Crockett Heading to Caney Valley and I-30 This Week With ASCS National Tour
Inside Line Promotions - BROKEN ARROW, Okla. (June 22, 2020) - Roger Crockett will pick back up with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour this week when the series has its first race in more than 15 weeks.
Crockett is slated to compete on Thursday at Caney Valley Speedway in Caney, Kan., and on Saturday at I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark.
"I've never been to Caney Valley and I've only been to I-30 a few times," he said. "We've had some good runs there and some not so good runs there. The first time I raced there I did really good when I drove Paul Silva's car a long time ago. The last couple of times I've been there we had problems with our car. I think it's also a track where a good draw is important. Having a smooth night isn't the easiest thing."
Crockett's best result at I-30 Speedway came in 2005 when he earned a second-place finish. He also added a third-place run in 2004.
Crockett enters this week's competition third in the ASCS National Tour standings and is one of only two drivers to score a top-10 finish during three of the first four races this year.
"I feel more confident than when we started the year," he said. "We've learned a lot about our car and ran some 410 races. I think we've got some things figured out that will make us better. Any time you go from a 410 to a 360 it'll slow things down, too."
