Crouch will climb behind the wheel of a Toyota Racing backed Keith Kunz Motorsports midget on Friday and Saturday at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 in Pevely, Mo., which hosts the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League.
“I’m super excited to get back in the car,” he said. “It’s been a long time since I’ve raced and I’m looking forward to the challenge.”
It has been since the middle of July that Crouch last competed. He produced his career-best midget result that weekend, which gives him confidence going into a new track.
“When I think of short and high banked I think of I-44 Riverside Speedway,” he said. “Pevely is bigger than that. From videos I’ve seen I think it’s a bigger version of I-44. We’ve won at I-44 a couple of times and had several top fives so hopefully the transition is similar.”
Crouch was scheduled to race in a trio of POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League races in Illinois last weekend, but all three races were postponed because of rain.
