Sprague released, Harvick back in the Truck

Kevin Harvick Inc. officials announced Monday that driver Jack Sprague has been released from the No. 2 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series entry.

KHI co-owner Kevin Harvick will assume driving duties of the No. 2 Chevrolet for the upcoming Truck race at Martinsville (Va.) Speedway on Oct. 18. Details on the driver lineup for the remainder of the season will be announced at a later date.

“The performance of the No. 2 team was not up to either Jack or KHI’s standards,” Harvick said. “My main goal now is to prepare the team to run for a championship in 2009. I am looking forward to getting behind the wheel in Martinsville. It should be a lot of fun.”
