LEFFLER ON HOMESTEAD-MIAMI SPEEDWAY

"Honestly, heading into this weekend I'm already thinking about Daytona and the 2009 season. We did not have the season we had hoped for this year so I think we are ready to put it to rest. We have already turned our focus to 2009, have re-established our goals and are starting to work towards achieving those goals -- building new race cars, hiring more personnel, etc. When we hit the track in 2009, we will be ready to contend for the championship."
