    Wheldon hurt in huge crash at Vegas

    Sunday - 10/16/2011, 4:24pm ET
    By JOHN MARSHALL
    AP Sports Writer
    LAS VEGAS (AP) - IndyCar driver Dan Wheldon has been seriously injured in a massive 15-car wreck has sent cars flying through the air early in Sunday's Las Vegas Indy 300.

    Paul Tracy, who was involved in the wreck, said a team of doctors were working on Wheldon, but there was no word of his injuries. A helicopter lifted off from the speedway, but there was no indication if Wheldon was onboard.

    Pippa Mann also appeared to be shaky as she was helped to an ambulance.

    The wreck coming out of Turn 2 on the 12th lap left Townsend Bell upside down, smoldering cars strewn all over the track and debris nearly halfway up the straightaway of the 1.5-mile oval.

    Wheldon was in line to win $5 million had he won the race.

    Such an insane crash! So much carnage, from the sounds of it, everyone was not impressed with this track and the amount of cars to begin with.

    They expected a big crash, but this is insane.

    So many cars together, it was kind of inevitable that any crash would turn into something crazy like that. Opened wheeled cars on a banked oval is pretty dangerous. I think Schumacher once said that's one type of racing he would never do because its so sketchy.

    I got to meet Greg Moore at Laguna Seca just shortly before he died at Fontana. ;-) Nice guy, massive talent, a real loss back then.

    I have Greg's car number on all my helmets. He was a hero of mine and a guy I looked up to.

    RIP Dan. It's a tragic day for racing.
