Jason Leffler

Quotes from the frontstretch.com

Who knows why, but all of a sudden we’re starting to see drivers passing away again. Dan Wheldon is killed in the IndyCar season finale in 2011. Tyler Morr dies after a crash at Auburndale in May 2012. Jeff Osborn lost his life in May 2012 as well. Tyler Wolf passes away at Calistoga in October 2012.

Jason Leffler was a racer. He’d race a Cup car or a motorized scooter. Like any driver, he had an ego, but he was also one of the nicest guys you could meet in the garage. He wore his hair the same way for years because his sponsor Great Clips wanted him to. He had some good rides and he had some crappy rides. He took what he could get because he loved to race. He only had three wins in the national touring series of NASCAR but he always ran like a sprint car driver, wide open and on the edge.

Jason Leffler is a sad reminder that racing will always be dangerous despite our best efforts. See the fans that were injured this year at Daytona and Charlotte.

Leffler can also serve as a reminder to be the best person you can be right now, because you don’t always get to chose your legacy.
