IMS lights Pagoda in honor of Leffler

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Indianapolis Motor Speedway is honoring the late Jason Leffler with a tribute atop the iconic Pagoda scoring board.

Leffler died last Wednesday in an accident at a dirt track in New Jersey. His funeral was Wednesday in North Carolina.

IMS officials illuminated the scoreboard with the number ``50,'' which was the number on his car when he ran the 2000 Indianapolis 500. The scoreboard was also illuminated with ``1975'' and ``2013'' for the years Leffler was born and died.

Indianapolis Motor Speedway chief operating officer Doug Boles said lighting the Pagoda was the speedway's attempt to remember Leffler and honor his accomplishments as a race car driver.
