Dan Wheldon, who won one of the most exciting races in the Indianapolis 500’s history this May, has died in the horrific 15-car accident that occurred at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The drivers have decided to end the race and instead do a five lap salute in Wheldon’s honor.
Wheldon is survived by his wife and two sons, age 2 and 5 months. Rest in peace.
