As previously reported, former NASCAR Camping World Truck Series driver Rick Crawford was recently arrested for “attempted enticement of a minor” after allegedly responding to an Internet post offering “taboo” contact with a man and his 12-year-old daughter. More information related to the incident has since been made public.

The post to which Crawford responded actually was created by an undercover Seminole County (Fla.) sheriff’s deputy who was participating in an FBI undercover child sex crimes task force. The 12-year-old girl to which the post referred did not exist.

After responding to the Internet post, Crawford allegedly conversed with the undercover agent via multiple email and texts over the course of two weeks, expressing interest in a rendezvous, including the 12-year-old girl, at a price between $50 and $75. Crawford’s alleged comments included “I want it all,” referring to intercourse and oral sex with the girl, according an affidavit from the undercover officer.

The undercover deputy met Crawford in a Lake Mary, Fla., restaurant parking lot on Feb. 28 and arrested him.

Crawford is being held without bail and is scheduled for a detention hearing in federal court in Orlando at 2 p.m. ET Thursday.

Crawford made 336-career starts in the Camping World Truck Series, resulting in five wins. He last raced in the series in 2012. He more recently was a member of the National Motorsports Appeals Panel that hears appeals from NASCAR team of NASCAR-issued penalties. He recently was removed from the Panel.
