Concord, NC- Rick Crawford and the ...

Concord, NC- Rick Crawford and the #14 Milwaukee Electric Tool Ford head to the Kentucky Speedway for Saturday night racing. The NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race will make its second appearance at the state of the art 1.5-mile oval speedway.

Last year, 18 of the 36 teams that competed finished on the lead lap. The race was completed in record fashion in just one hour and seventeen minutes.

The #14 Milwaukee Electric Tool Ford will be sporting a special paint scheme in celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Sawzall. In 1951, Milwaukee Electric Tool produced the first portable electric hacksaw, the Sawzall. The tool was revolutionary in design. It is clear why the Sawzall quickly became a favorite tool among plumbers, electricians and carpenters. There have been several modifications to the tool during the last 50 years, including a cordless feature. Milwaukee Electric Tool introduced the first cordless Sawzall in 1996. Powered by and 18-volt battery, Milwaukee's Cordless Sawzall became the world's first full sized, battery-operated reciprocating saw.

Crawford and the Milwaukee Electric Tool Heavy Duty Crew appear to be back on track with their eighth place finish last week in Kansas. "It felt good to finish in the top ten. The team is working very hard. We have made some personnel changes and I think the Heavy Duty Pit Crew has moved up to the next level," commented Crawford. The team anticipates a top finish this week in Kentucky. "I can't think of a better way to celebrate Milwaukee Electric Tool 50th Anniversary of the Sawzall than with a win," stated Crawford.

And to top it off, Rick Crawford will participate in a softball game 6:00 p.m. Thursday, July 12th at Northern Kentucky University Women's Softball Field. The top ten in driver point standings will be playing against ESPN announcers and crewmembers.
