Sandusky, OH – Matt Crafton and the No. 88 Goof Off/Menards Toyota Tundra head to Talladega Superspeedway for the Fred’s 250 Powered by Coca-Cola on Saturday, October 6th. Crafton has been racing trucks at this speedway since 2006 with his best finish of 4th in 2010. “I really enjoy the actual racing at Talladega and being at that track, but there’s also a part of you that is always a little anxious going there because so much of what happens there is outside of your control,” said Crafton. “It’s all about finding the right people to work with, developing a plan and making sure you’re still on the track for the checkered flag.” After his second place finish last weekend at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, Crafton now stands in the sixth spot in the 2012 Camping World Truck Series driver championship point standings, three points out of fourth.
