Saturdays race marks Crafton’s 22nd start at Martinsville Speedway
“Martinsville is a race where track position means everything,” said Crafton. “It is important to qualify in the front, and it is key to maintain that position. Everyone likes to run on the bottom, everyone wants to be there and that makes it difficult to make moves and pass.”
Crafton currently stands in the sixth spot in the 2012 Camping World Truck Series driver championship point standings, six points out of fifth.
