IndyCar » Dan Wheldon's $2.5 million payday


Dan Wheldon might be unemployed after his Indy 500 victory on Sunday, but he's not going to be short of cash for the foreseeable future - after pocketing $2.5m for the day's work.

@ Don,

Yes I have seen it.... I've been at the track back in the days when there were multiple chassis, engines, etc...
Back in the day when it wasn't just entertainment but racing too...

So you suggest sseeing the highlights? well then, you aren't really seeing the race are you? Highllights are exactly that...highlights... the best parts of the race.

Monaco a parade? Don't make me laugh...

And yes, I agree with Pam and yes I am American.

The Indy 500 is a Great Race, now dating back over 100 years. It is the first Super Speedway. It has international flavor and has had it since 1911.

As someone else said, if you have never been, then you don't understand. Heck Dario said it meant little to him in his rookie year (2002). He said he did not understand, but after one race (finished 19th) he did understand and it became the most important race on the schedule by far.

He grew up with Jim Clark as a hero and wining in 2007 was extra special as his head now was on the same trophy as Clark.

Great race this year, great history of auto racing.

Anyone who thinks Indycar racing is not exciting should have been at Rockingham a few years back when the outcome of the race was decided on the last corner of the last lap! Dramatic, spellbindingly fast, wheel to wheel racing, exciting pit stops and drivers who show no fear whilst travelling at over 200mph inches from concrete walls, now thats what I call exciting!! Rockingham turned out to be the fastest of all Indycar circuits and the interval display by an RAF jet has left me deaf to this day!!
