In a very unfortunate and large scale crash today at an IndyCar race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, British racing driver Dan Wheldon died due to unrecoverable injuries after his car became airborne and crashed into a wall at turn 2.

The race was canceled following the accident.
Racing is an inherently dangerous sport, even with all of the improvements in safety response, equipment and race car engineering. While it is always possible for tragedies like this to occur, it is always a sad day when the racing world loses a driver.
