Newton, IA – Matt Crafton and the No. 88 Rip It/Menards Toyota Tundra finished in 9th in Saturdays American Ethanol 200 at Iowa Speedway. Crafton started the race in the 12th spot and remained in the top-ten until lap 36 when he was forced into the wall. Matt had a fast truck and was able to battle back to a top-ten finish. This race marks Crafton’s 5th top-ten at Iowa Speedway. Continuing his top-ten streak in the past three NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races, Matt moved up into 5th Position in the drivers points standings and is currently 12 points out of the 4th spot. “It was another solid finish for us at Iowa”, said Crafton. “We were able to recover from that earlier wreck and get the No. 88 Rip It/Menards Toyota Tundra into the top-ten. The best part is we are now in the 5th spot in driver point standings.” Next Race:
