This marks the first pole award for a Toyota at Daytona International Speedway in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series. This marks Jack Sprague's (60) first career pole at the Daytona International Speedway and 30th career pole and third with Wyler Racing.

Toyota Tundra drivers occupy nine of the top-12 starting positions for Friday night's NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race. Tyler Walker (36) was the top qualifying rookie as he will start from the sixth position in tomorrow night's event.

JACK SPRAGUE , No. 60 Con-Way Freight Toyota Tundra, Wyler Racing:
Starting 1st 50.137 seconds, 179.508 mph

On your qualifying run:

"I figured if it would run a 24 like it did this morning that I would be happy with it. That was pretty incredible, but I really wanted to run a 49.90, but I am happy with that."

On winning the pole for tomorrow night's NCTS race:

"The whole team built me a great truck. The group of people assembled on this team is unbelievable and the Toyota engine we have is unbelievable. The truck runs great, and has been great in the draft all weekend. I had a little incident this morning, but the boys fixed it up great, and still allowed me to get the pole. I really think we have a shot at winning this thing."
