Leffler was killed a week ago when his sprint car crashed into a wall at Bridgeport Speedway in New Jersey.
No coffin was present during the hour-long service for Leffler, who won two Nationwide Series races during his NASCAR career.
Also in attendance was team owner Chip Ganassi.
``I'm sure most people in here will say this is exactly how Jason wanted to go, and that makes it a little easier to handle,'' says Jeff Dickerson of Spires Sports and Entertainment, which represented Leffler. ``But the fact of the matter is, he wasn't ready to go yet. He was having the time of his life racing these cars.''
