Spencer finished 16th after starting 23rd in his Milwaukee debut in 2004. Spencer is currently sixth in NCTS Championship Point Standings, 119 points behind the leader Bobby Hamilton.

Jimmy Spencer on Milwaukee:

"I think Milwaukee pretty good, I was there last year for the first time and the history of Milwaukee is incredible; the fans, the grandstands, unfortunately (smiling) Teddy won, the Ultra team, Teddy just had a really good truck there. We were just off that day, so I'm looking forward to going back. I enjoy the city - Milwaukee is a pretty neat place and I'm looking forward to it."

Milwaukee's one of the few race tracks you don't have a lot of experience. Have you talked to Musgrave for some pointers?

"Definitely. Our trucks are all the same. The No. 1 and No. 2 trucks are both built on the same jigs and bodies and we made a change with our crew. We're trying to get everything so it all works together as a team. We think that'll be a big help. Teddy and I get along fantastically. One thing Ted said was he was glad he had a teammate that he could work with. I feel the same way. I have a lot of respect for Teddy. We don't have to prove anything. We want to win the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series Championship for Ultra Motorsports and Jimmy Smith I think deserves that. The biggest thing Teddy and I have to do is work together and allow the crews to work together. I don't think Smith's ever had that. I helped Ted a little bit at Daytona, he definitely counted on me at St. Louis and he won the race - we ended up finishing third. I think he'll help me at Milwaukee. He'll need help in New Hampshire, he hasn't run well there. Ted and I get along well together and we communicate and that's the big thing you need as a teammate."

-um-
