JACK SPRAGUE, NO. 0 NETZERO PONTIAC GRAND PRIX:

ON THE PRACTICE INCIDENT "I don't know. I was in the middle, [Steve] Park was on the outside and he didn't stay up and he hit me in the right front, drove me into [Mike] Skinner and it was all over."

HAD PRACTICE BEEN WILD UP TO THAT POINT? "No, it was pretty good, until then."

STEVE PARK, NO. 1 PENNZOIL CHEVROLET MONTE CARLO:

ON THE PRACTICE INCIDENT "I didn't really see anything because it happened right behind me. Everybody kind of slowed down because somebody put oil down in one and two and that got pretty bad. Everybody started checking up to avoid the oil, and I guess Jack Sprague got into the '4' car and he bounced off of me. I was up by the wall and couldn't go any higher except for the grandstands. When I felt him rubbing on me, I was like there was no place to go because the wall was right there.

"Fortunately, our car was able to get through it pretty unscathed - just a little wheel mark on the side of it and a little bumper tag in the back, so we got lucky."

MIKE SKINNER, NO. 4 KODAK PONTIAC GRAND PRIX:

ON THE PRACTICE INCIDENT "To the best of my knowledge, we got ran into by a rookie. The right rear corner on our car is crunched a lot. Whether he got pushed down there or not, I don't know.

"That's going to happen. I've caused it before and I've been a victim of it before. It's just unfortunate that it has to happen right there at the end of a practice."
