LEFFLER ON MEMPHIS MOTORSPORTS PARK

"Braun Racing's short track program has pretty much been on target all season. We've had some of our best runs this year at tracks similar to Memphis so we are looking to carry that momentum with us into this weekend. I have had a few good runs at Memphis in years past, especially in the Craftsman Truck Series, and hopefully that will be an added advantage to us this weekend as well."

EQUIPMENT INFORMATION - The Great Clips team will unload chassis # 17 for this weekend's event. This is the same chassis Leffler drove to his second career victory in July at ORP in addition to a third place finish at The Milwaukee Mile and a 12th place finish at New Hampshire. In 2006, Leffler captured two poles and led a total of 180 laps in chassis #17.
