Matt Crafton, driver of the No. 88 Black Label Bacon/Menards Toyota Tundra made his 400th career start in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series in Friday night’s TheHouse.com 225. Starting fifth, Crafton finished seventh in Stage 1, and third in Stage 2, but a spin on lap 107 of 150 relegated the ThorSport Racing driver to a 16th-place finish in the ninth annual event at the 1.5-mile track.
The two-time champion also qualified for the NASCAR Playoffs and will race for a third championship in 2017.
“This was absolutely the most evil thing I’ve ever driven – I just spun out. Hopefully, we can get our stuff together for the Playoffs, so we can compete for another championship. We’ll be good though, we made it here and now we just have to focus on the races ahead of us.”
