UPDATED: Coming Together For Jason (#LEFturn) Leffler

UPDATED:

According to the AP’s Jenna Fryer story tweeted above:

But Leffler still invested specifically with his son in mind, his loved ones say, and took steps to ensure his son would be cared for before his death and in the event of his death. He had disability insurance and other policies, and funds established for Charlie.

Good to know that Charlie will be taken care of, not just by Jason, but by racing community comes together:

Being in sports/social media is not always centered around the “fun” of sports. There is a sad side to.

On Wednesday, the NASCAR family lost one of its own after a tragic accident at the Brighton Speedway in New Jersey. Jason Leffler, affectionately known on the circuit as #LEFturn, was killed after his car crashed into the wall during a sprint car race on Wednesday night. The grief and outpouring of condolences and support on Twitter was felt across the sports community as a whole.

These tweets show how the racing community, and hopefully, the Twitter community can come together as a whole to help support Leffler’s 5-year-old son he left behind.

There’s more that can be done. NASCAR’s Brad Keselowski and Indy Racing’s Tony Kanaan are out to prove it:

Follow Brad, Tony and other racing drivers/media for more in the next few days ahead:
