2014 Bowmanville: Matt Crafton NASCAR Truck Race Preview


In the last three NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) races Matt Crafton, driver of the No. 88 IDEAL Door/Menards Toyota Tundra, has gained four points on the championship points leader. With only eight races remaining on the 2014 schedule, the defending Truck Series champion is a mere eight points behind ThorSport Racing teammate Johnny Sauter entering the 2nd annual NCWTS event at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park in Bowmanville, Ontario, Canada. Coming off a top-10 run in the inaugural event at the 2.459-mile road course, the Menards driver hopes to stay on course and keep gaining momentum in the driver point standings in hopes of becoming the first driver in series history to capture back-to-back titles.

Sounding Off - Matt Crafton:
"I'm looking forward to the road course in Canada, I wish we had more than just one in the season to go race, but we'll make the best of the one we've got. We are taking the same truck as we had last year to Canada this year, but a way different setup, I can promise you that. We were really off of where we needed to be last year, but we have a pretty good grasp of where we need to be this year. We actually got the opportunity to go shake our truck down at a little road course up in Ohio on Monday, so I think we will be ready to go put on a good show in Canada this weekend. Last year, I feel like we were on an even playing field in terms of experience, but I felt like I was a little more green than others. Hopefully, this year will be a lot different for us."
