Jason Leffler Quick Facts:

Leffler finished 7th at Phoenix last year behind the wheel of the No. 32 Ft. McDowell Yavapai Pride Chevy.

Jason has competed in seven NASCAR events at Phoenix International Raceway; including three NNCS races, three NBS races and one NCTS race.

Leffler finished 35th behind the wheel of the No. 32 Great Clips Chevy at Nashville Superspeedway last week due to engine failure.

Braun Racing Quick Facts:

Ft. McDowell will serve as the primary sponsor this weekend in Phoenix, this will be the first of three races the resort destination will sponsor Jason Leffler and the No. 32 Chevy.

Chassis No. 17 will make its first appearance this season at Phoenix.

Driver Jason Leffler on Last Weekend's Race at Nashville:

"I had hoped for a better run last weekend, for the team and for Great Clips. It's tough knowing you have the equipment to run upfront and then have to cut the day short due to an engine failure. The last couple of weeks haven't been very good to us and I'm really hoping things will start to turn around in Phoenix and we can gain some spots in the points standings."

Driver Jason Leffler on Phoenix International Raceway Under the Lights:

"I like coming to Phoenix and running under the lights, I've been racing here for years. PIR is a unique one-mile track because it's considered a flat track but the banking of the corners are different on each end, and then you have the dogleg on the backstretch. The challenge is to get your car handling in both corners because there is so much room to pass. It's real important to get a good kick off turn four and ride the momentum all the way down the front straightaway."
