LEFFLER ON BRISTOL MOTOR SPEEDWAY

"Bristol is a place you either love or hate as a driver. There isn't much gray area on the subject. You CAN grow to love it though. When I first started racing in the Nationwide Series, I hated going to Bristol because I just struggled to keep up. Over the last few years, I have finally figured the place out. It's challenging and I like that! It's top on my list of tracks I would love to get a win at and we have been pretty close on a couple of occasions. Hopefully, we can get it done this weekend and take the Great Clips Camry back to victory lane."

LEFFLER ON FIRST RACE AT BRISTOL WITH DOUBLE-FILE RESTARTS

"This will be the first race at Bristol where we will have double-file restarts. I think everyone has different opinions on the issue, but I have been a big proponent of the double-file restarts from the very beginning. I think it's going to add a lot of excitement to what is already one of the best races on the circuit. It's a lot of fun and really spices things up, especially if you're running fifth and sixth on back. Before, if you weren't running in the top-three there at the end, you didn't have much of a shot. This new rule changes that, and allows more guys the chance to fight for the win in the closing laps. I think the fans are going to love it."
