MOORESVILLE, N.C. - Red Horse Racing is suspending operations of its unsponsored No. 7 team in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.

The organization will focus efforts on its two other trucks with drivers Timothy Peters and German Quiroga - who are currently second and third, respectively, in the point standings.

"We've been a competitive fixture for nine years in the Camping World Truck Series and to remain so sometimes requires difficult decisions to be made," said team owner Tom DeLoach.  "Brian Ickler (driver of the No. 7 Toyota) is a very talented driver and an upstanding young man.  We will continue to search for sponsorship opportunities for him.  We're a family at Red Horse Racing and have always prided ourselves on that.  To restructure is not an easy thing to do."

Bullet Liner sponsored Ickler in this season's first four races, during which his best finish was 10th at Martinsville Speedway.

"Unfortunately, funding for that team was only through the race at Charlotte," DeLoach said.

Ickler was sidelined by an accident in last weekend's North Carolina Education Lottery 200 and finished 23rd in the 33-truck field.
