JASON LEFFLER

In five Nationwide Series starts at Las Vegas, Leffler has started inside the top-10 twice and has posted finishes of 28th (2000), 22nd (2004), 11th (2006) and 37th (2007).

Adding to his experience at Las Vegas, Leffler has one NASCAR Camping World Series start (2002- started 7th and finished 5th) and two Sprint Cup Series starts (best finish 22nd in 2005).

LEFFLER ON LAS VEGAS MOTOR SPEEDWAY:

"Las Vegas Motor Speedway has its own unique characteristics. It has a wide racing surface that allows you to run two and three wide. The transitions from the corner to the straight-aways and then the straight-aways to the corners are really nice. In all, it's just a really fun place to race -- probably as fun for the drivers as it is for the fans."

"This is not a track that has been particularly kind to me over the years but I am hoping we can change that this weekend. We had a great run last weekend in California despite getting caught up in an accident - even with a damaged race car we were able to finish 11th which was an accomplishment in itself. With that kind of momentum, I can't wait to get on the track in Vegas and come home with another strong finish for the Great Clips team."
