Running new timed line under house


Am i ok to run a new Romex line under my house to where I need it? Or do I need conduit or a different type of wire?

How do I secure the wire to the foundation in the crawl space?

Cables with less than three #8 conductors or any cable smaller than #8 need to be installed in holes drilled through the joists or on running boards nailed to the joists. Staples are the standard method.

8 gauge? We're using 14 gauge so just staple to the joists and drill hole through the cross joists then correct?
