RIP Dan. This was a pointless race. In the same way that Jim Clark was killed in a pointless race (just doing Colin a favor). Too many cars on a track not suited to IRL car designs. NASCRAP tanks can bash into each other all day, but with the full bodies, and other items they've installed on the cars to prevent them from going airborn, (not to mention they're 40-60 mph slower) they pretty much stay on the ground. 34 open wheel cars, drivers of varying talent and experience, running in a 220 mph pack. That was going to be a death sentence for somebody. IRL needs it's version of Jackie Stewart to step up and say ENOUGH. Dan Wheldon should not die in vain.
