I turned on the race when the red flag was on and knew something was wrong when I saw the yellow tarps. I worked for IndyCar a couple years ago as an internship and met Dan. He is a true class act and a very nice guy.

The oval's make for good racing it was just wrong place wrong time. The roll hoop of the car was ripped off upon impact with the catch fence. I hope the new car addresses some of these issues. All racing is dangerous from Nascar to F1. It's all very sad to see.

RIP.
