JASON LEFFLER, No. 38 Great Clips Toyota Camry, Braun Racing
Finished: 4th

Did the call on your last pit stop help you to a top-five finish tonight? "Todd Lohse (crew chief) and the guys made a great call doing two tires at the end. He had that planned from the start and it worked out pretty good for us. Our car was pretty good. It's a brand new car and we'll take it to ORP (O'Reilly Raceway Park) and tune on it a little bit. All of the guys at Great Clips and Braun Racing did a great job. I appreciate it. I got a few of my crew members back this week and it's paid dividends. These guys work great as a group and I'm just proud to be driving this thing."
