TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - New Jersey state police say a mechanical problem is to blame for the dirt-track racing crash that killed NASCAR driver Jason Leffler last week.
The state police released some findings Friday from its not-yet-complete report on the June 12 crash at Bridgeport Speedway in Logan Township.
The report finds that Leffler was not able to turn, so he slammed into a wall as he came out of a turn. Blunt-force neck injuries are cited as his cause of death.
