The problem is that some drivers only have had 3 races a year, so they rusty and Dan was one them, as Sam said he was going for it. $5 million bonus was waiting. Everyone needs to the blame here. Drivers teams and indycar. If it was not Dan i could of being TSHECK. If teams can't enter a car for all year then you dont race. Check out F1. Very sad day.

IndyCar always has been, still is, and always will be a highly dangerous sport. Albeit not as dangerous thanks to much improved safety. Even leaving out the controversial catch fencing which is thought to have contributed to Dan Wheldon's fatal crash, it is still very dangerous. A driver can still hit a much slower or stationery car at full-on speed as happened to Paul Dana's fatal accident 5 years ago. Same happened to Alex Zanardi, he was fortunate to escape with his life but sadly lost both his legs. I have nothing but the greatest of respect for these drivers. I have paid countless tributes to Dan. RIP Dan Wheldon 1978-2011

All indycar need to change is the catch fencing and replace with the steel cage setup we Use at the Australian formula 1race it wouldnt tear cars up at all and if they are worried about strength run traditional catch fence behind it as im sure if it failed it would still have taken enough energy out of the crash for it to be minor contact with the catch fence
