Just saw this, truly horrific.


Huge crash early in the race, they called the race off and the rest of the racers did a 5 lap tribute. Really sad and gut wrenching to watch.

33 years old, guy was far too young to go. At least he is in a better place now.

RIP Dan :sad:

Never heard of him, and it's a sport I know or care nothing about.

But, he had a wife and children who are now without a husband and father respectively. RIP.

Sad, but when one joins in on a 'sport' (sorry, no, that is NOT a sport) like that, this is the risk one takes. :shrug:

I feel sorry for his family though. RIP.

Very sad.

Dario Franchitti won the championship but lost one of his best mates. Life is harsh at times.

too many cars for such a small track!

A terrible thing to happen. I don´t mean to sound disrespectful, but racing open wheel-, open cockpit- cars that reach such high speeds on oval tracks that have nothing but concrete walls surrounding them is just asking for trouble. Still, it´s a terrible tragedy.
