Crafton 21st in Daytona lineup.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - Matt Crafton earned the 21st starting position in the Florida Dodge Dealers 250. He earned the position in qualifying for the NASCAR Truck Series event at the Daytona International Speedway Tuesday, February 11.

Crafton's fastest lap around the 2.5-mile oval was 50.306 seconds (178.905 miles per hour). Jason Leffler won the pole (49.182/182.994).

"We're a little disappointed with that," Crafton said. "It's the best we've done in our three races here, but we wanted to do a lot more. We'll get ready for the drafting practice tomorrow and start working on our race package."

The 2003 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.
