JACK SPRAGUE QUOTES:

ON DAYTONA: (Sprague was involved in an eight-truck incident as the white flag flew on the 100-lap race) - "Man, I tell ya, that was the smartest race we have ever run. We just rode around in our Chevy Trucks Silverado all night in the back with a group of trucks I knew we could draft well with when it was time to go to the front. We were all set to get the best finish we've ever had at Daytona. Chris (Showalter, crew chief) and this entire Chevy Trucks crew worked so hard and we had the best truck a driver could ask for here. Man I hate it for everyone on our team and all the people at Chevrolet that give us such great support for this program. We were headed to the front and had something for them there at the end."

ON 2005 NCTS SEASON: "I said it a bunch last year and it is even more true this year, this is not the old NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series. The level of the competition in 2004 was strong, this year; the intensity level has gone way up. We have a stronger group of veterans hungry to run up front and win. The group of young guys wanting to make a name for themselves is stronger than ever. Every lap of every race is going to be critical to make a run for wins, which ultimately translates to a run for the championship. It is going to be the best season yet for the Series and I am excited to be a part of it.J

"Yes, I am excited about racing against by old buddy Ron Hornaday, but it is even better to have him as a part of our factory Chevrolet Silverado team program. His experience and talent will bring even that much more to the table to get our Chevy Trucks Silverado up front as well as the other three trucks."

ON RACING AT CALIFORNIA SPEEDWAY: "Since the first NCTS race at California Speedway, I have loved that track. I have had pretty good luck there. It is a fun track to race. It is one of those places that we could come race more than once a season and I would be happy! Itis a great track and the races are always good for the fans.

"Having back to back races this year rather than such a gap as last year is better for everyone. It is much easier to get a momentum going and keep it going when the races are closer together."
