Consistant Crafton looking for "Trifecta" of firsts at Pocono

Matt Crafton, driver of the No. 88 Chi Chi's/Menards Toyota Tundra, enters the 6th Annual Pocono Mountains 150 at Pocono (Pa.) Raceway with a 14 point lead on the competition after 11 races this season. Although the field is invaded with Sprint Cup Series regulars, Crafton and his ThorSport Racing team are confident they can keep their consistency going in 2015, and bring not only ThorSport Racing, but Toyota and Triad Racing Technologies, their first win at the 2.5-mile "Tricky Triangle."


With only one finish outside the top-10 in five starts at Pocono Raceway, Crafton leads all active NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) drivers with the most top-10 finishes (4). In fact, the ThorSport Racing driver is one of only five drivers to run all five NCWTS races at the Long Pond, Pa. track, has finished on the lead lap in all five races, and has completed 100 percent of the laps attempted (276 of 276), a combination that could make Crafton the sixth different winner on Saturday afternoon at the "Tricky Triangle."


Sounding off-Matt Crafton:

"Pocono is a lot of fun, and I look forward to going back this year. We've made a lot of changes from what we've run there in the past. We were a decent truck there last year, but weren't quite the way we needed to be. We feel like we've got a good idea of the direction we need to go, and hopefully we've got a good Menards Toyota Tundra for this weekend."


"Pocono is a pretty short race, and if you're off at all, you only get one pit stop during the race to make adjustments. Therefore, you need to be pretty close when you start the race."
