Crafton 22nd in opening Daytona practice.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - Plagued by a vibration in the driveline, Matt Crafton posted the 22nd-fastest lap among 36 trucks that participated in a NASCAR Truck Series practice at the Daytona International Speedway Monday, February 10. The practice was shortened to one hour from its scheduled two-hours due to weather issues earlier in the day.

Crafton's fastest lap around the 2.5-mil oval was 50.136 seconds (179.512 miles per hour). Robert Pressley turned the fastest lap of the day (49.378/182.267).

"The vibration really set us back," Crafton said. "We didn't get to work much on our set up because we were chasing the vibration. We have another practice in the morning and then we qualify in the afternoon. We need to get a lot done in the practice."

The 2003 NASCAR Truck Series campaign begins 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.
