“IndyCar is very sad to announce that Dan Wheldon has passed away from unsurvivable injuries,” IndyCar CEO Randy Bernard said in a statement. “Our thoughts and prayers are with his family today. IndyCar, its drivers and owners, have decided to end the race.”
33-year-old Wheldon was a two-time winner of the Indy 500, having scored his previous Borg-Warner Trophy in 2005 — the same year he was named the Indy Racing League IndyCar Series champion.
He had his 134th career start at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, where drivers participated in a five-lap salute in his honor.
