Peck Becomes First Repeat Ohio Speedweek Winner at Atomic

CHILLICOTHE, OH – Becoming the first repeat winner of Cometic Gasket Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Hercules Tires, Monrovia, Indiana’s Justin Peck and his familiar Buch Motorsports No. 13 conquered the highbanks of Atomic Speedway on Wednesday evening, outrunning “Double-D” Danny Dietrich and Sam McGhee Motorsports’ Parker Price-Miller for what came to be their second win of Speedweek, and their fourth Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 win of the season.

Scoring a $6,000 top prize for his efforts, Peck started the 30-lap contest from the pole position, actually fading to second at the hands of Price-Miller before reclaiming the point on lap nine. Although Peck was seemingly in control, Dietrich was hot on his heels, eventually driving beneath Peck’s No. 13 on lap 12. The Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, native did his best to outrun Peck, but a caution on lap 14 would ultimately end his reign.

The ensuing restart would see Peck dive to the bottom of turns three and four, sliding across the nose of Dietrich’s No. 48 and retaking the point for the final time. Traffic did become a factor in the closing circuits, but Peck prevailed.

“When a driver can go out and know exactly what to expect out of his race car, it makes his life a lot easier, and that’s been the name of the game for us this year…fast, consistent race cars,” Justin Peck, the current Ohio Sprint Speedweek points leader, said in Atomic Speedway victory lane. “I knew I could carry so much momentum around the top here. The bottom just didn’t have it…I tried it a few times and just couldn’t make it stick, so when Danny (Dietrich) got by me, I knew not to panic and just keep my momentum.

“Hats off to this entire team,” Peck added. “It’s been one heck of a week so far.”
