Peck Motorsports Ready for Home State Race

Pennsylvania-Based Team Excited For Second Truck Series Race at Pocono

 

GLENVILLE, Penn. (July 30, 2014) – Todd Peck, driver of the No. 40 Arthritis Foundation Chevrolet, is one of the few NASCAR drivers who won’t have to travel far from home for this weekend’s Pocono Mountains 150. Peck, whose team is based in Glenville, Penn., has an in-state commute to the 2.5-mile Pocono Raceway. He and his team look forward to competing in their second Camping World Truck Series race of 2014 and their second race at Pocono Raceway.

Peck has one prior NCWTS start at Pocono Raceway. In 2013, he started 30th and finished 27th. The team looks to improve on their performance this week.

“It’s always great when our team gets to compete on a national stage, but it’s extra-special to be racing in our home state,” Peck said. “Our team has really raised its game. We feel like we’re more competitive than ever and ready to take the next step. We’re excited to have the opportunity to race at Pocono. When we see all of our friends and family in the grandstands, it’s hard to put into words how awesome that feels. Hopefully we’ll put on a good show for them.”

In addition to a partial NCWTS schedule, Peck Motorsports competes in the Super Cup Stock Car Series. Peck claimed the 2013 championship after driving to one win and six top-five finishes.

“Last time at Pocono, everything was new to us. We’re excited to return with some notes and experience to build off of,” said Keith Wolfe, crew chief. “We’ve learned a lot and have come a long way since out first trip there. It’s definitely a tough track. All of the turns are different, so there’s no such thing as a perfect setup. We don’t have a huge Truck Series notebook to build off of and there will still be a steep learning curve for us, but we’re expecting to be more prepared and faster out of the gates.”

Peck Motorsports will once again host a family at the race track in conjunction with the Arthritis Foundation. Peck, who was diagnosed with arthritis as a child, aims to encourage others with the condition to live an active and fast-paced lifestyle. On Saturday, a child with juvenile arthritis and his parents will spend race day with the No. 40 team. They will get to tour the team hauler, see the day’s happenings inside the garage and cheer Peck on from his pit stall during the race.

“One of the coolest things about our race program is hosting the families at the track,” Peck said. “It’s always so much fun to have them as our guests. They usually think I’m joking when I tell them I have arthritis, but they get really excited when they see that I’m telling the truth. That’s what’s neat – they realize that arthritis doesn’t have to slow them down and there’s no stopping them when they want to accomplish something.”
