Chatting with Matt Crafton…

“Las Vegas is always a track I look forward to competing at. With being from out west, I have a lot of family that comes to the race. I’ve had a lot of success at the track, too. A win has been elusive, but I think we have a great shot this weekend to change that. We have momentum, and it would be great to lock ourselves in the Round of Six with a win.“
