^ Our seats at Indy are next to a family of big DW fans. When he won this year they were ecstatic...I was happy the little girl saw her favorite driver win, I remember being a kid and seeing my favorite at the time (Arie Luyendyk) take a 500 victory. People who don't follow the sport (even myself, as my interest is maybe a little bit above casual) seem to think that just because his name isn't the most recognizable and his sport isn't the most popular that it's simply a case of "what did you think would happen, it's racing." Death is certainly a possibility, much more so than many other sports, but that doesn't change that a crash resulting in a death is an anomaly rather than an expectation. Assuming those guys are there next year, it'll be interesting but I'm sure they'll be there in their DW gear as always.
