Leffler on Racing at Nashville Superspeedway
"I always enjoy going back to Nashville. I have great memories of the place, having got my first Nationwide Series win there back in 2004. It's funny though, I have definitely had my fair share of highs and lows at Nashville - winning in 2004 and going back the next time and suffering an engine failure. It seems like I either finish really good there or have some sort of mechanical failure. I don't see that being a problem this time around, not with the equipment this Turner Motorsports team provides. We just need to capitalize on our previous success at this track by qualifying up front, running a smooth race and being there at the end to contend for the win. I already have one customized Gibson guitar trophy but I would love another one to add to the collection for my son, Charlie! There is a lot to be said for momentum in this sport and we are definitely riding a strong wave of it right now."
