This weekend at Richmond International Raceway (RIR), Leffler will return to the seat of the No. 38 machine. Leffler is splitting his time this season, piloting Braun Racing's No. 10 Camry (eight races) and No. 38 Camry (27 races), to compete for the 2010 driver championship. Following this weekend's race at RIR, Leffler will pilot the No. 10 for the next three races at Darlington Raceway, Dover International Speedway and Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Leffler on racing at Richmond International Raceway

"The configuration of Richmond is awesome because it's got a short track feel but it has enough speed that it has speedway characteristics. You have to keep the fenders on the car in order to get a good finish because the cars are a little bit more aero- sensitive, even at a short track like Richmond. There are always two grooves of racing so there's a lot of side-by-side beating and banging which is fun as a driver and exciting for the fans. I'm ready to get back to some short track racing, especially after the weekend we had at Talladega. These types of tracks have always been our strong suit so we are expecting a good, solid run on Friday night."

Equipment Information

The No. 38 Great Clips team will hit the track with chassis #BR017 in this weekend's BUBBA Burger 250. This is the same chassis Leffler drove to the win at O'Reilly Raceway Park in 2007 to capture the NNS first victory for Toyota. Leffler drove this chassis in almost every short track race last season, finishing in the top-10 six times.
