Leffler has a total of 11 career starts at Dover International Speedway, with six NASCAR Busch Series starts, three Nextel Cup starts and two NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series starts under his belt.

Leffler's first career NASCAR win came at Dover International Speedway when he took the checkered flag in the Craftsman Truck Series race in 2003.

LEFFLER ON HIS PREVIOUS SUCCESS AT DOVER INTERNATIONAL SPEEDWAY

"Dover is one of my favorite tracks on the circuit and one where I have found a good amount of success. I got my first truck series win here back in 2003 and had a couple of really strong top-five runs in 2004 and 2005. Even in the spring race earlier this year we were having a great run until we got caught up in someone else's mistake. If we can repeat what we did here in the spring and get a little bit of luck on our side, it should be a good weekend for the Great Clips team."

LEFFLER ON DOVER INTERNATIONAL SPEEDWAY

"Dover is a track with a mind of its own. There is good reason it's known as "The Monster Mile." It reminds you of the high banking of Bristol but it's really fast and smooth. It's easy to forget sometimes that it's only a one mile-track because of the speeds you are carrying. You have to charge hard into the corners so you can keep your momentum up on the straight-aways. Getting the car to handle coming off the corners is key."
