10:30a ET — Good morning and welcome to Michigan International Speedway!
10:45a ET — Today, we race on in honor of Jason Leffler, who lost his life Wednesday in a sprint car crash. Leffler was respected not only for the way he raced on track, but also how he handled himself off the track. Leffler was a great teammate, an even better friend and a doting father to his 5-year old son, Charlie Dean.
Here’s a look at some of the tributes you’ll see on track today, including Denny Hamlin’s No. 11 Toyota which is running the same paint scheme that was used when Leffler drove the car in 2005.
