JACK SPRAGUE , No. 60 Con-Way Freight Tundra, Wyler Racing: Finishing position: 3rd

How was your race?

"It's a great day for the Con-Way Freight Toyota. I'd like to thank TRD, Tony Furr (Crew Chief) and all the guys, they brought me great stuff again. It would take me a little bit to get going on the restarts and I needed the long green runs, so I wish I had about two more laps there. I don't know that I had anything for the 99. Tony said we were a little bit faster at the end. It would just take me so long to roll. The guys did a great job."

How did that green flag pit stop propel you to the front of the field?

"That pit stop was really cool wasn't it! We had a really good green flag pit stop and that put us into the lead. Then unfortunately we came in second behind Erik (Darnell) and a lug nut hung in the socket and we went out fourth or fifth. That's going to happen. I got two good ones. It may not have affected the outcome because he took off so fast and I couldn't run with him the first 20 laps I think the fastest truck won."

What do you think about the manifold adjustment that NASCAR mandated in the Truck Series?

"I had a pretty good motor. I don't think I could tell that there was any difference at all. TRD gives us a great motor every weekend. I was not hurting against anyone down the straightaway. I don't think it was a huge number, I don't even know the difference, it might have been seven or eight horsepower. My motor ran really strong, I could tell a difference at all."
