“It was great to come off the truck with a good solid run and collect some little points,” Krawiec said. “With the points battle the way that is going on with the top three guys in the category it is going to be tough. There is no easy round out here, you need every point you can get and I’ve won championships with minimal points and lost them by as much as two and I know how valuable they are.”
