LEFFLER ON THE ADVANTAGES AND DISADVANTAGES OF A RARE OFF-WEEKEND

"The rare off-weekends we have in this sport are usually very much welcomed, EXCEPT when you are coming off of a couple of races where you have struggled, whether it be through fault of our own or being a victim of someone else's mistake. For me, having to wait another two weeks to race again feels like eternity because I want to get back out there and get that momentum turned around. On the other hand, I really enjoyed the time I was able to spend last week visiting family and friends in Indianapolis. I spent some time working on my midget, which is always a lot of fun for me. Still, I'm ready to get the Great Clips Camry back on the race track this weekend in Dover."

LEFFLER ON RACING AT "THE MOSTER MILE"

"The Dover race is always an exciting one. Everyone compares it to a Bristol on steroids and that's a pretty good description for it. For a one-mile track, it's really fast. It's also pretty narrow, so there's not a whole lot of room to negotiate through the turns. Being able to charge hard into the corners so you can keep up your momentum on the straight-aways is really important. It's a place where to be fast, you have to be right on the edge with your set-up. This has been a good track to me over the years. My first NASCAR win came at Dover in 2003 when I was racing in the Truck Series, so I have good memories there but I'd certainly like to make a new memory with a win this weekend!"
