Interior grade wiring in a crawl space

I need to run 10/2 wiring from the subpanel on the east wall of the first floor of an addition to the west side of the crawl space below it where two 40-gallon water heaters will be installed. I had originally planned to run the cable up the wall, through the joists supporting the second floor, and down the west opposite wall into the crawl space. But it would be a shorter and easier if I ran it down the west wall into the crawlspace, then across the joists to where the water heaters will be.

The wiring I bought is the made for interior applications (orange). Is it okay if I used it in the crawl space? Also, since it's a crawl space and will never be finished, can I staple the cable to the bottom of the joists rather than through them?

Thanks!

John

As long as the space is dry, then yes to both your questions.
