* Leffler's New Hampshire Motor Speedway Highlights

In six Nationwide Series starts at New Hampshire, Leffler has one top-five, one top-10 and three top-15 finishes. His best performance at The Magic Mile came in 2004, when he started and finished third.

* Leffler Currently Sitting Fourth in the Championship Point Standings

Leffler captured his 12th top-10 of the season with his tenth-place finish last weekend at The Milwaukee Mile. He is currently 46-points behind third place, Brad Keselowski, 137 points behind Carl Edwards and 264 points behind leader, Kyle Busch.

* Home Sweet Home for "Trucker Matt"

This weekend marks a rare return trip home for Matt Weaver, transport driver for the No. 38 Great Clips team. A native of Keene, NH, Weaver looks forward to spending the weekend with family and friends and to bragging about his four month-old son, Logan.

LEFFLER ON NEW HAMPSHIRE INTERNATIONAL SPEEDWAY

"New Hampshire isn't characterized as a short track, but it definitely has the characteristics of one. Passing is tough and you have to be aggressive. You really have to work on getting your car up off the corner without getting loose on exit. We are taking the same car we raced last weekend in Milwaukee, which is our go-to car for this type of race track. The Great Clips team feels confident that we will be a strong contender on Saturday."

LEFFLER REMEMBERING MAMA B. THIS WEEKEND

"Everyone at Braun Racing heads into this weekend remembering a very special lady -- Mama B. (Mother of team owner, Todd Braun, who passed away one year ago). We have all missed her presence at the race track but we know she is with us in spirit and enjoying the way that this race team, that she loved so much, is performing this year. It has been a tough week for Todd and his family, so our thoughts are with them. To win at this track on this weekend would be a great way to honor to Mama B."

Chassis # BR017 last seen on the track at Milwaukee -- started 8th/ finished 10th. Chassis #17 is one of Leffler's favorites in the Braun Racing stable. This is the same chassis he drove to Victory Lane at ORP in 2007.
