* Leffler back in the seat of the No. 38 Great Clips Camry... This weekend, in the Nationwide Series' second stop at Daytona International Speedway (DIS), Leffler will return to the seat of the No. 38 machine. He will remain in the No. 38 for the remainder of the season with the exception of events at Bristol Motor Speedway, Atlanta Motor Speedway and Homestead-Miami Speedway where he will pilot the team's No. 10 entry.

* Seeing Double? You may think you're seeing double this weekend when two Great Clips Camrys take to the track for Friday night's Nationwide Series race under the lights of the famed Daytona International Speedway. In addition to the black No. 38 Great Clips Camry driven by Jason Leffler, Braun Racing's No.11 entry, driven by Brian Scott, will feature a matching Great Clips paint scheme.

* Who's on the pit box...Veteran crew chief, Eddie Pardue, will call the shots for Leffler and the No. 38 team this weekend at Daytona. Pardue has spent the last ten years at Roush Racing where he moved quickly through the ranks and served as a crew chief since 2006 for the team's Nationwide Series program.

Leffler on the debut of the "new car" this weekend at Daytona

"I don't really know what to expect this weekend with the new car but I'm still excited about it. I had fun during the test. We were worried about falling behind some of the Cup-affiliated teams but I think that the playing field is pretty level, which is going to be a help to us. It's bigger car all the way around. It reminds me a lot of driving a truck in the Camping World Series. As far as handling, the new cars are a little freer so we will have to adjust to that. Going into this weekend, there is not much you can do to be prepared but just make sure your car is put together right and go from there. Having that test day on Wednesday is really important and will allow us more time to adjust to these cars and give us a better idea of what to expect on Friday night. The Nationwide Series is a great series with competitive racing week in and week out. I think the transition to this new car is only going to make it that much better."

Equipment Information

The No. 38 Great Clips team will hit the track with chassis #BR100 in this weekend's SUBWAY Jalapeno 250 powered by Coca-Cola. This is same chassis the team ran during the Daytona test in May.
