Indy 500 champ dies in season finale...
 
former series champ and 2X indy 500 winner, dan wheldon was involved in a firey 15 car crash that sent his ride up into the catch fence. the injuries sustained were unsurvivable. his peers decided to end the race after 5 tribute laps.

classy.

its a good thing that the world of auto racing has gone so long without such a high profile tragedy such as this. i guess it is ineviitable that a death in the sport will eventually strike again, though.
