Rain puts Crafton 12th in Gateway Truck lineup

MADISON, Ill. - Heavy thunderstorms followed by steady rain forced the cancellation of qualifying and left Matt Crafton 12th in the starting lineup for the Ram Tough 200 at the Gateway International Raceway Friday, July 18.

The lineup was set by NASCAR Truck Series rulebook procedures with a majority of the positions established by the current owners' point standings for the circuit. ThorSport Racing's No. 88 Menards/Enzyme Magic Chevrolet Silverado ranks 12th in those standings.

"We might have been able to be better than 12th if we got to qualify, but we'll take 12th and work from there" Crafton said. "We came here with a setup similar to what we ran at Milwaukee. We ran well there and I'm confident we can run well here, too."

The Ram Tough 200 is slated to start at 9 p.m. EDT Saturday, July 19. The race will be telecast live on SpeedChannel and broadcast on the radio affiliates of the Motor Racing Network.
