* Leffler back in the seat of the No. 38 Great Clips Camry... This weekend at New Hampshire International Speedway (NHIS), Leffler will return to the seat of the No. 38 machine. He will remain in the No. 38 for the remainder of the season with the exception of events at Bristol Motor Speedway, Atlanta Motor Speedway and Homestead-Miami Speedway where he will pilot the team's No. 10 entry.

* New Hampshire Motor Speedway, by the numbers... In seven NASCAR Nationwide Series starts at NHIS, Leffler has one top-five and two top-10 finishes. His best performance at the one-mile track came in 2004 when he started and finished third.

* Who's on the pit box...Veteran crew chief, Eddie Pardue, will call the shots for Leffler and the No. 38 team this weekend at NHIS. Pardue has spent the last ten years at Roush Racing where he has moved quickly through the ranks and has served as a crew chief since 2006 for the team's Nationwide Series program.

* Home Sweet Home for "Trucker Matt"

This weekend marks a rare return trip home for Matt Weaver, transport driver for the No. 38 Great Clips team. A native of Keene, NH, Weaver looks forward to spending the weekend with family and friends and to bragging about his one year-old son, Logan.

Leffler on racing at New Hampshire International Speedway

"New Hampshire isn't characterized as a short track, but it definitely has the characteristics of one. Passing is tough and you have to be aggressive. You really have to work on getting your car up off the corner without getting loose on exit. We have had some strong runs in recent weeks and I feel like we can continue building on that momentum and bring home a solid top-five finish and maybe even contend for the win this weekend."
