Sprague On His Success At The Milwaukee Mile:

"Milwaukee is a track that really suits my driving style. I really love racing in Milwaukee. I have had a win and some really good runs there in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series over the years. Milwaukee is a challenging, technical track that requires you to have a good handling truck. It isn't the easiest place to pass so you have to have the power under the hood to get a good run off the corner and make your pass on the straight away. Luckily, that isn't a problem with our Toyota motors. I have also been the runner-up at Milwaukee several times, so I think the track owes me one. Hopefully, we'll be able to put the No. 60 Con-way Freight Toyota at the front of the field and in Victory Lane at the end of the night."

Career at The Milwaukee Mile:

Sprague has nine career starts at the Milwaukee Mile in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series. He has one win , three top-two finishes and has only finished out of the Top 10 one time in nine starts.

Sprague On The No. 60 Con-way Freight Pit Crew:

Last week at Michigan International Speedway, the No. 60 Con-way Freight pit crew won the weekly pit crew challenge -- the Checkers/Rally's Double Drive-Thru Challenge. The award is given to the pit crew that helps his driver pick up the most spots on pit road during the course of the race.

"The Wyler Racing pit crew was really on top of its game last weekend at Michigan. They were making significant adjustments to the No. 60 Con-way Freight Toyota each time I brought it down pit road, and they were still getting me out of the pits four or five positions higher than I had come in. It's quick stops like that in the pits that helps wins races and in turn helps to win championships. I'm proud of my guys and their performance last weekend at Michigan. I'm sure they'll be at their best again this weekend in Milwaukee. If they keep performing like they have been, I'm confident the No. 60 Con-way Freight Toyota will be in Victory Lane before you know it."
