Concord, NC- Rick Crawford and the ...
Concord, NC- Rick Crawford and the #14 Milwaukee Electric Tool Ford head to Loudon planning to bounce back form last week's disappointing finish at Kentucky. The #14 Ford was running in seventh place when an engine failure ended the team's day early. At the time of the engine failure, the #14 Ford was the top running Ford truck.
This weekend, the #14 Milwaukee Electric Tool Ford heads to Loudon, New Hampshire for Saturday's running of the New England 200. The NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series teams up with the Winston Cup Series for a double-header weekend of NASCAR racing. The track is a relatively flat, one mile oval with very little banking in the turns.
"Our best finish is a fifth place two years ago. We tested for tracks like this one before the season started. Using the information we learned from testing should allow us to unload fast and be ready to race. I expect to do better this year with crew chief Ray Stonkus on board. He has helped to bring this team to the next level," stated driver Rick Crawford. Loudon is an exciting track. It has not seen a repeat race or Bud Pole winner in the five Craftsman Truck Series races held at New Hampshire International Speedway. "The #14 Milwaukee Electric Tool Ford team is as good as any other team in the series. The track has yet to see a repeat winner. With a little luck, this will be our weekend to get the win we have been working for," commented Crawford.
The NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series just passed the halfway point of the season. A Ford powered truck has yet to see the finish line. With Crawford and the #14 Milwaukee Electric Tool Ford due for a win, this could be the race where all of the pieces fit the puzzle.
