Hello all;
I hope you all had a great weekend.
Mine was very busy with a over zellus wife to be draging my ass here and there.

On a very sad note

Indianapolis 500 winner Dan Wheldon died Sunday at Las Vegas Motor Speedway after his car became ensnarled in a fiery 15-car pileup, flew over another vehicle and landed in a catch fence just outside turn 2.
The 33-year-old racer was a two-time Indy winner, including this year's race.

Three other drivers, including championship contender Will Power, were hurt in the pileup during Lap 11.

Wheldon was airlifted from the track to University Medical Center; about two hours later, his colleagues were told of his death.
"IndyCar is very sad to announce that Dan Wheldon has passed away from unsurvivable injuries," IndyCar CEO Randy Bernard said. "Our thoughts and prayers are with his family today.
IndyCar, its drivers and owners, have decided to end the race."

In his honour, drivers, many sobbing openly, took part in a five-lap salute around the 2.4-kilometre oval.

RIP Dan Wheldon, you went out doing what you loved, that has to count for something.

Doing what you like is what it is all about. Put my 928 back together this weekend have an appointment, with my Porsche expert on the 28th. I need to get back on the road with this car and make some new stories. That is what I like.
