The racing community is mourning the loss of one of its own.
FOX News Radio’s Tonya J. Powers has details:
IndyCar driver Justin Wilson’s being remembered for his kindness and his racing ability.
(Miles) “Anyone who follows our sport knows Justin is one of the most well-respected, highly regarded and loved people in the entire pack. He will be missed.”
That’s Mark Miles, CEO of Hulman & Company, the parent company of IndyCar series.
Wilson, who was 37 years old, was hit in the head by a piece of debris that had broken off another car on Sunday at Pocono Raceway. His car then hit a track wall.
The last IndyCar driver to die from an on-track incident was Indianapolis 500 champ Dan Wheldon, who was killed in 2011 in Las Vegas after his head hit a fence post when his car went airborne.
