NASCAR driver Jason Leffler was killed last night in a crash during a Sprint Car race at Bridgeport Speedway in New Jersey. He was 37 years old, and leaves behind a 5-year-old son.

Leffler had been racing dirt car events most of this year, including last night’s race, which boasted a $7,000 prize for the winner.

Leffler had to be pulled from the vehicle.

Here’s a look at Jason over the years:
