Hillman Racing today announced that Jason Leffler will finish out the season behind the wheel of the No. 27 Hillman Racing entry with this weekend’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway.  Leffler, a 14-year NASCAR veteran that spent the early part of the 2012 season in a Kyle Busch Motorsports truck, will pilot the No. 27 www.LittleJoesAutos.comChevrolet Silverado in Friday night’s Ford 200. Leffler, who has competed in all three major NASCAR touring series with one Camping World Truck Series and two Nationwide Series victories to his credit, enters the weekend event with 55 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series starts, in addition to 294 NASCAR Nationwide Series and 72 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series starts.  The 37-year-old Long Beach, California, native will make his 10th truck series start of the season on Friday, and in his previous nine starts, Leffler has recorded six top-10 finishes, including a season’s-best fourth-place finish at Charlotte Motor Speedway.  Rookie Travis Miller, who has three truck series starts for Hillman Racing this year, will pilot a recently updated Hillman Racing No. 25 Chevrolet this weekend as well.  The 24-year-old Chesapeake, Va., resident posted a season’s-best 24th-place finish at Kentucky in September and looks to build his intermediate track résumé with a strong performance in the 2012 series finale. “With the addition of Jason Leffler for this weekend’s season finale in Homestead, we’re looking to build on the positive results and momentum from the past few weeks with Ryan Truex,” said team owner Mike Hillman, Sr.  “I know Jason Overstreet (crew chief) is looking forward to working with Jason (Leffler) again from their days at Ultra Motorsports, and his experience will undoubtedly be a benefit for the second truck with Travis Miller as he continues his development.” The Ford 200 from Homestead-Miami Speedway will be broadcast live on SPEED, MRN Radio and Sirius-XM NASCAR Radio, channel 90, on Friday night.  SPEED and MRN Radio will both begin live broadcasts at 7:30 p.m. EST on Friday, November 16.  SPEED will also broadcast qualifying live on Friday at 4:30 p.m. EST.    Hillman Racing PR
