Chatting with Matt Crafton…
Who do you think your biggest competition is in the Round of 6?
“Racing for championships in the Truck Series, and even back in the Southwest Tour, and late models, you go out there and take care of yourself. Race your own race, and see how the cards fall at that point. I know I say it all the time, but I truly believe it, if it’s meant to be, it will happen.”
You won the fall race at Martinsville in 2015, and you’ve been competitive at the final four tracks on the 2017 schedule. Which track do you think is your best shot to punch your ticket to the next Round?
“I truly don’t see one as a bad shot, quite honestly. I’ve won at two out of the three tracks in this Round – I’ve got a couple grandfather clocks from Martinsville, and a couple cowboy hats from Texas. One of the tracks I’d really like to win at, and we’ve had some good runs there, is Phoenix. Quite honestly, I don’t want to wait that long, but I’ve always had that track circled on the schedule. It would be really nice to go out west and win one, in front of a lot of friends and family. Honestly, the next four race tracks have been so good to us.”
