R.I.P. Dan Wheldon

As anyone who follows motor sports knows by now, the racing community lost a great man and a great competitor yesterday in Dan Wheldon. Dan won the Indy 500 in 2005 and 2011 and will be sadly missed. Best wishes to his wife and sons, Godspeed Dan.

Wow, I forgot that post, I posted that when I was new here. A lot of F1 and Indy drivers spend time in carts. I was actually at the track for a practice day when Eddie Lawson showed up with his cart. he was preparing to start his Indy Lights career. I was already on the track and he pulled out behind me. I held him off for a couple laps(probably just heating up his tires), I considered it a victory, given his 4 time world champ status and him being in a 250cc and me in a 100cc cart.

Re: R.I.P. Dan Wheldon

Weird that this came up. I just seriously watched my first F1 (in Belgium) and Indy Car race (Leguna Seca). All I can say is Holy F*&^k!!! I may have a new sport to watch and follow. The Indy car race at LS was the one where that pit crew guy had a tire hanging outward from his hip (looked like a VERY amatuer move) and got clipped hard by another car just pulling out. Anyone see that?
