Sprague On Racing at Indianapolis and Celebrating His Memphis Win:

"I'm really looking forward to getting back to racing this weekend at Indianapolis. It was pretty cool to have a couple of weeks off to celebrate our win at Memphis. It was really a big deal for the entire Wyler organization and especially our sponsor Con-way Freight. Both me and my crew chief Tony Furr went and spent some time with some Con-way folks during the time off, and all they could talk about was the win. They are really pumped about our racing program, and they want to see us get back into victory lane. I want to see us get back to the winner's circle too. I said after Memphis that I thought the win would give this young team the shot of confidence it needed. You've seen it before that after a team wins one race, it seems to be a little easier to get that next win. I hope that is the case for us at Indy this weekend. We definitely have momentum on our side - if we can have a little luck on another short track, I think the No. 60 Con-way Freight Toyota could be a tough truck to beat."

Career at O'Reilly Raceway Park:

Sprague has 12 combined career starts at O'Reilly Raceway Park in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series and the NASCAR Busch Series. In nine truck starts, Sprague has scored one pole, two wins and four top-five finishes.

Sprague On O'Reilly Raceway Park:

"O'Reilly Raceway Park is probably one of my favorite tracks that we go to every year. I've had a pole and a couple of wins there, and I've been involved in some great races right down to the checkered flag over the years. With one win under our belt, this Wyler Racing team is hungry for more wins and I can't think of a better place to get our second win than at Indianapolis. It's another short track, so you really have to think about what you are going to do on the track. The key is to keep your nose clean, and that isn't easy to do at a short track. It's a hard track to pass on, so you have really set yourself up. It's going to be hot temperature wise at Indianapolis on Friday. We hope to keep the No. 60 Con-way Freight Toyota's streak hot, too."
