Indy 500 Winner Dan Wheldon Dies After Crash in Vegas

2 time Indy 500 winner Dan Wheldon died after being airlifted from the result of a 15 car accident in Vegas. Wheldon was running a promotion starting from the back of the field. He would have won a 5 million dollar bonus if he finished in first place. The wreck happened on lap 13 as cars began to lose control and Wheldon went air bourne for about 200 yards......Indy drivers were concerned about the amount of carsrunning in this race at a track that produces very high speeds and cars bunched up.

RIP Dan......a sad day in sports indeed

I sat and watched in stunned silence. It was just so sad.

Very sad. More so that Dan just won the Indy 500 and was loved by all.
Thoughts and prayers.
