PLAYERS: Matt Crafton

Long Pond, PA – Matt Crafton and the No. 88 JELD-WEN/Menards Toyota Tundra had a solid race at Saturdays 3rd Annual Pocono Mountains 125 at Pocono Raceway. This is Crafton’s second top-five finish at this track. Starting in 9th position, Matt kept his truck within the top-ten during the 50-lap race, finishing in fourth.

Continuing with his top-five streak in the past five NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races, Matt has moved up into the 5th position in the driver point standings.

“It was a pretty good day for the #88 JELD-WEN/Menards Toyota Tundra,” said Crafton. “We had some pretty good restarts, but were tight through the tunnel turn and turn 3, that’s where I was losing all of my time. We finished in 4th and now I am in the 5th spot in the point standings.”

The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series has a weekend off before heading into a three-week stretch of racing starting with Michigan on the 18th, Bristol on the 22nd and Atlanta on the 31st.
