Sprague On Mansfield Motorsports Speedway:

"Mansfield is just a little bull ring. You drive the higher side of the race track versus the lower side because of the progressive banking. It's just a rooting, gouging place. It's a lot of fun. And if the truck is set up good, you can really race at Mansfield."

"I'm really looking forward to getting back to Mansfield. I have a win and a second-place finish there, so I'm pretty confident going into the race. On top of that, Mansfield is a home state track for my team owners -- Jeff and David Wyler. So there's definitely some added pressure there -- I want to win really bad for them in their backyard. I know it would be very special for Wyler Racing to get its first ever victory in Ohio. My No. 60 Con-way Freight Toyota has had some great runs this season, but we haven't been able to get it into victory lane just yet. I think that Mansfield could be the track for us to finally get the checkered flag."

Career at Mansfield Motorsports Speedway:

Sprague has two career starts at Mansfield Motorsports Speedway in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series. Sprague won the inaugural NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race from the pole (2004). He followed up that performance with a runner-up finish in 2005. This will be Sprague's first run in the No. 60 Con-way Freight Toyota Tundra at Mansfield Motorsports Speedway.
