Jason Leffler returns to the west coast searching for win at home

JASON LEFFLER QUICK FACTS

* A Happy Return to the West Coast: A Long Beach-native, Jason Leffler will return to the west coast for racing at his home track Auto Club Speedway for Saturday's NASCAR Nationwide Series race.

* Auto Club Speedway Highlights...

In eleven (11) career NASCAR Nationwide Series starts at Auto Club Speedway, Leffler has one pole (2004) and two top-10 finishes to his credit. His best performance at his hometown track came in 2005 in his first year with Braun Racing, when he started and finished seventh.

In his only Camping World Truck Series start at Auto Club Speedway, Leffler finished second after starting eighth.

* Braun Racing has moved! The new shop is located at 112 Byers Creek Rd., Mooresville, NC 28117.

LEFFLER ON RETURNING HOME TO THE WEST COAST

"I always look forward to the chance to get back to the west coast. With the hectic schedule we have all year I don't get to see my family and friends out here as often as I would like. The two weekends we have racing out here each year gives me a chance to catch up with everybody. To win at this track would be a huge deal for me. Of course, you want to win every race, but you especially want that win in front of the home crowd with your family and friends cheering you on."

LEFFLER ON RACING AT AUTO CLUB SPEEDWAY

"This is a really fun race track. It's wide-open pretty much all the way around and has multiple grooves so there is a lot of two and three-wide racing. You carry a lot of speed down the straight-aways and with the sweeping corners you can run around the bottom or you can run up high. You're always searching for that groove where your car is the fastest."
