Notes/Quotes

* Rick Crawford and the Circle Bar Truck Corral Racing team would like to thank all the fans, track personnel and the entire NASCAR community for the support and well wishes received following his accident while qualifying the No. 14 Ford F-150 at Kentucky Speedway two weeks ago.

* The O'Reilly 200 at Memphis Motorsports Park marks a return to the short tracks for the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series and Mobile, Ala. native Rick Crawford couldn't be happier.

"Short track racing is where most of the NASCAR drivers started their careers," said Crawford. "It's where we all grew up. Memphis reminds me of my local short track, Mobile (Ala.) International Speedway. Both are drivers' tracks.

"One thing will be certain. I will have on my blue suede shoes."

* The No. 14 Circle Bar Truck Corral Ford F-150 which Rick Crawford will drive in the O'Reilly 200 at Memphis Motorsports Park is a new truck. The truck, known as CB-17, was built with Memphis Motorsports Park in mind.
