Jason Leffler will make his second start in the NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) for 2012, both starts coming with Turner Motorsports. The NNS veteran also has numerous starts under his belt at the 1-mile desert tri-oval including a pair of second-place finishes (2000 and 2009). Leffler is looking to score F.O.E. their third overall NASCAR win of the 2012 season. Welcome Back… Turner Motorsports partner Fraternal Order of Eagles returns to the No. 30 Chevrolet Impala this weekend in Phoenix. F.O.E celebrated in victory lane with Buescher at Daytona International Speedway during the first race this season. As a follow up, F.O.E. got a second victory with Buescher in Kentucky, this time in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS). The Fraternal Order of Eagles is an international non-profit organization, which unites fraternally in the spirit of liberty, truth, justice, and equality, to make human life more desirable by lessening its ills, and by promoting peace, prosperity, gladness and hope. The F.O.E. was founded in 1898 by six theatre owners gathered in a Seattle shipyard to discuss a musician’s strike. After addressing the matter, they agreed to “bury the hatchet” and form “The Order of Good Things.” As numbers grew, members changed the name to “The Fraternal Order of Eagles.” Presently F.O.E. membership is almost one million strong, with more than 1,700 local aeries in the U.S. and Canada. Women’s auxiliaries total more than 1,500, with more than 335,000 members. Among its many accomplishments the F.O.E. counts the founding of Mother’s Day and esteemed members include seven former U.S. Presidents. This Week’s Impala…The No. 30 Fraternal Order of Eagles Chevrolet Impala team will unload a chassis TMS-319. The two previous starts with this chassis have been a 10th (Kasey Kahne) and 11th (James Buescher) respectively, both coming at Richmond International Raceway. Last Race Recap…With NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) star, Ryan Newman the wheel the team went into the weekend with high hopes of a solid run. That was looking like a reality after running in or close to the top-10 most of the evening. It was just after the half-way point of the event when the first of two right front tire’s failed relinquishing Newman to a 19th-place finish. Look Your Best at PIR… When the gates open for the weekend at Phoenix International Raceway, Great Clips stylists will have their scissors in hand  and will be offering free haircuts to race attendees. Just stop by the Great Clips display! Donations will be accepted with all money raised going to Project H3. Project H3 was established to provide aid for long-term, vulnerable homeless veterans and their families. For more information see their website: http://www.azceh.org/project-h3 Watch It LIVE…The Great Clips 200 can be seen live on Saturday, November 10th on ESPN. Race coverage will begin at 3:30 p.m. EST. The event can also be heard live on Sirius Satellite Radio, channel 90. Leffler on returning to Phoenix International Raceway: “I’m really excited that I get to work with Turner Motorsports and the whole No. 30 Fraternal Order of Eagles team again this weekend!  I’m itching to get back behind the wheel, especially at a place where I’ve logged so many laps. I like the style of the new PIR, so I feel like we have a good shot to have a solid finish for F.O.E. and the Turner Motorsports team.”
