Side note; sorry for being m.i.a. for a few months. lots of personal crap going on.

from jayski

Details are still spotty, but NASCAR Nationwide regular Jason Leffler has been severely injured in a wreck at Bridgeport Speedway in New Jersey. Leffler was racing a Sprint Car at the track's "Night of Wings." While the details of the wreck are still yet to emerge, Leffler apparently flipped in the track's front stretch and, according to eyewitness accounts, was extracted from the car on a board. He was airlifted out of the track via helicopter. The remainder of the night's racing was cancelled. Leffler has spent most of his decade-plus career in the Nationwide series, running full schedules from 2006 to 2011. He has two wins, 42 top fives and 107 top 10s in the Nationwide series. He's also run 73 races in Sprint Cup, most recently at Pocono last week.(Yahoo Sports)
AND NASCAR driver Jason Leffler was transported to a hospital following an accident driving a sprint car Wednesday night at Bridgeport (N.J.) Speedway. Leffler was involved in an accident while competing in a heat race in the 410 Sprints division on the 0.625-mile dirt oval. There was no immediate word on his condition, but a posting on the track's Facebook page said the remainder of the racing scheduled for Wednesday night had been postponed because of the accident.(Sporting News)
UPDATE: NASCAR driver Jason Leffler died after an accident Wednesday night at a dirt car event at Bridgeport Speedway. The 37-year-old Leffler, a two-time winner on the Nationwide Series, was pronounced dead shortly after 9:00pm/et, New Jersey State Police said..(Associated Press)(6-12-2013)

Re: Jason Leffler died

It always sucks to hear a driver dies in racing. No matter how if it is a local series to any of the TV covered series.
RIP Jason Leffler.

Man a .625 dirt track. That is a big track for dirt. Wonder what their speeds were.
