BROOKLYN, Mich. — A trust fund has been created to help care for five-year-old Charlie Dean Leffler, whose father, Jason, was killed last week in a sprint car crash in New Jersey. He was 37.
A memorial service for Jason Leffler, who made 73 Sprint Cup Series starts, will be held Wednesday at Grace Covenant Church in Cornelius, N.C.
Donations in his memory can be made to the Charlie Dean Leffler Discretionary Trust, c/o Sun Trust Bank, 232 Williamson Road, Mooresville, N.C. 28117. Turner Scott Motorsports co-owner Harry Scott Jr., former Braun Racing owner Todd Braun and Great Clips chief financial officer Steve Overholser will serve as trustees of the fund.
A moment of silence was observed for Jason Leffler before the start of Saturday’s Nationwide Series Alliance Truck Parts 250.
