JACK SPRAGUE MEMPHIS MOTORSPORTS PARK RACE QUOTES

"We have always run well at Memphis. I really like the track. I have gotten a couple of pole there and a win, so I feel like I have a good feel for how to drive the track. My Xpress Motorsports team has run good there in the past so I am confident going in we will have the Right Truck with a good setup going in to the weekend. Like every short track, track position is key, you have to stay out of trouble and be there at the end.

"Last year we had a really good truck and it looked like we might have been able to capture the win but things didn't fall our way so we are going to go back and give it our best shot this year.

"Our season has been up and down this year. It would be nice to be able to showcase the potential of this team. Everyone on our team knows we are capable of winning races and being a championship contender, we have just been unable to really put together a string of good races. If we can string some solid runs together, we will be right back up near the top of the standings."
