    Hello,

    I’m sure everyone has heard of the sad passing of Dan Wheldon at the Las Vegas race this weekend. I will be the first to admit that I loathe most N.A. based racing series (Lemans now withstanding) so I don’t follow oval racing at all, in any form. The comments I’ve read on Jalopnik state that a concrete wall + open wheel = instant easily avoidable death. If so, whats with the ovals?

    Please help

    I didn’t find the right solution from the internet.
