I didn’t even know who he was but happened to turn the TV on and saw the live coverage of the race, actually after the race had been cancelled.

I was struck by just how clearly the other drivers are saddened.

Wow, I’m always surprised when I see these horrible track crashes, and the drivers are not injured..I’m sorry, Dan W wasn’t so lucky.

RIP, Dan.

Now there’ll be endless replays of the accident by the morbid media.

I thought “breaking” was supposed to a racist term?

watched the whole thing...big open wheel/Indy fan and today was suppose to be an exciting day...terrible crash- smacked the catch fence and the back sheared off...he was a good guy- broken down in victory lane after winning the Indy 500 for his mom who is suffering from Alzheimer..Wheldon drove the National Guard car in Indy for years and was always complimenting our troops...very, very, sad...

Later AP thread:

“IndyCar is very sad to announce that Dan Wheldon has passed away from unsurvivable injuries,” IndyCar CEO Randy Bernard said.

Did anyone notice the tough looking driver, sort of looked Italian to me, sitting in his car prior to the 5 lap tribute?

The guy was crying so bad I wondered if he would be able to drive.
