#14 Milwaukee Electric Tool Ford and the Chicago Blackhawks... Plan To Blow Away the Competition In the Windy City

Concord, NC- Rick Crawford and the #14 Milwaukee Electric Tool Ford plan to blow away the competition during the Craftsman 175 at the Chicago Motor Speedway. Crawford and the Milwaukee Heavy Duty Crew are on a roll after finishing 6th and 3rd places the last two races.

Chicago is a tough track to get around. It is like a big Martinsville Speedway. The track is shaped like a paper clip with long front and backstretches and tight turns. Therefore, some teams are considering shifting gears in the straight-aways. "Ray Stonkus and the Heavy Duty Crew will give me a truck that I know will handle well. The fast trucks will be shifting gears during the straight-aways. With Ernie Elliott horsepower under the hood, we plan on shifting," stated Crawford.

The #14 Ford is hitting their stride after changing engine builders. "The last two races have been a lot of fun. We have the horsepower under the hood that allows us to be in contention for a win. Ernie Elliott motors have given the #14 Ford the horsepower we need to give the Dodges and Chevy's a run for the money," stated driver Rick Crawford.

In an effort to include some of Chicago's best professional sports teams with the upcoming NCTS race in Chicago, six teams will put their logo on a Craftsman truck. The Chicago Blackhawks of the NHL will put their logo on the #14 Milwaukee Electric Tool Ford. "I'm excited that our team has been chosen to participate in such an event. I think it is good for the NCTS, the Blackhawks and Milwaukee Electric Tool," stated Crawford. Ryan Vanderbush will be the honorary pit crewmember representing the Chicago Blackhawks.
