Mechanical failure led to death of NASCAR driver Jason Leffler

The New Jersey State police reported that NASCAR driver Jason Leffler died as a result of a mechanical failure in his race car when competing at the Bridgeport Speedway in Logan Township on June 12.

The fatal accident occurred when a sprint car torsion bar stop in Leffler’s car was displaced, destroying the suspension and steering system in the process. He lost control while negotiating a tight curve and smashed into a concrete wall.

Although the report did not indicate the speed of Leffler’s car, race officials said the race cars were running as fast as 150 mph.

Leffler, who was born in Long Beach, California, died from extreme neck injuries. He was 37 years old.
