: NASCAR Camping World Truck Series team Red Horse Racing announced that to focus on the championship efforts with the #17 and #77 Toyota Tundra teams, it will suspend operations of the unfunded #7 entry. Timothy Peters and Germán Quiroga currently rank second and third, respectively, in the Camping World Series driver championship point 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."(Red Horse Racing)(5-20-2014)

As if the Truck Series didn't have enough trouble getting entries,

I saw this coming. The #7 has had a terrible start to the year. Its not Brian's fault, but they have nothing to show for their effort.

I figured this was coming. After Brian wrecked at Charlotte he said in his interview something like "I hope we can do this again" it's a real shame too, I like Brian Ickler a lot, he drove a year for my favorite K&N West team, I just wish he could get a full time ride in a truck.

It never fails honestly, it seems Red Horse never can make 3 trucks really work no matter who drives it.

Not shocked. With all the wrecked equipment they've probably lost more money that they've banked this year with that team. It's a shame, but I kinda had a feeling this was coming.
