Crafton to start 17th in California Truck race.

FONTANA, Calif. - Matt Crafton will start the Menards/ColorPave Chevrolet from the 17th position in the American Racing Wheels 200 at the California Speedway.  Qualifying for the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race was Friday, November 1.  The race is Saturday, November 2.

"That's about all we could get out of it today," Crafton said.  "We were running wide open all the way around.  Not much more you can do on a qualifying lap than that.  We're looking at some changes for the race tomorrow.  We'd like to get a little better and get another top-10 finish here."

Crafton's qualifying lap was 42.341 seconds (170.048 miles per hour) around the two-mile oval.  David Starr won the pole (40.944/175.850).

The American Racing Wheels 200 begins 5 p.m. EST/2 p.m. PST Saturday, November 2.  The race is slated for live broadcast on the radio affiliates of the Motor Racing Network (MRN).  ESPN plans tape-delayed coverage of the race at 5 p.m. EST/2 p.m. PST Sunday, November 3.
