Sprague On Racing at Nashville Superspeedway:

"I really like racing at Nashville Superspeedway. The track is smooth, fast and it has plenty of racing room. I haven't had a lot of luck at Nashville in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series, but I have had two really good runs there in the Busch Series, including a win. I sure would like to change my fortune there in the truck series and get at least a top-10 there -- especially this weekend since our manufacturer Toyota is sponsoring the race. Nashville Superspeedway is typically my type of race track, so I would like to get the No. 60 Con-way Freight Toyota out front early and keep us there."

Six Million Dollar Man:

With a finish of third or higher at the Nashville Superspeedway this Saturday, Jack Sprague will become the first driver in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series to reach $6 million in career winnings. Currently, Sprague has $5,982,645 -- just over $17,000 shy of the record.

Career at Nashville Superspeedway:

Sprague has five career starts at Nashville Superspeedway in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series and the NASCAR Busch Series. Although he doesn't have a top-10 finish at the 1.33-mile tri-oval in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series, Sprague has enjoyed success at the Nashville Superspeedway. In two starts in the Busch Series, Sprague scored a runner-up finish and a victory.

Sprague On Rebounding From Indianapolis:

"We had a great run going at Indianapolis on Friday night before we got into another truck and got some damage that caused us to lose several laps. The points battle is so close right now, our 28th-place finish dropped us four spots in the points. This Wyler Racing team is a championship caliber team, and if we are going to challenge for a top spot in the points, we can't afford to make any more mistakes. All of us -- the driver, the pit crew -- will have to be on top of our game each and every week so we can contend for the title that I believe we can win.

"I would really like to get back on track at Nashville because that Gibson guitar is one of the coolest trophies we race for all season long. I have two guitars -- one from the truck race at the Fairgrounds in 1997 and one from the Busch race in 2002. I would love to add a third guitar to that collection. It would look good beside the Elvis trophy from Memphis."
