LEFFLER ON LOWE'S MOTOR SPEEDWAY

"Winning here at Charlotte would be a really big deal. We all consider Lowe's Motor Speedway to be our hometown track even though most of us are not from here this is a place we have all made our home now. This is always a great race! The field is stacked with a lot of Sprint Cup drivers, so you are racing against the best of the best when you race here at Lowe's Motor Speedway. Humpy Wheeler always puts on a very entertaining show here for the fans so there is a lot of excitement in the air, not just for the fans but for the drivers as well!

"We wrapped up a test session at Lowe's last week and despite a couple of bumps in the road, we feel like we learned a lot about how our car will handle on long runs and what adjustments will be beneficial throughout the race. We feel like we'll be in good shape this weekend. It was nice to have a weekend off but I think we're all ready to get back at it."
