Gregg Peters joined Stu Laidlaw Racing in 2020, racing for the first time on a paved track in the Pruhs Thunder Stock. He had multiple podium finishes, won a heat race, and finished the season 2nd in points.  During the 2021 season, Gregg again had multiple podium finishes, won a heat race, and earned 3rd place in points for the season.

 

Gregg started racing in 1994, racing mini-stock at Capital Speedway and won the championship.  After taking a few years off Gregg returned to Capital Speedway in 1997, moving to the B-stock (bomber) division, where he placed 2nd.  He return the following season to win the championship.  After a 2nd place finish the next year in the B-stock division, Gregg took the next year off to build a Sportsmans car and he quickly moved to the front of the pack, placing 2nd in 2001 and winning the championship in 2002.  After 2002 Gregg raced off and on, but not a full season until he transitioned to the paved track in 2020.  One memorable night of racing during this time was at the track in Kenai, when he borrowed Stu's car to race (since he no longer had a race car).  He went way faster than Stu in Stu's car, taking 2nd place to Stu's 5th.

 

Gregg's #23 car has a great history.  It was his dirt track car that he won a championship in.  Then he sold it to a guy that later sold it to Stu.  Now it's converted to a pavement car and Gregg's again!  After two years of racing on the pavement, Gregg has pass the wheel to his grandson, Joey.  You can still find him at the track every race day, helping G&G and SLR in the pits.
