JACK SPRAGUE QUOTES:

ON RACING AT THE 'MONSTER MILE: "I wasn't that good in Dover last year and hopefully the Chevy Truck Chevrolet will be better this year. I've had some really good runs in Dover even in the Cup car but just haven't had a win. I just need to win a race I don't care where it's at. Hopefully it will be a victory this week in Dover in the No. 16 Chevrolet Silverado NASCAR Craftsman Truck.

"I'm not very happy where I am in points at this point in the season. The guys put a good truck underneath me week in and week out. We have the right truck in our Chevy Silverado but we've been on a roll of misfortunes so far. It's going to take not getting run over; finishing the race and not have any trouble. Its time to go racing, its time to race more often and starting the upcoming streak of Craftsman Truck Series races should help. You can get some momentum rolling and it helps. It helps my focus from track to track and I seem to pick up when we are racing consistently."
