JASON LEFFLER, 37
No words will ever express the profound loss felt by the USAC family after learning of the passing of its great Champion Jason Leffler, fatally injured in a racing accident at Bridgeport, N.J. Wednesday night. One of the most personable drivers ever to grace the USAC scene, his character extended far beyond the racetrack and his presence will be dearly missed by all who knew him. USAC extends its heartfelt sympathies to his family, associates and legion of friends and fans. We will forever hold him dear to our hearts and his memory will last through eternity. God speed, Jason.
