Jun 04, 2021
and one thing he was worried about going into this race was all that dirty air created by 34 cars, but right now, the position he's in, he actually has a bit of an advantage because everyone else has to open the plane in front of him. to him and even here us going up turn number two oh multiple cars involved oh my gosh Dan Weldon may be involved in this and Eddie you and I talked about this this morning at the drive-in just this many cars, the speed, just the possibility of what they call the big one and what happens in conditions like that when you're even 300 yards behind that you can't stop these cars so the only option you have is to try to avoid it and it was impossible avoid nothing there and you saw the willpower of his car involved too omg what a mess that's Townsend Bell that was I don't think his car was on the side there on 22. 15 there from Jay Howard an extra entry sorry he's up to 195 0 they i can see in the sunlight there if any of the car is brother ken they are showing that as alex lloyd the 19. one of the cars actually flew about 200 yards in the air.

The red flag is here at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on lap 12. And you can see the Carnage I from the top. We'll talk about the car that goes through the air. Eddie, you know these cars run so low to the ground that we mentioned earlier that we saw them hit the ground causing anything under the car under the floor under the tub to really just get the air underneath. the car itself and it will go up we saw J.R Hildebrand get out of his car thank you is Dario Franchitti somehow made it past Carnage I mean there's nothing I can do willpower aren't you going to get pulled over in pit lane on the side right they want the drivers to stay in the cars but kitty was hinting that there is nothing i can do to avoid the debris that is on the track well there is debris everywhere you can see how many cars wrecked and this was the one thi ng and it's the 18th of James Jakes now he had a wreck early in practice Friday that's actually a KV racing backup car they put together for him now I don't see much damage there but it's out of the cockpit and look at this from above and this was the only thing we feared when we saw qualifying and the two championship contenders in the middle of the field a big

crash

like this early in the race what happens in

crash

es like this is that one mistake by anyone it could be dirty here it could be anything it multiplies so fast you start piling up cars there's no way you can control what happens once you stay up we talk three or four wide look sebastian's from asia ready a little contact now same as he's trying to go from the low side to the higher from the high side down to get going for the turn and what ends up happening is he gets stuck up there he turned around tried to make another move coming down guys and the reverse started to come around and that started the Chain Reaction he was uncomfortable being in the Top Lane and he tried like you said there's the car now there are two cars that are Airline this puts Big Welding in perspective this It's the horrible accident that everyone has always hoped would never happen and like we said we now know that there are 15 cars involved out of the 34 that started on board with Will and it gives you another perspective on what exactly happened. mind in this 15 car melee and eddie as we know when you're driving at these speeds you're covering the length of a football field in less than a second then something happens in front of you you can never have enough reaction time it's impossible no you have time to do nothing what happens maybe it's just a little miscommunication between two drivers someone spins and you have 20 cars arriving on the scene at 220 as you know we just mentioned it's very difficult to try to avoid it and as Dario mentioned he's just looking to try and not hit the car in front of him or the cars after him that are there and luckily for him he made it through before everything started to go topsy-turvy but it's also where you position yourself on the track, he said. he simply said in his interview that he hated being around cars that he felt uncomfortable around everyone he was doing something we are getting word that Randy Bernard is here our thoughts and prayers are with his family today IndyCar his drivers and team owners have decided to finish the race in honor of Dan Weldon the drivers have decided to do a five lap

salute

in his honor it will take place in about 10 minutes thank you there will be no one on one interviews or questions thanks ok we are late on that and folks this is the hardest part of our job and The last time I had to do this was in 2006 with Paul Dana, but today we lost Dan Weldon here at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

I can't hear from Mercy Medical Center right now in the trauma department, and as you can imagine, there's a lot of excitement here, Dan Weldon's wife, Susie. they are two little boys, his three brothers and his sister were all with their secondary team. Team owner Sam Schmidt is here. They told me that Dan Weldon's parents are at his house in England. bringing his family here to Las Vegas and there are a lot of friends and family surrounding the outside trauma area right now Jamie and obviously no further information is available for J.R Hildebrand Pippa man or willpower as they are still being treated at the Medical Center College this closes out the season Scott, like I said, not the way we expected at all, uh, absolutely not Marty and I think Dan is a great guy, a very, very fast race driver, someone I'm certainly going to miss. not just here at the IndyCar track but some all the time at the car track and someone all the young drivers looked up to Eddie and we will continue to look up to an amazing human being with such enthusiasm and I am totally lost I just can't believe what it just happened, he always had a smile on his face, in fact, he had done three television broadcasts with our team versus, the people who do the races c hen we're gone and who knows, I may have had a career there a lot of people ask me why I always say goodbye until we meet again because goodbye is always so final goodbye Dan Weldon
