Racing vet Dan Wheldon dies in crash at Vegas IndyCar race - CNN.com
Indycar Crash at Las Vegas Speedway 2011 ~ R.I.P. Dan Wheldon - YouTube
Crazy bad wreck. RIP Dan Wheldon.
rip. crazy ass wreck.
Anyone found the actual cause of death other than 'unsurvivable injuries'. Morbid curiosity.
The car flipped up and slammed helmet-first into the barrier fence at almost full speed. I'd guess neck/spine.
While doing what I love, I feel is the best way to go.
Whenever I'm asked how I'd like to die, I always say 'Painlessly in a spectacular fiery race car crash at the top of my game'. He stole my idea! RIP.
I watched the vid of them doing the 5 Laps for Dan and I felt so sorry for his kids
If anyone wants to watch it...

Also, what's this i've been hearing about NASCAR complaining about this track after it got redone/remodeled? Apparently they thought something like this was bound to happen...
Thanks. All the stuff was SUPER zoomed out on the crash so I really couldn't see what happened.
Yeah, can't watch that shit without tearing up, and I'd like to think I'm not a bitch. Shit like that gets to me and hits pretty close to home, almost as much as seeing an escorted flag-draped coffin.
May he rest in peace. I just hope the rules don't change now because of this, because it couldn't have been prevented -- racing is dangerous business.
