LEFFLER ON NASHVILLE SUPERSPEEDWAY

"My first Nationwide Series win came at Nashville Superspeedway so I have a lot of good memories there. We had a fast car when we raced here in April but we didn't qualify as well as well as we needed to. We were coming up through the field pretty fast, but we got some fender damage along the way that hurt our chances to be a contender for the win. We've made some minor changes to the car since then that I think are going to help us this time around. We should be pretty strong right out of the box and hopefully will only have to make minimal adjustments to the Great Clips Toyota during practice to make it perfect."
