Jason Leffler named driver for Haas CNC Racing Team

HARRISBURG, N.C. (August 28, 2003) - Haas CNC Racing announced today Jason Leffler will be behind the wheel of the NetZero HiSpeed Pontiac for the remainder of the 2003 NASCAR Winston Cup season and continue with the team in 2004.

I'm happy to be a part of the Haas CNC Racing team," said Leffler, 27. "It's a great team and a great opportunity for me to get back to the Winston Cup Series. Gene Haas, Joe Custer and Tony Furr have worked hard to get me here and I'm looking forward to our future together. NetZero is a great sponsor and I'd like to thank everybody involved for giving me this chance."

Leffler, who was active in the Winston Cup Series in 2001 while racing for car owner Chip Ganassi, has been a fierce competitor on the NASCAR Craftsman Truck circuit for the past two seasons. In 2002, Leffler racked up eight pole positions en route to a fourth-place finish in the championship point standings. During the first 16 races of the 2003 campaign, Leffler captured his first victory, which came at Dover (Del.) International Speedway, and scored two additional poles.

"We are thrilled to have Jason Leffler become a permanent part of our team," stated Joe Custer, General Manager of Haas CNC Racing. "We think Jason is a good, young driver with a ton of potential and we look forward to a long, successful future together."

Leffler, a native of Long Beach, Calif., will make his fourth start behind the wheel of the No. 0 NetZero HiSpeed Pontiac this weekend at Darlington (S.C.) Raceway.
