In 2011, we lost an incredibly important man, not only to the INDYCAR family, but also to the Green Savoree Racing Promotions family and St. Petersburg, Fla. community, Dan Wheldon aka “Lionheart”. His impact continues to be felt throughout the paddock, from his fellow athletes who loved him, the up-and-coming drivers who idolized him, and the fans who cheered for him.
