Tony and Jason

Thu Jun 13, 2013 1:03 pm

Jason Leffler was one of Tony's proteges and good friends. In fact, he was one of Tony's roommates in Indiana when the time came for Tony to relocate pretty much full-time to North Carolina for his stock car career. In Tony's book there are a couple really good stories about Jason, one about how they would tearass around in Tony's backyard up to midnight on dirt bikes and four-wheelers and how they dueled for a win in the 1999 Turkey Night Grand Prix (Jason won). Jason has a couple personal anecdotes talking about living with Tony, as well.

Those memories Tony has of Jason will be very important. It is so sad to lose anyone. Jason is so young that it's hard to handle. The best to his family.

I didn't realize that these two were this close; but I do remember Tony sometimes referred to Jason as "Mini-Me." Tragic loss for family and friends...

Charlie Dean Leffler Trust Fund established. From what I've read, Jason did NOT have any life insurance.
