Sprague On Racing at Las Vegas Motor Speedway:

"To be honest, I'm actually a little disappointed that they have changed the track at Las Vegas. I was pretty partial to the track the way it was. It was a great flat track, and I love racing on flat tracks. I had two wins and three poles on the old Las Vegas track, and I would like to keep having those kinds of good finishes. I've heard the track is really fast, so I'm sure that it will be a great race for the fans. I just hope that I like the new configuration as much as I liked the old track.

"This Wyler Racing team had a rough day at New Hampshire last week. Anything that could go wrong did, so we're hoping that the cards we are dealt in Las Vegas are a little better. The No. 60 Con-way Freight Toyota is a team that can be up front every single week, and we should be running in the Top 10 every single week. Our goal is to finish in the top-five in points and to do that, we're going to have to have some luck and some solid finishes. I would like to get momentum going our way to finish out the season with a strong run at Las Vegas."

Career at Las Vegas Motor Speedway:

'Lady Luck' has been on Sprague's side almost every NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. In eight career starts in a truck at the Las Vegas track, Sprague has scored three poles and two wins. He has finished outside of the top-five only once in eight starts -- and that was due to a blown engine in 2004. Sprague also has a sixth-place finish in Busch Series competition. Will the track's new configuration be as kind to Sprague?

Wyler Racing Hotel Partner In Vegas:

The Wyler Racing team welcomes associate sponsor the Stratosphere Hotel & Casino to the team this weekend at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The Stratosphere logo will be placed in front of the rear tire on the No. 60 Con-way Freight Toyota. Sprague will join a handful of other NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series drivers in an autograph session at the Stratosphere on Fri., Sept. 22 at 9:30 p.m.

"The entire Wyler Racing team is looking forward to staying at the Stratosphere while we are in Las Vegas. Hopefully, we'll be able to get some good luck to come our way at the Stratosphere and on the race track. We'd love to get the No. 60 Con-way Freight Toyota back to Victory Lane."
