For the first time since 2017, Todd Peck will drive for his father, Michael Peck and Peck Motorsports.

The 34-year-old will drive the No. 96 Holla Spirits Vodka Chevrolet Silverado in the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series. It will be the third time that Peck will attempt to compete at Daytona International Speedway. Todd Peck last drove for his father at Charlotte Motor Speedway in 2017.

The partnership not only makes the team an all PA-based effort but brings awareness to childhood diseases. Peck was diagnosed with juvenile arthritis while Holla Spirits founder Patrick Shorb has two rare genetic conditions known as Fabry and Charcot Marie-Tooth (CMT) diseases.

“We really hope this is the start of a great relationship with the NASCAR community and its fans,” stated Shorb. “Todd and the entire Peck family are great people and are really my ‘neighbors’ here in Central Pennsylvania. It makes it special to support Todd in his NASCAR career.

“Like me, he’s overcome adversity to be successful. Now, he’s helping us to bring Holla Vodka to Daytona. We can’t more thrilled to see our brand on NASCAR’s biggest stage.”

In 34 career NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series starts, Peck has a best finish of 18th, twice. One came at Phoenix Raceway in 2012 with the other at Daytona International Speedway in 2017. The 2017 race at Daytona marked the only time that Peck has led a lap to date.

“It’s been cool to watch Holla vodka take off,” explained Peck. “Patrick is a great friend and we’re thankful that he wanted to help us out. He knows that NASCAR fans are looking for a great tasting vodka and that’s what Holla is. We want to get to Daytona and have a great race and get Holla out front. We’re all excited to get this partnership started.”

Peck also has 13 NASCAR Xfinity Series starts. His best finish, 25th, came at Kentucky Speedway in 2016.
