Kasey Kahne looked to Jason Leffler when he made the move to NASCAR as both began successful NASCAR careers in the early 2000s. Now, Kahne is looking out for Leffler's son, Charlie Dean.
On Monday, Kahne tweeted: "#LEFturn hats can be ordered here. All proceeds benefit Charlie. Thanks for the support. bit.ly/11k1d76" (@KaseyKahne)
The embroidered flex fit hats can be purchased at Kahne's online store, by phone, at Kasey Kahne Racing in Mooresville, N.C. or Kasey Kahne Merchandising in Enumclaw, Wash. and at the Daryn Pittman and Cody Darrah merchandise trailer at World of Outlaw races.
"We did a lot together at Indianapolis, and then as he moved to Charlotte," Kahne said last Friday. "I followed him down to Charlotte not long after.
"Jason Leffler was a good buddy of mine, and it's neat to see how the racing world and the fans and his friends and everybody has supported him for the last four or five days," Kahne said after Sunday's Quicken Loans 400 at Michigan International Speedway.
"That showed the person and the racer that he was. I'm just glad I could say he was one of my good friends."
