A Dan Wheldon photo retrospective: Four years on

October 16, 2015

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 carWheldonandJones1 copy 1-Dan Wheldon-Todd Malloy copy 1-Wheldon overhead copy 1Wheldon copy 1Wheldon in-car copy 1Wheldon mug copy AndrettiandWheldon copy DanWheldon1 copy Wheldon copy Wheldon in-car2 copy Wheldon mug2 copy Wheldon_01 copy 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:
