Phoenix, Ariz. (October 24, 2001) Matt Crafton of Toledo, Ohio returned to the track where he clinched his 2000 season Featherlite Southwest Series, NASCAR Touring championship and won the Bud Pole for the Albertsons/OSCO Drug "125" to be run on the desert mile known as Phoenix Int'l Raceway Thursday, October 25, 2001. Crafton toured the mile in his Sealmaster Ford at 27.702/129.955mph to edge Ken Schrader for the pole. Following Crafton and Schrader in Qualifying were Jeff Jefferson, Todd Souza, and Thomas Martin. Martin's time was a bit of a surprise since he operates on a shoestring and has had little help preparing the car.

FSWS point leader and eight-time Bud Pole winner Craig Raudman could only lay down a lap of 27.995/128.594mph, good for tenth quick. The Yerf-Dog Chevrolet driver was disappointed with the qualifying effort, but has his car solidly in the show and needs only to finish 41st or better in order to clinch his first FSWS title. Second place point challenger, Auggie Vidovich Jr. timed in with a quick lap of 28.227/127.537mph, and will start the race from the 19th starting position.

The Albertsons/OSCO Drug "125" is scheduled to start at 3:45 p.m. on Thursday and leads off the big NASCAR weekend at PIR which will also feature the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series, NASCAR Busch Series, and NASCAR Winston Cup Series.
