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

How was your race? "We had a really good race car tonight. Our Great Clips Camry was a top six or seven car -- it was really fast on the long runs. I tell you Scott Zipadelli (crew chief) made a great call there at the end to get the Great Clips Camry up front. Just running through these first couple corners with clean air on it was such a big advantage. It jumped us from sixth to fourth there, it was such a great call. The guys are doing a great job for me there. We have to keep it rolling -- one day things are going to fall into place here, we're going to have a little more speed and everything is going to come our way and we're going to win one."
