The racing world has lost a big one.  A man who’s driving talent and off-track antics made the IRL a more enjoyable series.  More importantly a guy who lived with passion, for his sport and for his family.

I never had the opportunity to meet Dan, but after seeing him wearing shirt’s in the paddock that read “actually won the Indy 500”, and, “Danica who?”, I can only imagine how cool he was.  It is heartbreaking to see someone so young die, and my heart goes out to his family.
