RIP: Dan Wheldon 1978 – 2011

Okay, I am not into car racing much. I don’t watch any of it. I’m not into Nascar, Indy racing or any of that stuff. I’m posting this out of respect. Dan Wheldon, is a British race car driver who races for the, Indy 500. Dan Wheldon was a very popular driver who is considered an icon in the sport.

In today’s race in Las Vegas, the final race for the IZOD IndyCar Series, there was a multiple car crash on lap 12. Most drivers survived, but one of them was killed. The one that was killed happened to be, Dan Wheldon. A young driver at the age of 33, who is married and has two sons.

While this is very sad and tragic, he died what he loved doing, racing. This was a horrible accident. RIP Dan.
