JACK SPRAGUE QUOTES:

On Milwaukee Mile: "Milwaukee is a track that really suits my driving style. I have had some good runs there in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series over the years. It is a driver's track and is pretty unique being virtually flat. I have always looked forward to racing at Milwaukee. It would be great to take our Chevy Trucks Silverado to victory lane."

On running a one-day event: "Running a one-day event somewhat separates the teams that are really on their game and can unload off the truck fast from a team that may be struggling. We don't get a Happy Hour to do the final fine-tuning before the race so we have to quickly decide on a qualifying setup and then focus on race setup during our one practice session. With racing at night after practicing during the day, we have to make sure there is enough adjustability in the truck to improve it as the race unwinds."
