LEFFLER ON ATLANTA MOTOR SPEEDWAY:

"I always look forward to racing at Atlanta. The track is fast, wide and there are multiple grooves for racing. It's a fun track for the drivers because we can really race against each other often two and three-wide. As a driver, it's nice because if your car isn't working in one place on the track you can move around and find a line that might be a little better. Atlanta Motor Speedway provides some of the best racing of the season and that has been proven over and over by some of the exciting finishes we seen there over the years. The Great Clips team has had a rough start to the 2007 season, but as a whole, Braun Racing has produced some great runs at Atlanta so this is a great chance for us to get things moving back in a positive direction. It's still early in the season and we can recover from our recent stint of bad luck, hopefully starting with this weekend at Atlanta."

EQUIPMENT INFORMATION:

The Great Clips team is debuting a new chassis, #25, in this weekend's Nicorette 300 at Atlanta Motor Speedway.
