NASCAR Issues Statement Regarding Wheldon’s Death

Earlier today, many of us racing fans witnessed the fiery crash that took the life of IndyCar driver Dan Wheldon.  Tonight, NASCAR CEO Brian France has issued a statement regarding his death on behalf of the sport.

“”NASCAR offers its deepest sympathies and condolences to the family of Dan Wheldon, his teammates, and the entire IndyCar Series community for their tragic loss today. They will be in our thoughts and prayers during this very difficult time.”

I do wonder If and how NASCAR is going to pay tribute to Wheldon?  I read that several drivers (Jr, Montoya, etc) knew him.  I hope though that they atleast honor him with a moment of silence during the pre-race ceremonies at Dega.
