Crafton returning to ThorSport in 2018

Unlike most athletes, Matt Crafton has spent the majority of his career with just one team – ThorSport Racing.

After two championships, 379 races, 14 wins, 13 poles, 96 top fives and 233 top 10 finishes behind the wheel of the #88 truck (was with Kevin Harvick Racing in 2004 in the #6 truck, 25 races no wins, 6 top 5’s, 17 top 10’s), Duke and Rhonda Thorson have once again picked up the option for the 39-year-old Tulare, Calif.-native to return in 2018.

Crafton, who is currently third in the Camping World Truck standings, has spent all but one of his 17 seasons competing under the ThorSport banner.

"It’s been an honor to be with ThorSport Racing," Crafton told motorsport.com. "I’ve always said I’d be happy to stay in the truck series and end my career in the truck series because it’s just awesome racing. I truly, truly love it here and with the owners I have, you could never ask for better owners. I’ve worked around and seen a lot of owners come and go, but Duke and Rhonda have always been a man and woman of their words.
