#14 Milwaukee Electric Tool Ford
Looks To Leave the Competition Singing the Blues In Memphis
Concord, NC- Rick Crawford and the Milwaukee Electric Tool Ford F-150 race team look to swing into Memphis and come away from the Memphis 200 with the teams first victory of the season. The team has run well in Memphis in the past and this year should not be any different. The #14 Ford head into Memphis knowing that they will be one of the trucks to beat and that the other teams will be gunning for them.
"Memphis is a track that is similar to one that I raced on for years back in Mobile Alabama. Ray Stonkus and the Heavy Duty Crew will give me a truck that will be a contender, the team is excited about racing in Memphis", stated driver Rick Crawford. Memphis is a three quarter mile banked track that is wide enough for plenty of passing. The track is one of six short tracks that the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race on this year. A racetrack that is less than one mile in length is considered a short track. Last year the #14 Ford had a strong sixth place finish at Memphis. Since the Craftsman Truck series began racing at Memphis, there has not been a repeat winner. Crawford and the #14 Milwaukee Electric Tool Ford hope to keep that streak alive this year.
Rick Crawford and the #14 Milwaukee Electric Tool Ford currently hold the longest streak on the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series with 31 consecutive races run with out a DNF (did not finish). This streak shows how strong the team is and their dedication to excellence. "You can't win a race if you can't finish it. We have had fast trucks this year and each race we are getting closer and closer to the winners circle", stated Rick Crawford.
