"Missing DW- a champion driver, and a champion in life." A tribute to Dan Wheldon.
In many ways, I had felt a lot of different emotions, when the 96th running of the Indy 500 took place at the famed “BrickYard”. Along with a lot of racing fans, I felt there was something missing, which we all knew, and that was Dan Wheldon himself. As I write this somewhat personal tribute to the man himself, just remembering his triumphs, his struggles, his charm, his charisma, and his “never give up” attitude, made me appreciate and respect him as a fellow human being, and a fellow Brit even more, with being one of the few that have gone over to the USA, and shown how he can adapt and beat the wide plethora of drivers out there.
