Interestingly, veteran Preston Peltier is not on the entry list. Peltier reported via social media this past week that he “will no longer be working and/or driving for the Vecchiarelli’s & Generator Source” going forward. According to Peltier, parties failed to “come to a contractual agreement” for the 2020 Late Model stock car racing season.

Stay tuned as we will have more on the story involving Peltier as it develops.
