JASON LEFFLER, No. 38 Great Clips Camry, Braun Racing

Do you like racing at Kansas Speedway? "Kansas is a lot of fun because it has multiple grooves that allows 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, which was pretty cool and I also have a Truck pole there. I'd really like to round things out and go for the Nationwide pole this weekend. Our intermediate program has been really strong this year and I think we have a very good shot at being a contender for the win this weekend."

MICHAEL ANNETT, No. 15 Camry, Germain Racing

Why does Germain Racing seem to excel at intermediate race tracks? "I really like the Kansas track. I have run in the ARCA car there, and Germain Racing really has a good mile-and-a-half program. It's not something that we necessarily focus on, but we seem to run well at those tracks. Their trucks have always been fast at the intermediate speedways, and it's kind of the same thing here in the Nationwide Series. I'm looking forward to running this car at Kansas."
