Crafton to start 13th in Milwaukee truck race.

WEST ALLIS, Wis. - Matt Crafton earned the 13th starting position in qualifying for the GNC Live Well 200 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race held Friday, June 27 at the Milwaukee Mile. Terry Cook won the pole.

The effort will result in Crafton's eighth straight start in the top-20, including four consecutive in the top-15. Still, the California native wasn't happy with the effort.

"We were fifth in the first practice and eighth in the second, so qualifying 13th was a disappointment," Crafton said. "The good news is we have a good race truck. We made a change right at the end of the final practice that really got us going. I think we'll have a good race truck tomorrow."

Crafton's fastest lap around the flat one-mile oval was 30.371 seconds (118.534 miles per hour). Cook won the pole at 30.001/119.996).

The GNC Live Well 200 takes the green flag at 3 p.m. EDT Saturday, June 28. The race will be telecast live on SpeedChannel and broadcast on the radio affiliates of the Motor Racing Network.
