A Dan Wheldon photo retrospective: Four years on
It’s been four years today, October 16, since we lost Dan Wheldon, INDYCAR’s Lionheart in a horrifying multi-car crash at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. That ended the 2011 IndyCar Series season, wrapped up the use of the prior generation Dallara tub and marked the start of the DW12 era, the car named for Wheldon, who helped develop it.
Not a day goes by that I don’t think about Dan and, with a few minutes’ time available yesterday, I went to my photo archives and found this dozen images that represent the young and mature DDub. Hope you find them worthwhile:
