GREAT CLIPS TEAM LOOKING FOR SOLID PERFORMANCE AT LOWE'S TO IGNITE HOT STREAK AS SUMMER APPROACHES

* Leffler has a total of 11 NASCAR starts at Lowe's Motor Speedway with (7) Busch Series starts, (3) Nextel Cup Series starts and (1) Craftsman Truck Series start.

* In seven NBS starts at Lowe's Motor Speedway, Leffler has one-top five and two top-10 finishes. His best performance at the track came in 2004 when he started from the ninth spot and finished fourth.

* In need of a haircut? Great Clips stylists from the Charlotte area will be performing free haircuts this Thursday and Saturday at Lowe's Motor Speedway in the driver/ owner motor home lot with donations benefiting Motor Racing Outreach.

LEFFLER ON LOWE'S MOTOR SPEEDWAY

"The Great Clips team wrapped up a test session at Lowe's last week and we feel like we learned a lot about how our car will handle on long runs and what adjustments will be beneficial throughout the race. We feel like we'll be in good shape when we go back for the race this weekend. It was great to have a weekend off but I think we're all ready to get back at it and hopefully continue the momentum that we gained from Darlington. It's been a bumpy season so far but a good run this weekend at Lowe's would get our summer off to a new and better start."

EQUIPMENT INFORMATION:

The Great Clips team will unload chassis # 23 for this weekend's event. Leffler drove #23 to a 6th place finish two weeks ago in Darlington and to a season-high fourth place finish last month at Nashville Superspeedway. Last season, #23 ran at Michigan (13th), California (24th) and Kansas (31st -- accident).

APPEARANCES

Leffler will sign autographs and meet fans at the Great Clips showcar display in downtown Charlotte at Speed Street on Friday, May 25th, from noon-1pm.
