Massive Wreck Kills Dan Wheldon

The wreck which caused the death of Dan Wheldon.
  Las Vegas Motor Speedway, October 16, 2011

The motorsport community is stunned today. Dan Wheldon was driving for Bryan Herta Autosport when he and more than a dozen other drivers were involved in  a massive wreck in turn 2 of the IZOD IndyCar World Championship race at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

I have two pictures. I chose not to upload the video. I just don't feel like it. Wheldon is a two-time winner of the Indy 500. I was at that race and saw him take the checkered flag this past May.

Wheldon, an Englishman, is survived by his wife and two young sons.
