MATT CRAFTON EARNS SEVENTH TOP-FIVE OF 2018 AT LAS VEGAS MOTOR SPEEDWAY

“We had such a good run at the end. I was pushing the 21 [Sauter], and we weren’t doing really good. I had an idea – the 16 [Moffitt] was running out of gas, and when he ran out of gas, I was locked on the 21’s bumper. I was going to pull out of line at that point to see if I could go by the 21 and about that time, the 16 was there. I had to check up a little bit and lost momentum. Overall, it was a solid finish for us after having to start at the back.”
