Jason Leffler looks to return to his winning ways at Phoenix

* Leffler a solid contender at Phoenix International Raceway (PIR)... In 12 Nationwide Series starts at the Avondale, Ariz. track, Leffler has claimed two poles (2000 and 2006), two top-five (2nd in 2000 and 2009) and four top-ten finishes. He has finished outside the top-20 on only two occasions and has led for 121 laps.

Leffler on racing at Phoenix International Raceway

"Phoenix is pretty much my favorite track on the NASCAR circuit. I spent a lot of time out there as a kid and ran the Copper Classic for a number of years. It's a slick, old race track and unique in that both ends are so different and the surface is so worn out. You slide around a lot but really like having to drive that way. The Great Clips team is having s strong run here at the end, after what has been a really up and down season. Still, ending the year strong can give you a lot of momentum going into the next season. With everything we have going on at Turner Motorsports, we all have a lot to be excited about! We would love nothing more than to end the season with a win! We are going to have a big contingency of Great Clips franchisees with us for the race on Saturday and we would love for them to be able to experience a celebration in victory lane with us."

Equipment Information

The No. 38 Great Clips team will hit the track with chassis #017 in this weekend's WYPALL 200. Leffler drove this chassis in races at Gateway (July) and O'Reilly Raceway Park this year, finishing 23rd and 30th, respectively. Leffler drove chassis #017 to the win at ORP in 2007 to give Toyota its first-ever NNS victory
