LEFFLER ON THE MILWAUKEE MILE:
"The Milwaukee Mile is so rich in racing history, with races dating back to 1903. To go to a place where so many of racing's greatest drivers have their names in the record books is pretty special."
"I have four starts at Milwaukee, two in the trucks where I finished second both times, and two in the Busch cars, where I finished 15th both times. Milwaukee is flat with long sweeping corners so one of the biggest keys here is to be able to cut down to the bottom through the corners, even towards the end of the run. This is a place where you have to be aggressive and you have to muscle your way to the front. If you hesitate for a second, you're going to go backwards."
The No. 38 Great Clips team will compete with chassis #17 in this weekend's AT&T 250. #17 is the same car that Leffler drove in Phoenix and Richmond, capturing the Busch pole for both events. Leffler led for 76 laps in Phoenix and 66 laps in Richmond. On-track altercations took him out of contention in both events.
