Though one of the youngsters in NASCAR, Jason Leffler has a wealth of experience behind the wheel, thanks largely to his father, a big racing fan.
"He got me started and just loved all types of racing. He was definitely a huge influence on me," Leffler said. "My dad passed away... but he was involved in my career right up until he did.
"He owned all my race cars up until 1997, when I moved back to Indianapolis and started racing for other people, but he was always heavily involved in it and very supportive. Him and my mom were -- my whole family is, really -- so it was a great atmosphere for me."
Leffler started racing at age 13 in quarter-midgets before advancing to the three-quarter-midget ranks three years later.
In 1999, he became the first driver in 37 years to capture three straight USAC National Midget titles. That year, Leffler also made his inaugural venture in the ranks of NASCAR when he entered the Busch Series event at Indianapolis Raceway Park.
He also made his ARCA debut that year, finishing fifth in an event at Atlanta Motor Speedway.
His success led to a Busch Series ride with Joe Gibbs Racing, where he scored two top-five and four top-10 finishes on his way to a 20th-place ranking in the point standings.
