Chatting with Matt Crafton…
You’ve had three second-place finishes at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. What is it about the track that suits your driving style?
“The groove seems to move around a little more – you get to slip and slide a lot more than you do at some of these other mile-and-a-half tracks that we race at. That’s one of my favorite things about mile-and-a-half race tracks, the groove seems to move around, and we get to search for more grip – that’s why I always enjoy going to Las Vegas Motor Speedway. It’s also the closest track to home. I’m from out west, in California, so there are a lot of friends and family from out there that I get to see.”
