Leffler Ready to Take on the World's Fastest Half Mile

Jason Leffler is anxious for a top finish in this weekend's Food City 250 at Bristol Motor Speedway. Despite a number of strong runs at Bristol, Leffler has faced some disappointments at the half-mile concrete oval over the last few years.

"I have had some tough luck at Bristol but I can't help but be optimistic," said Leffler. "Racing at Bristol is like nothing else we do all season as it is incredibly challenging both physically and mentally. There is absolutely no time to relax during the race because you are surrounded by other competitors the entire time, and the speeds are extremely fast for a half-mile track due to the steep banking in the corners. Everyone is beating and banging on each other, patience is a virtue out there."

Leffler has eight starts at Bristol Motor Speedway in Nextel Cup Series, Busch Series and Craftsman Truck Series races. Leffler has three starts at the track in Busch competition, posting his best finish of 17th in the 2004 Sharpie Professional 250. He turned in his best Bristol result at the 2003 truck event where he started 17th and finished ninth.

"I am confident we will have a fast WINFUEL Chevy this weekend, it's the same car the team ran earlier this year and finished 12th" said Leffler. "Things happen quickly at Bristol and if we stay out of trouble we will have a good run."

Jason Leffler will be making his 6th start behind the wheel of the #32 WINFUEL Chevrolet this weekend. Leffler and the Braun Racing team hope to use the information that they have learned while working together these past few races to improve upon Leffler's 2005 Cup finish at Bristol.

Watch all of the heart stopping action at the "The World's Fastest Half-Mile" as Jason Leffler and the WINFUEL team try to take #32 to victory lane for the first time this year. NASCAR Busch series race coverage starts live on TNT this Friday at 7:30 p.m. and will broadcast nationally at that same time on radio stations affiliated with Performance Racing Network (PRN) and XM Satellite Radio
