The Craftsman Truck Series is the division of NASCAR, which features 700-plus horsepower, full-size pickup trucks. The Power Stroke Diesel 200 will be driver Murphy’s Craftsman Truck Series debut.

“As a new driver, I have no provisional points, all I can say is please pray for no rain so that we can have qualifying, We tried to qualify for the Mansfield Ohio race in May, but it was cancelled due to weather” Murphy said.
