Frustrating Kentucky night ends with Crafton 17th.
SPARTA, Ky. - After racing in the top-10 much of the night, Matt Crafton's run in the Kroger 225 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race ended in a frustrating 17th position. Mike Bliss won the race, run Saturday, July 13.
"The handling really went away in the second half of the race tonight," Crafton said. "We were tight all night, but once the sun went down, we really couldn't get the Menards/ColorPave Chevrolet to turn like we needed.
"I hate it that we didn't come out of here with a top-10. We'll have to go home and work hard this week to get ready to finish in the top-10 in New Hampshire."
The NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series continues with the New England 200 at the New Hampshire International Speedway in Loudon, N.H. Saturday, July 20.
