LEFFLER ON RACING AT O'REILLY RACEWAY PARK:

"Indy is like a second home for me so I'm looking forward to the opportunity to see friends and family this weekend. ORP is a track where I have seen more success in my career than at any other. I've been fortunate to visit victory lane there on several occasions in my USAC racing days and while I have come really close to scoring a win in both the Truck and Busch Series in the last few years, I still haven't brought home the trophy. We're hoping to change that this weekend. I feel that my experience at this track coupled with the strength of our short-track program this season we should have a really good shot."
