IN MEMORY OF IRC DRIVER DAN WHELDON WHO DIED AT LAS VEGAS RACE TRACK YESTERDAY

 

This is definately off topic. I’m a big race fan, no matter what the sport, so this hits home hard. Dan Wheldon was killed in a multiple car pile up on track in Las Vegas yesterday at an IndyCar event. Condolonces go out to Wheldon’s family and friends of the sport. KGS

  1. Thank you, KGS. I’m really bummed out about Wheldon. I really liked him and thought racing could have given him a better deal in life. His 2005 Indy 500 victory was overshadowed by Danica Patrick’s 4th place finish. His 2011 Indy 500 victory was followed with no ride for the remainder of the season.

    Someone put together Dan’s ride for the Los Vegas race in order to insure that the current Indy 500 champ would compete. It was not meant to end like this.
