I'm not sure how many of you are Indy Car fans, but for those who are, and those who are fans of racing in general, Indy 500 winner Dan Wheldon passed away today in a horrific 15 car wreck, he was 33.

I guess fire extinguishers have to be filled with something other than fire retardant now, because apparently that's offensive.

Just saw this on ESPN.

I don't follow Indy car racing besides seeing highlights of races but still very very sad.

Thougt this said Whedon as in Joss Whedon.

It's still tragic, none the less.

Crazy crash

Whoever set up that race is an idiot to allow 34 super aerodynamic cars to race on a track with no space to get out of the way if something happens
#7
That is terrible. Hope everyone recovers from this okay. RIP Wheldon

I really wish these writers/commentators wouldn't get to the puns before we did.


Too soon.

Maybe one day you'll get hit by a speeding driver, who survives while you are killed.
Jus' sayin


RIP Dan, I was never a massive follower of Indie but I did know of him and it's pretty shocking regardless of circumstance

How was he an idiot because he was a racing driver? Nobody with a young family and wife should die and certainly not because the organisers but way too many cars on a track that couldnt take it.


RIP Dan, such a waste and a massive loss to racing.

Yeah, and that was somebody's friend who died entertaining people. Making people happy.

Something I doubt you'd be able to do.

Was anyone else deeply disturbed at the sound of applause? Or just the general tone of the video.
Quote by vintage x metal
I love you =] I can't say I was very fond of you when we first started talking because you trolled the hell out of my threads, but after talking to you here I've grown very attached to you.

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.

That was pretty intense, you can see his car fly and then get crushed by the other flying car against the fence.
yo.

I BELIEVE

The cheering you are hearing is most likely fans applauding the fact that several drivers got out of their cars safely.

The applause is for the drivers who were safely extricated from their cars. Not sure what you mean by the tone, though - it's not like a crash is unheard of or something never-before-seen in automotive racing. Would you prefer the announcers panic?

Very sad.

Reminds me of one of my dads crashes, not as many or the speed but 4 Shrike P15's collided one guy got killed.

RIP to him
