JASON LEFFLER, No. 38 Great Clips Toyota Camry, Braun Racing
Finishing Position: 3rd

What did you think about the number of cautions today?

"It's just the way the rules package is. The way NASCAR has our motor package and all that, it's just hard to pass because no one has any horsepower. Until they fix that it's going to be a lot of beating and banging of people running into each other. We don't have enough gear ratio or horsepower to get a pass done. You get underneath a guy and you get bound up and you're kind of just stuck alongside of him. So, really the only way to finish a pass is to drive it in harder than him and that's when you have the accidents."

What do you think of think of Iowa Speedway?

"The track was awesome. It cleaned up, it got a lot wider than I thought it would. It was racy, if they do a few tweaks to our cars we're going to put on one whale of a show, even better than it was today. It's really awesome, the atmosphere with the fans and the people that run the track, it's been a really great experience."

How was your race?

"It was another solid finish for the Great Clips Camry. We started off really bad and Scott (Zipadelli, crew chief) made a couple big, huge adjustments and it paid off for us. We got up front with some help there and it just worked out. A top- three, we're happy with that. We'll go on to Watkins Glen."

What would you think if you could tie the series record for most consecutive top-twos in a season?

"If I was in (Kyle Busch's) shoes, I'd probably be upset, really with as good as he is and as good as they run. They go out there and win races. He's right, you have one guy, all you have to do is beat one more guy so you're really close. All in all, I would take the season but I can understand where he's coming from."
