LEFFLER ON DOVER INTERNATIONAL SPEEDWAY

"Dover is a track with a mind of its own. It's similar to Bristol with the high banking but it's much faster. It's actually easy to forget that it's only a one mile-track because of the speeds you are carrying. The biggest thing there is being able to charge hard into the corners so you can keep up your momentum on the straight-aways. Getting the car to handle as you come off the corners is the key to success at Dover so we will spend a lot of our practice time working on that. This Great Clips team has had some strong runs at this race track but we just don't have the finishes to show for it. We look to change that this weekend!"

EQUIPMENT INFORMATION

The No. 38 Great Clips team will unload chassis # 23 in this weekend's Roadloans.com 200. This is the same chassis Leffler piloted in both of this season's Bristol events where he finished sixth and 15th.
