Horrible tragedy at the IZOD IndyCar World Championships. Dan Wheldon, winner of the Indianapolis 500 and a guy who we interviewed at the Ortsbo event, passed away on lap 13. The race went under red flag after the 15 pile crash. Everyone sat and waited as Dan Wheldon was airlifted by helicopter to the hospital. There was a two hour delay until the news was announced. The drivers did a five lap salute to Dan Wheldon.
Here's Randy Bernard, CEO of IndyCar announcing the tragic news.
