JACK SPRAGUE, NO. 0 NETZERO PONTIAC - Qualified 14th, Top Rookie:

"We changed some shocks, trackbar, and some wedge. I did all I could do. I was doing all I could do during practice too so it wasn't like I tried any harder. It was just six and a half tenths quicker. That's a good run for the NetZero Pontiac. I was worried about this one. That's the worst we've been in practice since we've been here and it wasn't good. I have struggled in the trucks, in Busch, and everything I've ever done here no matter where I end up."

AS A MICHIGAN NATIVE, IS THERE ANYTHING SPECIFIC AS TO HOW YOU PREPARE FOR A WINSTON CUP RACE ON THIS TRACK COMPARED TO SOME OF THE OTHER RACES YOU'VE RUN?

"Not really. I've never been good here. In the trucks, I'd win the week before I'd come here and just be terrible and then win the next week. In the Busch car we were always terrible. This is the best we've ever run here and I was 35th in practice. I really don't know where that lap came from other than the fact that he told me it would stick, and it stuck."
