This is a very sad day for Indy car racing. Especially since next year they are planing on rolling out a new design that would be even safer than what they are driving now.
I've never been a fan of Indy, but its too bad.
I got into my hotel room this afternoon. Unpacked a bit and turned the tv on and started surfing. It was a horrific thing to see.
