Crafton Camping World Truck Series King At 1.5-Mile Tracks

Matt Crafton has been crowned NASCAR Camping World Truck Series champion two seasons in a row.

A primary reason for that unprecedented feat: He’s been king at 1.5-mile tracks.

In nine starts at intermediate courses dating back to Kansas last year, the No. 88 Toyota Tundra driver has tallied two wins, three runner ups and nine top-10 showings. His average finish in the nine starts – 3.4.

Crafton will attempt to continue his reign at 1.5-mile tracks in Friday’s Toyota Tundra 250 at Kansas Speedway (8:30 p.m. ET on FOX Sports 1). He has started all 14 NCWTS races at Kansas, more than any other driver. He is also tied for the track record with three top-five finishes.

Notes: Teams in both the NASCAR Sprint Cup and Camping World Truck Series will run the same combination of left- and right-side tires at Kansas this weekend . . . while these teams ran this left-side tire code (D-4604) at this track last season, this is the first time they have run this right-side code (D-4630) at Kansas . . . for Sprint Cup teams, compared to what they ran in at Kansas in 2014, this right-side tire features a construction change that brings it into line with what is run at other speedways . . . Cup teams have run this right-side at both Las Vegas and Talladega already this season . . . for Camping World Truck teams, who ran their own right-side at Kansas last May, this tire features both a construction and slight compound change . . . as on all NASCAR ovals greater than one mile in length, teams are required to run inner liners in all four tire positions at Kansas . . . air pressure in those inner liners should be 12-25 psi greater than that of the outer tire.
