Jason Leffler hopes to leave Homestead-Maimi Speedway seventh in points

* Leffler back behind the wheel of the No. 10 ABF Toyota Camry... In the 2010 season-finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway (HMS) this weekend, Leffler will pilot Turner Motorsports' No. 10 entry. During the 2010 season, Leffler has spent time behind the wheel of the No. 10 for eight races and the No. 38 for the balance of the full NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) schedule.

* Leffler looking to finish the seventh in the driver championship point standings.... Going into the NNS race last weekend at Phoenix, Leffler was sitting eighth in the driver point standings and had the potential to take over seventh. Unfortunately, an engine failure cut his day short and, as a result, he dropped two spots in the standings to 10th. With a strong finish this weekend at HMS, Leffler could potentially work his way back up to finish the year in the seventh-place, of which he is currently 80 points behind.

* Leffler and Turner Motorsports teammate, Reed Sorenson, to participate in the NASCAR Championship Drive! Leffler and Sorenson will participate in driver Q&A and sign autographs for fans on Thursday, November 18 from 12:30-2:00 p.m. ET. The two-day fan festival will take place in Miami's South Beach. Included in the festivities will be a grand-arrival parade of NASCAR race team "haulers" convoying on Miami Beach to kick off the free two-day fan fest and concert. Scheduled to begin at 7:00 p.m. on Miami Beach at Lummus Park (between 7th and 9th Streets), is the award winning Zac Brown Band.

Leffler on the 2010 racing season

"Well, this has definitely been a rocky season. It's been so frustrating because so many things have happened out of our control. Mechanical failures have really been an issue for us this year and that's hard to take when everyone works so hard throughout the week and the weekend to get these cars ready to race. I just can't thank our sponsors, especially Great Clips and ABF Freight, enough for sticking with us through thick and thin. They have been such a great supporters of us over the years and I am so proud to represent them both on and off the track for the last five years.

Looking ahead, I can honestly say I only see great things for Turner Motorsports. Steve Turner is a racer at heart and is doing everything that needs to be done to ensure that we will come out of the box in Daytona, battling for wins each and every week. We have already turned our focus to 2011, have re-established our goals and are starting to work towards achieving those goals. When we hit the track in 2011, we will be ready to contend for the championship."

Equipment Information

The No. 10 ABF team will unload chassis #023 in this weekend's Ford 300. Leffler has driven this car to a total of four top-10 finishes including races at Kansas Speedway (10th), Chicagoland Speedway (5th), Atlanta Motor Speedway (7th) and Texas Motor Speedway (6th)..
