NASCAR Driver Jason Leffler Loses Life In Sprint Car Accident

Filed under: R.I.P.Sad SadNASCAR

This is so sad!!

A driver named Jason Leffler from NASCAR was killed in an accident Wednesday night after a heated race in a dirt car event in New Jersey.

He was pronounced dead upon arrival at the hospital. He was 37 years old.

Here's what NASCAR said in a statement:

"NASCAR extends its thoughts, prayers and deepest sympathies to the family of Jason Leffler who passed away earlier this evening. For more than a decade, Jason was a fierce competitor in our sport and he will be missed."

What's even more heartbreaking is Mr. Leffier leaves behind a 5-year-old son named Charlie Dean.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Mr. Leffier's family during this tremendously difficult time.

NASCAR Legend Dick Trickle Has Committed Suicide

Filed under: R.I.P.Sad SadNASCAR

dick trickle nascar suicide dead rip sad driver legend

This is just awful news for the world, especially for the NASCAR community who knew him well.

Legendary driver Dick Trickle, who even used to smoke cigarettes while racing because he was so good, has passed away due to an apparent suicide. He DID leave a note at the scene of his death.

Sources say that Dick had been sick for a while and depressed. Authorities in North Carolina say he shot himself at Forest Lawn Cemetery in Lincoln County — and they even received a call before his death saying they would find his dead body there. He was found next to his pickup.

We have word that his body has been removed from the scene and taken to a nearby hospital.

Such a sad day for racing, and our hearts go out to his friends and family.

Driving in El Lay can be a harrowing experience! Even for a vampire like Kristen Stewart!

The actress was the responsible party in a minor car accident Friday afternoon, while out on the town visiting a friend!

And thankfully, it was only a fender bender and no one was injured…because there were a few kids in the car that she hit!

According to eyewitnesses, the driver of the other vehicle exchanged her insurance information with the actress, and although there was a small amount of damage to her rear bumper, was able to pop a loose piece back into place!

President Obama's Ride Gets Towed!

barack obama car break down

Whoops!

During President Barack Obama's first historic visit to Israel today, his $1.5 million dollar limo broke down.

Yes, even the President of the United States has car problems!

The run-down ride, formally known as The Beast, had to be towed after the presidential driver put gas in the car instead of diesel.

UGH! It's so hard to find good help these days!

Fortunately, seeing as he is the president and all, the secret service had a back up limo so his packed schedule wouldn't fall behind.

At least one of his 600-person entourage didn't eff up! LOLz.

Ch-ch-check out more pics from Obama's car-troubled visit to Israel (below)!
