* Braun Racing acquired by Turner Motorsports... Last week, it was announced that Turner Motorsports acquired select assets of Braun Racing. The team will continue to operate as Braun Racing for the remainder of the 2010 season. Plans for Turner Motorsports in 2011 include fielding three entries in both the Camping World Truck Series and the Nationwide Series (NNS). The NNS driver lineup will be announced in October.
Terri Miller, Vice President of Marketing for Great Clips, Inc., had this to say about the acquisition by Turner Motorsports
"Over the years we have grown the Great Clips brand in partnership with a tremendous race team, Braun Racing. We are very excited as we once again see Braun Racing take our brand to the next level with Turner Motorsports."
Leffler on Kansas Speedway
"Kansas is a lot of fun because it has multiple grooves that allow for a lot of passing and three-wide racing. I have always qualified pretty well there and had some strong runs but just haven't had the finishes to show for it. We are looking to change that this weekend. I got the very first Cup pole at Kansas back in 2001 and I also have a Truck pole there. I'd really like to go for the sweep and grab the Nationwide Series pole this weekend. Our intermediate program has been solid this year so I feel pretty confident going into this weekend that we have a very good shot at being a contender for the win!"
The No. 38 Great Clips team will unload chassis #023 in this weekend's Kansas Lottery 300. Leffler piloted chassis #023 in races at Chicagoland Speedway and Atlanta Motor Speedway, finishing fifth and seventh respectively.
