JASON LEFFLER, No. 38 Great Clips Toyota Camry, Braun Racing Finished: 4th

How would you rate your race today? "We had a good car, but we had a wheel get loose late in the race. When Carl got by me, it started to get really bad and I had to let David and Dave by. It was a great day for the Great Clips Camry, and we needed this for sure. We're capable of running up front and the two races we've finished without problems we finished in the top-10, so if we keep doing that, we'll be fine."

Why the call to come down pit road just before a restart? "On one of the restarts, we had a little trouble getting by some of the lapped cars and I rubbed fenders with someone. We knew we had a good enough car to run near the front, so we wanted to make sure the fenders were straight on it when the next caution came out. The guys made great calls all day to put us in a good position."
