SPARTA, Ky. -- Rick Crawford missed the NASCAR Craftsman
Truck Series race Saturday night at Kentucky Speedway after
crashing during qualifying, ending his series-record streak of
consecutive starts at 210.
The 46-year-old Crawford spun his Ford coming out of the second
turn and hit the wall along the backstretch. He exited the truck
under his own power and was released from a hospital after a series
Boris Said, a commentator for the Speed Channel who took
Crawford's place in a backup truck, said Crawford had concussion.
Said, who last drove in a Truck Series race in April 2000, was knocked out of the race during a five-truck accident on lap 52. He
later resumed his TV duties.
