Jeb Burton Driver Diary: Qualifying Success, Turkey Hunting and Moving Forward

Since we last talked, we've gotten three races in. Martinsville went well; we ran great all day long. I felt like we should've gotten the win there, but all in all, it was a good points day and we led a bunch of laps. Then we went to Rockingham and got another pole--that was good. In the race, we had a pretty good finish--not as good as I wanted it to be but another good points day. Read More »

Truckin’ Thursdays: Matt Crafton On ThorSport’s Recent Success

Just four races into the 2013 season, ThorSport Racing has visited Victory Lane in three of four events, while drivers Matt Crafton and Johnny Sauter sit one-two in the Camping World Truck Series championship standings. Despite a lackluster year last season, both Crafton and Sauter have finished in the top 10 in points for six and four consecutive year, respectively, making their organization the closest thing to "dynasty" you can get in one of NASCAR's lower divisions.
