It was the last race of the 2012 NCWTS Season for the No. 88 Ideal Door/Menards Toyota Tundra at Homestead-Miami Speedway last Friday. Crafton started the race in the 12th position and had a solid race truck. The No. 88 was able to race within the top 5 for the majority of the race with a best position of 2nd. Crafton was unfortunately caught up in a late race incident with only a few laps to go, resulting in a 12th place finish.
Crafton finished 6th in the 2012 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Driver Points Standings.
“It has been a hard year for us all at ThorSport Racing,” said Crafton. “We have had some really fast Toyotas and some great engines from Triad. We don’t really have anything to show for all of the hard work that everyone has given this season. I am looking forward to 2013 and what that season will have in store for us. Now, it is time to regroup and enjoy the holidays. I want to thank everyone who has helped us this year, especially Duke and Rhonda Thorson, Menards and all of the associate sponsors. Thank you to Toyota and Triad Racing Engines, and everyone else involved in getting the #88 truck out on the track at each race. The guys on the crew have worked tirelessly throughout the season and I want to thank them all for their hard work and look forward to working with them in 2013.”
