Statements from Joe Gibbs and FedEx on the Passing of Jason Leffler

Statement from Joe Gibbs Racing Owner Joe Gibbs on the passing of NASCAR driver Jason Leffler:

“Everyone at Joe Gibbs Racing is saddened to learn of the passing of Jason Leffler last night. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and especially to his son Charlie. We feel fortunate to have had him as part of both our Nationwide Series program and of course in the Cup Series where he helped us launch the No. 11 team with FedEx. NASCAR is unique in that it really is one large family and Jason was well liked by all that knew him. His loss will be felt across the entire sport.”

Statement from FedEx Senior Vice President of Marketing Laurie Tucker on the passing of NASCAR driver Jason Leffler:

“Everyone associated with our Joe Gibbs Racing sponsorship team is deeply saddened about the loss of Jason Leffler. He was an integral part of the formation of the No. 11 team at Joe Gibbs Racing in 2005 and our hearts and prayers go out to his family during this difficult time.”



Just looked at my pictures I took in July of ’04 when I first visited the JGR shop. The prototype paint scheme of the #11 FedEx Chevy with no driver listed above the window. Props to Jason for getting the program started. Godspeed!
