Dan Wheldon did all the testing for Dallara last year. The chassis are made near Indianapolis.

I'm glad nascar didn't do anything at Vegas for Dan, shows class as it isn't their driver or their track....no need to step on other series' toes, especially since indycar hasn't had a racing venue to honor him yet....

I kinda disagree, this was the first race at Vegas since the crash but I also see the other side.

It's time for the 2013 IndyCar St Petersburg Grand Prix and the city has again honored Dan Wheldon, this time with a permanent trackside memorial.

Five-year-old Sebastian Wheldon, son of the late racecar driver Dan Wheldon, before leading an honorary pace lap at the fourth annual Grand Prix of St. Petersburg Media Karting Competition at the Andersen RacePark in Palmetto Wednesday afternoon (03/19/14). “I certainly wish Dan was here to witness all of this. It is just something that he would have been so proud to see Sebastian out there and kind of following after his footsteps,” Susie Wheldon said. “I also get great joy from it because I know it was Dan’s passion and seeing Sebastian out there enthused with it and wanting to know everyday, mommy is today a karting day can we go karting.” Teams were grouped at random and paired up with a professional driver for the race. IndyCar Series Drivers included Sebastien Bourdais, Marco Andretti, Simon Pagenaud, Mikhail Aleshin.
