No. 30 Great Clips / AccuDoc Solutions Chevrolet News and Notes

 

 

Welcome back Jason Leffler... Jason Leffler returns to his previous home of Turner Motorsports to drive the No. 30 Chevrolet this weekend at Iowa Speedway. Saturday night's event will mark his first NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) start of the 2012 season. Turner Motorsports marketing partners, AccuDoc Solutions and Great Clips, have partnered for this race as co-sponsors in support of Leffler, who has represented them so well over the years.  

 

Leffler at Iowa Speedway, by the numbers... Based on Leffler's stats at the 7/8-mile track, it makes perfect sense that Turner Motorsports would tap him to pilot their No. 30 entry this weekend. In four starts, the Long Beach-native has two third-place finishes and just one finish outside of the top-15. He has an average start of 8.8 and an average finish of 13.0.

 

"It's Gonna be Great" for Leffler... Not only will this be a homecoming of sorts for Leffler, but he will also reunite with long-time sponsor, Great Clips. The Great Clips logo will adorn the hood and decklid of the No. 30 Chevrolet, which will also feature the AccuDoc Solutions logo on the quarter panels. Leffler drove the No. 38 Great Clips machine for six years for Braun Racing and then Turner Motorsports (2006-2011).

 

No. 30 Season-To-Date Stats... The No. 30 team, led by crew chief Trent Owens, has had an impressive season so far. A victory in the season-opener at Daytona International Speedway with driver James Buescher was followed with a second victory in June at Road America with Nelson Piquet Jr. On top of the two wins, the team has three top-fives and nine top-10 finishes.

 

This Week's Impala... The No. 30 team will unload chassis TMS-323 this weekend at Iowa Speedway. This chassis has seen track time at New Hampshire Motor Speedway where Jamie McMurray finished 9th, as well as Auto Club Speedway and Darlington Raceway where James Buescher finished 12th and ninth, respectively.

 

Leffler on racing at Iowa Speedway this weekend

"I really can't say enough how excited I am to drive the No. 30 car for Turner Motorsports this weekend! This team was home to me for seven years, so to have the chance to get back together with these guys and go racing is awesome! I like the Iowa track a lot and always seem to run pretty well there. My goal this weekend is pretty simple - I'm planning to go out there and win. That's really all there is to it. Great Clips has been a huge part of my career over the years and Harry Scott (No. 30 team owner) has been a big support for me, so if I could go out there and get the win for them, it would mean a lot."
