The race world lost an amazing driver this afternoon at LasVegas International Speedway. Dan Wheldon lost his life today in a 15 car pile up on the 13th lap of the last race of the season. He leaves behind his parents, 3 brothers a sister, a wife and two young sons.
Ironically he had just finished the final testing for a new, safer car that is to be unveiled in the 2012 Indy season.
RIP Dan, the whole racing community and all of your fans will miss you greatly.
