      Always a sad day for all motorsports when one loses a competitor.

          The last race of their season, so will make a long (time thinking) off season for the other drivers, crew members, and family. Happened on lap 12. They called the race, and did a 5 lap (3 cars abreast) tribute to him. Emotional place, for a gifted driver. May he RIP....

                      I just heard from a friend, shocking but, a part of racing that we seem to forget now a days with the level of safety in racing.

                      A great driver.

                      RIP DW.

                              First time I've seen other racers completely in tears over a trajedy. Shows how well liked and respected racer Wheldon was. RIP Dan.
