to its name over the years, as well as 112 top-five finishes, 236 top-10 finishes, and 14 poles.

Currently, the team fields entries for Timothy Peters and Brett Moffitt on a full-time basis, with their two trucks ranked sixth and 10th in points, respectively, after last Friday’s race at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Peters finished a season-high of fifth at Charlotte, while Moffitt struggled to an 18th place finish.

Peters joined the team in 2009 and all 10 of his Truck Series wins have come under the Red Horse banner, most recently at Phoenix in November 2015. The Virginia native also finished in the top-five in the championship standings on five occasions for the team; scoring a career-best points finish of second in 2012.

Though Moffitt has only made 13 starts in the Truck Series, he also had been successful behind the wheel of a Red Horse truck as he won his first race for the team at Michigan last August in a 1-2 finish for himself and Peters.

Moffitt took to Twitter shortly after the news broke to give his thoughts on the team shutting down.
