QUOTES
Jason Leffler, driver, No. 01 Cingular Wireless Dodge Intrepid R/T:

“ I like Homestead Speedway a lot. I’ve only competed there once, in the Busch Series race last year, but we ran pretty good. We had a good qualifying position and we ran up front most of the race. It takes a lot of patience to race there.”

“ We tested at Homestead a couple of weeks ago. The test went ok. We have a good starting point for this weekend.”

“ The Pontiacs run real good there but I think Tony Stewart is the reason behind that.”
