However, the California native is no stranger to the 1.5-mile track making 14 previous starts in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.

Rheem is the official heating, cooling and water heating supplier to Richard Childress Racing, and is a primary sponsor of RCR's No. 29 Chevrolet in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and RCR's No. 33 Chevrolet in the NASCAR Nationwide Series.

Double Duty ... In addition to driving the No. 33 Rheem/Menards car in Friday evening's race, Crafton will pilot the No. 88 Menards truck in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event on Thursday night. This race is scheduled to air live on SPEED at 8 p.m. Eastern Time, along with the Perfromance Racing Network and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio.

Race Rewind ... Crafton last turned laps at Kentucky Speedway in a Camping World Truck in 2012, where he started 11th and finished ninth.

What Are Your Thoughts About Racing the Rheem/Menards Car at Kentucky Speedway?
"This is going to be the first time I race in a NASCAR Nationwide Series event at Kentucky Speedway. I've been there quite a few times in the Camping World Truck Series, and I really love the race track. It's one of my favorite places to race. It's a track with a lot of character. It's rough and you can move around a lot. It's usually not a one-groove race track, which makes for exciting racing. I'm super stoked about the opportunity to race in a Nationwide car for Richard Childress Racing. I've got to thank RCR, Menards and Rheem a ton for the chance to race in a competitive car. It's something I've always wanted to do; race in a good Nationwide car and be able to compete for a win. I know I will have that opportunity this weekend."
