Sprague, NetZero Chevy ready to rumble at Milwaukee.
WEST ALLIS, WI (June 23, 2002) - After a well-deserved weekend off with his family, Jack Sprague and his No. 24 NetZero Chevrolet Monte Carlo will return to action in the GNC Live Well 250 NASCAR Busch Series event at 'The Milwaukee Mile' this weekend.
"I'm ready to get back to racing, especially since we didn't have the best finish a few weeks ago," said Sprague, who crashed early and eventually finished 16th in the most recent NBS event at Kentucky Speedway. "Our schedule is so busy, but when your last race isn't a great one, you're ready to get back in the car and I'm definitely ready and what better place for me to go than a short track. Another one-mile track - everyone knows that's right up my alley and that I can't get enough of him or her. I just hope it all pays off this weekend."
Sunday's race will mark Sprague's eighth visit to the Badger State, but only his second in a NASCAR Busch Series car. His only previous NBS try at Milwaukee came in the 1993 Havoline 250 where he started sixth only to have mechanical gremlins produce a 32nd-place finish.
Sprague has shined in seven NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series races at Milwaukee qualifying in the Top-10 for each including a trio of Bud Pole Position Awards. Sprague also boasts one Truck Series win at Milwaukee - the 1996 Sears Auto Center 200.
"Milwaukee is a great little facility," said Sprague. "I've never had a bad start or finish there, at least in the truck series we were always pretty close to a win. I don't know how we'll be in a Busch car, but I doubt we'll be too bad considering how things have been getting better and better every week. I'd really like to pull off a good finish and gain some points. What's great about my team and that no matter what happened during the last race, whether it was something major or something small, they always get to the next race with clean heads and pumped up to do a great job. We'll need to have good stops and maintain track position if we're looking to be around at the end."
The GNC Live Well 250 NASCAR Busch Series race at The Milwaukee Mile will take the green flag Sunday, June 30 at 1:30 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time. The event will be the 17th of 34 NASCAR Busch Series races this season and will be telecast live on FX. MRN Radio will also broadcast the race live.
