MOORESVILLE, N.C., June 28, 2010—You may think you’re seeing double this weekend when two Great Clips Camrys take to the track for Friday night’s Nationwide Series race under the lights of the famed Daytona International Speedway. In addition to the black No. 38 Great Clips Toyota driven by Jason Leffler each weekend, Braun Racing’s No.11 entry, driven by Brian Scott, will feature a matching Great Clips paint scheme.
Leffler, who has driven the No. 38 Great Clips Camry for the last five seasons, is currently 11th in the 2010 Nationwide Series driver championship point standings has proven to be a strong contender at Daytona International Speedway. In 13 NASCAR Nationwide Series starts at Daytona, Leffler has logged four top-10 finishes, finishing outside the top-20 on just four occasions. His best performance occurred in the 2006 season-opener when he posted a sixth place finish after starting 24th. He has completed 1405 of the 1456 possible laps.
Scott, who joined Braun Racing just this season to pilot the No. 11 Toyota, is currently leading the standings for the Rookie of the Year title. In 16 starts this season, the Boise, Idaho-native has posted three top-10 finishes and completed a rookie class leading 93.6% laps. In only one Nationwide Series start at Daytona, Scott scored a 19th-place finish after starting 37th. Scott’s best Daytona performance was in the 2008 Camping World Truck event where he posted a ninthplace finish after starting 18th.
Braun Racing owner, Todd Braun, along with Doug Stringer, look forward to seeing both Toyota Camrys adorned with the Great Clips logo this weekend. “It’s going to be a lot of fun to have two Great Clips cars on the race track,” said Braun. “With this being one of the biggest races of the year, I know it’s something that all of the Great Clips franchisees and employees are really excited about. Between the two cars, Great Clips will have a large presence throughout the weekend and as one of our longest running sponsors here at Braun Racing, we are more than happy to give them that opportunity.”
