Re: Jason Leffler died

Special thoughts and prayers to the Leffler family and extra for the son Charlie. The racing world is closeknit and this news is so sad for many. Rest in peace Jason rest in peace..........

Wow, that really took me by surprise. I always liked him, he was funny and quite the individual. Thoughts and prayers to his son and family...

Just total shock and disbelief. My condolences to his young son Charlie and the entire Leffler family.
Jason will be missed.

Re: Jason Leffler died

Jason was one of the Chili Bowl regulars. He will be missed. Saw him @ Chili Bowl with Charlie Dean. The devotion to his son was obvious. Hope Charlie has all the support he will need in the days to come. God Bless.

Re: Jason Leffler died

There are several ways to contribute to a fund that will go to support Jason's son. Unfortunately Jason died with no life insurance. I know Kasey Kahne is making a hat in jus honor and all proceeds will go to his son. When he has all the details put together I will post it

Re: Jason Leffler died

I have no doubt that Charlie will be taken care of. That's the best thing about NASCAR and the motorsports community, they take care of each other.

They said on the Speed Report that he was wearing a head and neck restraint, so it must have been a very hard hit or a bad angle. So sad...

That really blows my mind that he had no life insurance. I mean, I guess it could be expensive for a NASCAR driver, or anyone who races regularly, but death doesn't happen that often in the sport.
I'd think it would be pretty high though on the list of priorities.
Just a shock and a shame.
Thanks for the heads up doc.
