Kahne and Stewart to honor Leffler
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Kasey Kahne and Tony Stewart are entering next month's Chili Bowl Nationals in honor of the late racer Jason Leffler.
Kahne will drive a car entered in combination with Stewart, Leffler's girlfriend, Julianna Patterson, and former father-in-law, Bob East., in the Jan. 14-18 race at the Tulsa Expo Center in Oklahoma.
Plans had been for Leffler and Patterson to co-own the car, and Leffler and East to build it together before Leffler's death in a June sprint car crash. East continued the project following the accident, and Patterson turned to Stewart for help after the three-time NASCAR champion broke his leg in his own sprint car accident last season.
