LAS VEGAS, Nev. - Matt Crafton will start 14th in the Las Vegas 350 NASCAR Truck Series race at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway Sunday, October 13. Crafton earned the position in qualifying for the race Saturday, October 12. The performance marks the 14th time in 19 races this season that Crafton has qualified in the top 20 of a truck event.

"We picked up three tenths of a second over our practice time, so we're pretty happy," Crafton said. "We would have liked to have ended up a couple of positions closer to the front, but I'm not going to complain. I think the Menards/ColorPave Chevrolet will race well tomorrow and give us a shot at another top-10 finish."

Crafton's fastest lap around the 1.5-mile oval was 34.058 seconds (158.553 miles per hour). David Starr won the pole at 33.106 (163.112).

The Las Vegas 350 starts at 5 p.m. EDT/2 p.m. PDT Sunday, October 13. The race is telecast live on ESPN and broadcast on the radio affiliates of the Motor Racing Network.
