Indy car racer Dan Wheldon was killed today in one of the ugliest accidents in racing history. He was just 33 years old. This was the last race of the season, but, ironically, it was only his third race, as he had been unable to find a regular ride. One of his only two other races was in the Indy 500–which he won for the second time.
Our hearts go out to his family.
