    I really am speechless.... what a horrible crash!


    R.I.P. Daniel, you will be missed.

    It's sad but it's also the nature of the beast called racing. At least he was doing something he ejoyed in his death, something millions of Americans do not get to do. Work on a job that makes them happy and content.

    That was sad. It seems like they survive these so often, it's a shock when one so young dies.

    A sad day for racing.

    My condolences to the Wheldon family.

    That has to be one of the worst accidents I have witnessed in Indy Car.

    Just think how awful it wouldve been with no retainer fence to catch the flying cars.

    A sad day indeed. The 5 laps they did out of respect was so sad. Especially with the bag pipes playing Amazing Grace. I cried.... :(

    It mustve been so hard for his wife to see that happen in front of her eyes. God, I feel bad for her...
