LEFFLER LOOKS TO CAPITALIZE ON PREVIOUS SUCCESS AT "THE MONSTER MILE"

* Leffler is no stranger to "The Monster Mile's" Victory Lane. In 2003, Leffler took the checkered flag in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race at Dover, scoring his first NASCAR win.

* In five NBS starts at Dover International Speedway, Leffler has two top five and three top-10 finishes. In last fall's event at Dover, Leffler posted his best finish at the track with a 3rd place finish after starting 12th.

* Leffler currently sits ninth in the NASCAR Busch Series point standings, second among the NASCAR Busch Series regulars in the top-10.

LEFFLER ON DOVER INTERNATIONAL SPEEDWAY

"This weekend's race at Dover is one I have had circled in red on my calendar. It's one of my favorite tracks on the circuit and one where I have found a good amount of success. I got my first truck series win here back in 2003 and was a contender for the win in my last two Busch races finishing 3rd last fall and 4th in 2004.

Dover is kind of like a Bristol on steroids, but it's really fast and smooth. In fact, sometimes it's easy to forget that it's only a one mile-track. You need to get the car working coming off the corners so you can keep your momentum up on the straightaways. It's a fun track to drive because there is more than one groove meaning you can pass a lot easier than at some of the others places we go to."

EQUIPMENT INFORMATION: The No. 38 Great Clips team will compete with chassis #006 in this weekend's StonebridgeRacing.com 200. This is the same chassis Leffler drove in last fall's event at Dover when he posted a 3rd place finish.
