LEFFLER LOOKING FORWARD TO RETURNING TO MARTINSVILLE

Leffler has two career NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series (NCTS) starts at Martinsville Speedway. His best NCTS performance at the track came in 2002 when he started from the outside pole and finished sixth.

Leffler has three career Nextel Cup Series starts at Martinsville with a best finish of 12th in 2005.

Leffler currently sits 11th in the NASCAR Busch Series point standings, 65 points out of tenth place, after 20 of 35 races.

LEFFLER ON THE RETURN OF THE BUSCH SERIES TO MARTINSVILLE SPEEDWAY:

"I am excited that the NASCAR Busch Series is returning to Martinsville Speedway. These are some of the best fans on the circuit so it will be a lot of fun to get out there and put on a good show for them. I think they are definitely going to get their money's worth. Not only do I think it will be a great race for them but it's also going to be interesting to watch from the driver's seat. With so many drivers having little or no experience here I expect that it's going to be pretty exciting."

LEFFLER ON THE KEYS TO SUCCESS AT MARTINSVILLE:

"Martinsville is your typical short track where track position is everything. The keys to success are the same as Bristol -- qualify up front, stay out of trouble and take care of your equipment. If you can do those things you're almost guaranteed to have a solid finish. The brakes are also vital component for Martinsville. Because the corners are so tight, you use a good amount of brake entering the corner. If you overdrive the car early on, you'll have nothing left for the closing laps when it counts."
