JACK SPRAGUE QUOTES:

ON GATEWAY INTERNATIONAL RACEWAY: "I love Gateway. It is a driver's track with the configuration being different at each end. If you have a pretty neutral truck you can get it through both ends pretty decent even through they are so different. You have to shift in one and two so grip is really important to keep the truck glued down. If you have a truck that is very good in one and two, you will be ok in three and four."

TEAM'S SUCCESS AT GATEWAY: "You have to have a team who understands how to give you the truck you need here and I have that with our No. 16 Chevy Trucks Silverado team. They had great runs with both Bliss and Kvapil, which is a huge confidence thing for a driver. We feel like we are ready to give it a heck of a run this weekend."

ON MOMEMTUM FROM KENTUCKY FINISH: "Luck is part of success in racing. But the team's preparation to put you in a position to capitalize on opportunities and make your own luck is the critical part of racing success. We had all of those in Kentucky. Now we move on to Gateway with positive momentum and the monkey off our back and keep doing what we did last weekend."

CREW NOTES: Randy Dean is still on injured reserve with a ligament injury to his middle finger on his left hand. For the third week in a row, the team will have a substitute jackman to be named soon.
