Carl Joiner has been a crew chief in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series for seven years, all of which have been with the driver of the No. 88 ThorSport Racing Toyota, Matt Crafton. 

Together, Joiner and Crafton won back-to-back championships in 2013 and 2014. They are the only team in the series to win consecutive titles.

Joiner has 139 races under his belt with 12 wins, 55 top-fives, 101 top-tens and seven poles.

Looking ahead to Dover, Joiner and Crafton have made six starts at the Monster Mile together, posting one win, five top-fives, and ten top-tens. Crafton has completed 1,102 of a possible 1,147 laps.

Crafton is in seventh in the standings right now, 59 points back from the standings lead. This season he has posted one top-five and one top-ten finish in four starts.

Will Dover be where Crafton gets his first win of the season? Could be, it was where he got his first win in the 2016 season, leading 76 laps.
