Red Horse Shuts Down No. 7 Truck
MOORESVILLE, N.C. – Red Horse Racing announced Tuesday that the team would will suspend operations of the unfunded No. 7 entry driven by Brian Ickler in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.
Timothy Peters and Germán Quiroga currently rank second and third, respectively, in the series championship standings. Quiroga is the only driver in the series to have finished in the top 10 in every event of the 2014 season.
“We have been a competitive fixture for nine years in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, and in order to remain so, sometimes requires difficult decisions to be made,” said team owner Tom DeLoach. “Brian Ickler is a very talented driver and an upstanding young man, and we will continue to search for sponsorship opportunities for him. He did a great job for us at Red Horse Racing. Unfortunately, the funding for that team was only through the race at Charlotte (Motor Speedway).
“We are a family at Red Horse Racing, and have always prided ourselves on that. To restructure is not an easy thing to do. I am very proud of everyone who has been a part of Red Horse Racing, and we will continue to remain focused on the big picture and our goal of winning a championship title.”
In four starts this season for Red Horse Racing, Ickler has a best finish of 10th at Martinsville (Va.) Speedway and is currently 19th in the series championship standings.
