Sprague Phoenix International Raceway Quotes

"Phoenix has always been one of my favorite tracks to run in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series. It seems to really suit my driving style and I have been fortunate to win a few poles and races there. I haven't race there since 2002 so I am looking forward to being back there in the Chevy Trucks Silverado for the Silverado race. We had certainly had hoped to have more wins under our belts and have our Chevy Trucks Silverado team higher in the points by the time we reached the Phoenix race this season but this has been a building year for us. Phoenix is a good place for me and for our team to really set the tone for next season. We are determined to stay in the top-ten in points but we really want the race wins to build momentum for next season.

It will be like the old days having Hornaday back in a Chevrolet truck as well as part of our Team Silverado. I am looking forward to racing against my old buddy again. We had some great battles on the track throughout the years and developed a great friendship off the track. Phoenix was one of the places that either he or I seemed to win and the other ran second for several years. It will be a fun weekend for all of us."
