Crafton equals career-best qualifying effort.
ROANOKE, Texas -Matt Crafton equaled his truck series career-best qualifying performance, earning the eighth starting position for the O'Reilly Auto Parts 400 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race at the Texas Motor Speedway Thursday, June 6. This is the third time Crafton has qualified eighth for a truck race, but the first in 2002.
"We've really be struggling with qualifying in recent races," Crafton said. "We thought we found out why at last week's race at Dover. This might show that we were right in what was wrong."
The O'Reilly Auto Parts 400 is scheduled for 9:00 p.m. EDT/6:00 p.m. EDT Friday, June 7. The race will be telecast live on ESPN and broadcast on the radio affiliates of the Motor Racing Network.
