NASCAR drivers attend Leffler's funeral
CORNELIUS, N.C. (AP) The funeral service for NASCAR driver Jason Leffler drew Sprint Cup stars Tony Stewart, Kasey Kahne, Greg Biffle and Brad Keselowski among the more than 800 people who filled Grace Covenant Church on Wednesday.
The 37-year-old Leffler, known by the nickname "LEFturn," died a week ago when his sprint car crashed into a wall at a New Jersey dirt track.
The hour-long service detailed Leffler's passion for racing and his achievements on open-wheel and NASCAR tracks. Friends and colleagues, however, spent much of the funeral focusing on Leffler's evolution as a father to his 5-year-old son, Charlie Dean.
