Matt Crafton and the No. 88 Fisher Nuts/Menards Toyota Tundra started the Lucas Oil 150 at Phoenix International Raceway in the 5th position. Crafton had a good truck and worked his way up to the 3rd spot and maintained within the top ten until the 4th caution of the night. On lap 55, Crafton tangled with the No. 7 truck and ended up going to the garage to repair the damage. Crafton got back out to finish the race in 20th.
Crafton is currently 6th in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Driver Points Standings with one race to go in the 2012 season.
“Well, its not the night that we had hoped for here at Phoenix”, said Crafton. “We led the first practice and we qualified in the fifth spot. We had a strong truck and were in the front of the field when we were involved in a wreck. Our focus is now on going to Miami and finishing the season on a positive note.”
The NCWTS and ThorSport Racing head to Homestead-Miami Speedway on Friday, November 16th for the Ford EcoBoost 200 airing on SPEED at 7:30PM EST.
