TMS President Eddie Gossage Issues Statement on the Passing of Dan Wheldon

Hours after the tragic passing of IndyCar driver Dan Wheldon, Texas Motor Speedway President Eddie Gossage issued a statement.

“On behalf of the entire staff at Texas Motor Speedway, our sincere condolences go out to Dan’s wife Susie and their two young boys, Oliver and Sebastian. Dan was a tremendous race-car driver and even more tremendous as a person.

“I was fortunate to get to know Dan over the years with the series annually visiting Texas Motor Speedway and he always arrived with that infectious personality and charming wit. His outstanding skill in the cockpit and his personality and good nature out of it will be greatly missed by the entire IndyCar community.”

Since entering IndyCar in 2002, Wheldon had 16 wins and 5 pole positions. His best season was 2005 with 6 wins.  Wheldon was also a two-time winner of the Indianapolis 500.
