With a 10th place finish at Kansas Speedway on July 2, Rick Crawford scored his 100th top-10 finish in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series. The amazing feat was reached in his 210th series start. "We almost have a 50% top-10 finish record," said Crawford. "I don't pay much attention to it though because I want wins, but it's good. If I keep racking up top-10's, maybe we can get back in the top-10 in the points and bring the Circle Bar Truck Corral Racing team where it needs to be." Crawford is currently 13th in the championship standings.

Rick Crawford is looking to shine brightly in the Built Ford Tough 225 at Kentucky Speedway. The Mobile, AL native has enjoyed limited success 1.5 mile oval scoring one top-five and two top-10 finishes in five starts. "The pressure is on and we need to perform well this weekend," said Crawford. "Kentucky is an important state for Ford Motor Company. A lot of quality Ford vehicles are made right here. And what a great facility Kentucky Speedway is. It's first-class all the way."

The No. 14 Circle Bar Truck Corral Ford F-150 which Rick Crawford will drive in the Built Ford Tough 225 at Kentucky Speedway is chassis CB-15. This marks the fifth event in which this truck has competed. Earlier this season, Crawford drove CB-15 at Gateway International Raceway, Lowe's Motor Speedway, Michigan Speedway and Kansas Speedway.
