2014 NCWTS Driver Matt Crafton (ThorSport Racing) - Photo Credit: Matt Sullivan Photography/Getty Images HOMESTEAD, Fla.— Call it superstition. Call it the ultimate exercise in compartmentalization. With a 25-point lead entering the final NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race of the season Friday night at Homestead-Miami Speedway (8 p.m. ET on FOX Sports 1), Matt Crafton steadfastly refuses to discuss the prospect of a second straight championship — something no other driver has accomplished in the 20-year history of the series. “If it’s meant to be, it’s meant to be,” Crafton told the NASCAR Wire Service after the NASCAR Nationwide Series and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Championship Press Conference at the 1.5-mile track. “I’ve stuck with that saying since Daytona.

Logano led 150 laps in winning the first NCWTS race of his career and becoming the 26th driver to take a checkered flag in each of NASCAR’s top three national touring series. After Crafton led the field to green on Lap 257, Logano and ... FULL STORY »
