Justin Wilson Dead at 37 After IndyCar Wreck
IndyCar driver Justin Wilson has died after a head injury at Pocono Raceway in Long Pond, Pa. over the weekend. He was 37.
IndyCar made the announcement on Monday night at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
The British driver’s head was struck by a piece of debris from another car. His car then veered into an interior wall.
The last person to die in IndyCar during a race was Indianapolis 500 champion Dan Wheldon in 2011.
A lot has been done in improving the safety of these races, but still, racing is a dangerous sport.
