Johnny Sauter – MP Racing ThorSport

NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series Driver:

Johnny Sauter began racing in 1996, after fulfilling a promise he made to his father, short-track racer Jim Sauter, to finish high school before he started his career. The Necedah, Wisconsin native joined the American Speed Association (ASA) in 1998. In 2001, led by crew chief Joe Shear, Jr., Sauter was named ASA Champion and Rookie of the Year with a record 10 wins.

That same year he made his first start in what is now known as the NASCAR Xfinity Series. He shared the ride for the 2003 season, winning the Xfinity Owners Championship. Sauter also made his NASCAR Cup Series debut and his NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series debut that year.

Sauter moved to the Gander Trucks full-time in 2009 and earned his first win at Las Vegas Motor Speedway that year. In 2016, Sauter claimed his first Gander Trucks Championship following a season which included three wins, one pole, 12 top fives and a career-high 19 top-ten finishes.

Sauter continued to earn his place in the record books in 2017 and 2018, winning 10 additional races and securing championship four berths in both seasons; becoming the only driver in the series to appear in all three championship battles since the inception of the Chase format

Like a true real racer, Sauter continues to compete on a local level in his home state of Wisconsin, where he resides with his wife Cortney and their four children. In 2020 Johnny Sauter will join forces with MP Racing ThorSport and race alongside three time champion Matt Crafton.

Matt Crafton – MP Racing ThorSport

NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series Driver:

Matt Crafton climbed back into the championship hunt in 2019, with a bid in the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series Playoffs. The two-time series champion navigated his way into the through the unique three Round Playoff format where he was claimed the Driver Championship for the third time in his career. The Tulare, California native also extended the Gander Trucks record for consecutive starts to 450, since his series debut at Auto Club Speedway in November 2000 – passing four-time Gander Trucks champion Ron Hornaday, Jr with 360 starts in the 2015 Gander Trucks race at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Additionally, the MP Racing/ThorSport driver capped off his 19th full-time season in the Gander Trucks.

Crafton began his racing career in go-karts, mini sprints and midgets before following his father, Danny Crafton, who had his own legacy on the West Coast, into late models. When Danny was injured with three races left in the 1996 season, he selected his son as his substitute. Crafton’s performance in those races led Danny to hang up his helmet and step out of his familiar No. 46 to allow his son to take over. The younger Crafton rewarded his family’s faith in 2000 by winning four races en route to the prestigious NASCAR Featherlite Southwest Series championship.

Following Crafton’s championship in the 2000 Featherlite Southwest Series, MP Racing/ThorSport named him the driver of the No. 88 truck for the 2000 season finale at Auto Club Speedway, beginning the series’ longest-running driver-team relationship. Crafton became a fixture in the Gander Trucks, finishing inside the top-10 in the standings, the last 11 seasons, and drove his way into the NASCAR history books becoming the first Gander back-to-back champion, winning titles in 2013 and 2014.

The longest tenured full-time driver at JR Motorsports with MPR partnership, Allgaier now has eight wins since joining the team in 2016 and 11 career NXS victories in 306 starts (along with 85 top fives and 176 top 10s). In 2019, he surpassed 500 laps led for the second consecutive season, pacing the field for 607 circuits.

Allgaier found a love for the sport a young age. He was born in 1986 to Mike and Dorothy Allgaier, two individuals with a passion for racing. Young Allgaier climbed behind the wheel of his first race car, a quarter-midget roadster, when he was just 5 years old. Showing instant talent, Allgaier became a five-time quarter-midget champion by the age of 12. From quarter-midgets, he advanced to midget and micro-sprint features and then began racing in the UMP Late Model Series.
