Start .. your ... wind ups! NASCAR driver Jason Leffler delivers first pitch at Chase Field

The NASCAR and baseball worlds collided when Nationwide Series driver Jason Leffler threw out the ceremonial first pitch before Wednesday’s D-backs-Reds game.

Leffler, a California native, sought pitching advice from his friends, but all they said was, “Don’t embarrass us.”

Well, friends of Jason Leffler, we are proud to report that the NASCAR star successfully threw the pitch across the plate on the fly.
