JASON LEFFLER , No. 38 Great Clips Toyota Camry, Braun Racing Finished: 2nd

How was your race tonight?

"I'm really proud of everybody at Braun Racing and Toyota -- they've done a great job. We're really coming to the top and the hard work showed tonight. We really had a great car. We were pretty worried about the No. 99 (Reutimann) because he was on fresher tires there when we hadn't pitted for a while and he was coming. That's why we pitted when we did to get fresh tires because we really felt that was the only way we could run with him. We could get wound up there on the bottom, but Kasey (Kahne) did a great job controlling the race from the high groove. I tried to slide in on him on that last lap and that's why I checked up and that's when David (Reutimann) got into the back of me. But that was really not a big deal."

What happened between yourself and David Reutimann coming to the checkered flag?

"It's a good thing that he didn't wreck this race car there at the end. But I just checked up there and he got into me -- it was no big deal. I don't know how long he's going to talk about ORP (O'Reilly Raceway Park) -- I didn't spin him out there, that's just bullring short track racing out there."
