Watching the crash was crazy. It's not like nascar when they're in giant caged cars. Your head is sticking out of those cars. Pretty horrific. I could only imagine what the families felt watching this.

Sad day for racing. He was one of the good ones! Always loved his rivalry with Danica, he treated her like just another racer, not a girl! And got the best of her more often than not.
One of the scariest indycar crashes I have saw.
Top Three, Gregg Moore at Fontana (never had a chance)
Kenny Brack at Texas (Mirraculous he lived)
and this one, worst NASCAR style pile up I have seen.

this is terrible. I watch F1 and Lewis Hamilton grew up through the various series with this guy, and Hamilton said that its easy to forget just how dangerous this kind of stuff is.

RIP Dan. I truly enjoyed watching him race, and win the Indy 500 this year. Feel for his family, mostly his young wife and two babies. At least he went out doing what he loved, but that's no consolation to his family.

Attitudes are contagious. Mine might kill you.
