JASON LEFFLER, No. 38 Great Clips Toyota Camry, Braun Racing
Finishing Position: 2nd

Did that last yellow flag hurt your chances for a victory tonight?

"We didn't take tires and all those guys behind us did. We took off there for a couple of laps. It was a great call by Scott Zipadelli (crew chief). The guys are doing a great job. If we keep running like this we're going to win some races. It wasn't quite as good as I thought it was going to be before the race, but it turned out really good for us. I'm proud of everybody and glad to have Great Clips on board -- we appreciate all their support as well as Toyota. Todd Braun and the whole Braun family at Braun Racing has done a great job over the winter and the results are showing."

Were those yellow flags your friend or foe at the end of the race?

"They were definitely our friend there. It just worked out that we didn't take tires. Track position was just so important. If we had any sort of run there, those guys behind us were coming. It worked out really good in our favor. I'm proud of all of the guys and really happy to be driving this car. If we keep running like this we're going to win some races."
