    It is really sad. I liked the way the drivers handled it and did the 5 lap ride for him. Great touch.

    The drivers had voiced some concerns about the speeds on that track during qualifying. Upwards of 225mph. It's sad that it takes something like this to get their attention....

    RIP Dan....

    Oddly,
    Dan had been testing a system, earlier this year, that would'ave made it much more difficult for a car to leave the ground in instances just like this.

    R.I.P. Dan


    Rick Huseman was also killed this last weekend in a plane crash near barstow, Ca.
