The Fifth Annual Jason Leffler Memorial race will be held at the Wayne County Speedway in Wayne City, Illinois on October 22nd, 2017. The date of the race was changed to a Sunday night to allow drivers who race across multiple series the opportunity to still participate in the Leffler Memorial. The race and its pre-race auction were developed by track owner Doug Stringer in 2013 after Leffler, a long-time friend, was tragically killed during a sprint car race on June 12, 2013 at Bridgeport Speedway. The loss of such an incredibly talented driver and young father was felt immediately within the racing community. One of the main concerns of Leffler’s family, friends and fans after his passing was the wellbeing of his young son, Charlie. Each year a portion of the proceeds from the Leffler Memorial Auction and the Leffler Memorial Race are donated to the Charlie Dean Leffler Discretionary Trust.
The Fifth Annual Jason Leffler Memorial Benefit Auction will be located at Trackers Lodge – Banquet Hall in McLeansboro, IL. The Leffler Memorial Auction features a combination of silent and live auction items. A portion of the proceeds from the auction are donated to the Charlie Dean Leffler Discretionary Trust. The trust was established after the passing of Jason Leffler, a long-time friend of track owner Doug Stringer, in June 2013 in order to help in the needs of Leffler’s young son, Charlie.
The Leffler Memorial Auction acts as the official kick-off to the Jason Leffler Memorial Race, which will be held at the Wayne County Speedway facility on October 22nd, 2017.
