Jason Leffler to replace David Green in No. 1 Toyota in Truck series competition

Busch Series regular Jason Leffler will return to the Craftsman Truck Series starting next weekend at Talladega, Ala., replacing David Green in Red Horse Racing’s No. 1 Toyota in five of the final six races.

Leffler will miss the Oct. 27 race at Atlanta because of a conflict with his Busch schedule. Brandon Whitt will drive the No. 1 in that race.

In 40 career Trucks starts, Leffler has one win, 16 top-five and 25 top-10 finishes. He last raced in the series in 2004.
