JACK SPRAGUE , No. 60 Con-way Freight Tundra, Wyler Racing Finished: 2nd

Were you surprised that the No. 75 truck made it without stopping?

"Honestly, I was pretty surprised that (race winner) Dennis (Setzer) was able to make it without stopping. I know that nobody out there gets better fuel mileage than my Toyota Tundra. I pitted with the No. 1 truck (Fike) early in the race, and he still ran out of gas there at the end. I'm not sure how it all happened, but overall, the guys brought me a great truck and we're pretty happy with a second-place finish."

How hard was it for you to work your way through traffic during the race?

"It's always hard to pass here at Mansfield. Especially with the rain coming down and washing the rubber off the track, there was really only one groove to make the trucks work. There was a lot of beating and banging out there, which always happens on these short tracks, but today is was pretty tough to get around guys. We just had to be patient, let the pit stops cycle through, and steadily move to the front."
