Three-time Craftsman Truck Series champion Jack Sprague was fired Tuesday by Kevin Harvick Inc. after 20 races in which his No. 2 Chevrolet ran well behind the No. 33 of defending champion and current points-leading teammate Ron Hornaday Jr.
Mike Skinner sneaked into the lead and held off Jack Sprague for the final 66 laps Saturday, helped along by numerous cautions that made the Kroger 200 Craftsman Truck Series race at Martinsville look like a brawl.
Jack Sprague took the lead when NASCAR took it away from Ted Musgrave with 61 laps to go Saturday and won for the first time in 13 career starts at tight and tricky Martinsville Speedway in NASCAR's Craftsman Truck Series.
