LEFFLER ON TEXAS MOTOR SPEEDWAY

"Texas is an awesome track - fast and slick with a wide racing surface. The older the track gets the slicker it gets and the wider the groove gets in the race allowing you to run pretty much wherever you want to. It's a lot of fun to race there, especially when you get up there right against the fence. Turn two is the trouble spot there. The banking holds you really good and then at last second the banking falls off so if you aren't careful you can get caught out there and pick up a bad push at the very end or if you're pushing before that it can snap you loose. It definitely has its own unique characteristics but it a great track and the racing is always really good there."

EQUIPMENT INFORMATION
