  41. Chevrieux Says:

    Good evening,

    I’m French and auto racing enthusiast, I look at the various championships on Canalsat and Motors TV. During his victory in 2005, I was already with Danica Patrick and efficient fuel, and in 2011 with the crash in the last corner prbablement of the fact that it was Deventer, Dan Wheldon won the race. That terrible day of October (16), three days before my birthday, I was in front of my TV set, I set up specifically for this last race of the year.

    I wanted to convey to his family my deepest condolences and hope that this family can live again normally in the future. I personally made ​​a donation to the memorial site Dan Wheldon and I’m proud. Do the same if you can.

    Sincerely, a fan

    My heart is truly saddened by your passing Dan. You achieved what we all hope to achieve, you were a champion not only on the track, but you were an even greater champion of life. Your giving heart will forever be missed and Indy will never be the same. I live not far from the track. The 500 was important…not anymore. Rest in peace.

I went to the 500 this year to see all the tributes for you. They were all beautiful. The only thing missing was you. Your wife and children are beautiful and I pray for them to find peace.
