Happy Hour a good time for Crafton at Daytona.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - Although he didn't crack the top-10 on overall speed, Matt Crafton was pleased with the performance of his Menards/Enzyme Solutions Chevrolet in the final practice for the NASCAR Truck Series at the Daytona International Speedway Thursday, February 13.

Crafton's fastest lap around the 2.5-mile oval was 47.789 seconds (188.328 miles per hour), 11th-fastest in the practice session. Rick Crawford paced the field at 47.352/190.066.

"I like how the truck is running in the draft," Crafton said. "I know we're starting outside the top-20 in the race, but we've been back there before and always gotten to the top-10. There's no reason we can't get to the front again this year. The Menards horsepower is great. I think we're right there. I'm happy with things."

The 2003 truck series campaign begins at 1 p.m. EST Friday, February 14 with the Florida Dodge Dealers 250. The race will be telecast live on the SpeedChannel and broadcast on the affiliates of the Motor Racing Network.
