IDEAL Door, a leader in residential and commercial garage doors, is in their seventh season sponsoring NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) driver Matt Crafton, and will make their fourth appearance onboard the No. 88 IDEAL Door/Menards Toyota Tundra at Iowa Speedway in Newton for the ninth race on the 2014 NCWTS schedule. Crafton, one of only six drivers to run all seven NCWTS events at the 7/8-mile Midwestern track, has one win, leads all series drivers with the most top-10 finishes (7), is one of only two drivers who has finished on the lead lap in all seven races and is one of only two drivers to complete the most laps (1417), making the defending series champion an "IDEAL" candidate for victory lane in Friday night's American Ethanol 200 presented by Enogen.

Sounding off - Matt Crafton:
"We've been pretty good at Iowa, and I think it's really because that track just fits my driving style. Iowa doesn't drive like a short track, even though it's less than a mile. You might think I'm crazy, but to me, it drives more like a mile-and-a-half track, with the taste of a short track. The trucks can run wide open around there, making it not only a challenge, but a bunch of fun."
