Sprague On Being The Defending Winner At Texas Motor Speedway:

"I think that it definitely gives you confidence to go into a track knowing that you were the guy celebrating in Victory Lane last year. It makes you the guy to beat. We ran well at Texas in the fall with the same truck we are taking back this weekend. This Wyler Racing team has been getting better every week. We're learning how to make the truck better and the guys are performing better pit stops each race. I think we can go to Texas this weekend and contend for the win. I would love a repeat performance of last June."

Career at Texas Motor Speedway:

Sprague has twelve career starts at Texas Motor Speedway in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series --including two wins and one pole. He has three Busch and Nextel Cup Series starts combined at the Texas track.

Sprague On What It Takes To Win At Texas Motor Speedway:

With two wins to his credit at Texas Motor Speedway, Sprague knows what it takes to capture the checkered flag.

"You have to have a lot of horsepower under the hood, and that is a non-issue with our Toyota motor. We have the horsepower. You also have to handle well. We weren't perfect at Texas last fall, but we weren't bad either. We're going to go to Texas with our notes from what we ran in the fall, adjust on it, tweak on it and hopefully give Todd Bodine and the Germain Racing guys a run for their money."

"Todd and that team have it going on. Their pit stops are awesome. They do a great job of getting his truck set up. Week in and week out, they are the team to beat. Do I think we can beat them? Yes. This Wyler Racing Team is just going to get better and better. We are a very young team, but the guys are doing a great job. We're sitting sixth in points, and we're not that far out of fourth. We're just going to have to continue to improve each and every week, and I think the No. 60 Con-way Freight Toyota will be a contender for this championship at the end of the season."
