From their first start in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series at Walt Disney World Speedway, in 1997, to making a "Bold Move" to win a dramatic 3 wide finish on NASCAR's biggest stage, to last years 3 wide battle to win at one of NASCAR's smallest tracks, Rick Crawford and his Circle Bar Truck Corral Team have made making "Bold Moves" a lifestyle.
Over the last 13 seasons of Truck Series competition Crawford has raced his way into the Series record books by starting more events and logging more miles than any driver in Camping World Truck Series history. Crawford's trek of over 55,000 miles in the Truck Series is more than 22 trips from Daytona to Los Angeles. On March 7th, 2009, at California Speedway he was the first driver in the series to make his 300th consecutive start. While other drivers and teams have come and gone, Crawford and team owner Tom Mitchell have become the heart of the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series.
The record books show five victories, four poles, 75 top-fives, 157 top-ten finishes, over 52,000 laps and over $5,000,000.00 in purses collected by the Circle Bar team. One victory made NASCAR history, a three wide photo finish to win at Daytona International Speedway. The Daytona victory was so incredible, the Speed Channel chose it as the greatest finish in Series history.
