IndyCar drivers meet about safety

October 24, 2011

IndyCar Series CEO Randy Bernard has called a drivers meeting for Monday at Indianapolis Motor Speedway to discuss safety issues in the wake of the death of driver Dan Wheldon. Bernard said it made sense to conduct the meeting now because most of the drivers were already in the city for Sunday’s memorial service. Wheldon, a two-time winner of the Indy 500, died from injuries suffered in a 15-car accident at the Las Vegas Indy 300 on Oct. 16. Thousands of people attended the public service at Conseco Fieldhouse.
