RIP Jason Leffler

Recommended Posts

NASCAR Nationwide & Sprint Cup driver Jason Leffler was racing Sprint Cars in Bridgeport NJ for the "Night of Wings" when his car had a malfunction and flipped across the front stretch coming out of turn 4 of qualifying

The race was stopped immediately and fans prayed waiting for news as he was airlifted to the hospital 

It was at 9:02pm EST that newly Sprint Cup driver Jason Leffler had died from injuries from the wreck.

The race was canceled

NJ State Police say the cause of the wreck was a malfunction, further investigation continues

 

I have had the privilage to see him race once, in the Unsponsored #62 for World of Outlaws at my home track Tulare Thunderbowl, he was a great racer and Nationwide series winner

Rest in peace Jason

September 16th, 1975 - June 12th, 2013

Blunt force neck injury...let's not discuss possible safety equipment issues here, that should be done in a new thread.
