Timothy Peters will return to the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series full-time in 2021, piloting the No. 25 Rackley Roofing Chevrolet Silverado for the newly formed Rackley W.A.R.
Co-owned by Curtis Sutton and Willie Allen, the duo announced the formation of Rackley W.A.R. in December 2020, with the intentions of fielding a full-time entry in the NASCAR Truck Series.
“It has always been a dream to be a NASCAR owner,” Allen said. “We are excited about the all-star team we have assembled. I am thankful to have partnered with Curtis Sutton, as we both are driven to succeed. Our team is assembled with very humble and hungry individuals, and we are a close family who want to achieve greatness.”
“I am excited and looking forward to this opportunity as an owner to help lead the No. 25 Rackley Roofing Chevrolet Silverado team to be competitive every single week,” Sutton said. “After being a sponsor (Rackley Roofing) for the last two NASCAR Camping World Truck Series seasons, I felt an obligation to my family, my co-workers and my friends to help build a competitive team.
“The pieces have been put together for our first season. Our focus was to find humble individuals that are proven winners at the highest level to join our team. There is a lot of excitement around bringing experienced crew chief Chad Kendrick and driver Timothy Peters to the team. I am confident Rackley W.A.R. has been assembled as leaders in each of our fields of expertise. Our goal is to be competitive in 2021, and the years to come with the goal towards bringing a championship to Tennessee.”
Peters will enter his 17th year of competition in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, in which he has scored 11 victories, 59 top-fives and 129 top-10s in 248 starts.
“The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series has always been special, and to have the opportunity to return to full time competition is a blessing,” Peters said. “I am very grateful to Willie Allen and Curtis Sutton for the opportunity to represent Rackley Roofing and W.A.R. Shocks. Both gentlemen are top-notch people with a singular determination to win on and off the track.”
Peters’ No. 25 Rackley Roofing Silverado will feature a technical and operational partnership with GMS Racing, a partnership that will allow Rackley W.A.R. to purchase chassis and other services developed by the championship-caliber organization.
“Mike Beam (president of GMS Racing) and I have been friends for a long time,” Allen said. “I could not imagine a better team and program to be aligned with.”
Chad Kendrick will join Rackley W.A.R. from Young’s Motorsports and will be reunited with Timothy Peters for the 2021 season. The pair have worked together in the past, scoring a victory at Martinsville in 2009.
“This season is going to be a dream come true,” Kendrick said. “Being paired with a winning driver and two of the most successful, humble owners, the expectations are high, but also realistic. Rackley W.A.R. is building from the ground up, and while we may hit some tough times ahead, I am sure we will be able to make it through anything.”
The series debut for Rackley W.A.R. will take place on Friday, February 12th, 2021 at Daytona International Speedway.
