native Rick Crawford started his night back in the pack in 31st at Kentucky Speedway Saturday, but after battling to a 14th place finish, he now finds himself moving up the championship ladder. Crawford moved from fifth to fourth place in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series standings, only 92 points behind leader Johnny Benson.
Crawford said he is excited about the possibility of earning his first truck series’ title.
“I’m having fun driving my truck and I’m having fun competing in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series. And I think you see that by our point’s performance. I would probably put the (championship) trophy at the head of the table and it would be a welcome sight. We’re trying to do that for Circle Bar Racing, Ford Power Stroke Diesel, the Ford F-150 brand and for Rick Crawford. I have to add my name to this list, because I’d love to be called a NASCAR champion when it’s all over.”
Crawford has only six races to go before he returns home to Alabama for the Mountain Dew 250 Presented by Winn-Dixie NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race at Talladega Superspeedway on Oct. 4.
