    Their body language says a lot. Especially Tony K.
    I would not be surprised to see Dario retire after today. Ashley, I think, would prefer him to.
    A five-lap salute to Dan's memory. He did not survive.

    would a 5 lap moment of silence/no posts be appropriate?

    Perhaps the title of this thread could be changed. In light of events, I can't believe the spoiler aspect should be a concern.

    RIP Dan.

    agreed, as thread starter I'm totally cool with that.

    I started this thread 3 hours ago hoping to discuss a title chase and a great race. neither of those things has happened.

    instead a young man with a wife and two sons lost his life. what a terrible day for motorsports.

    Unbelievable...I am surprised several others weren't hurt as well. Several airborne cars, hard hits... What a loss for our community.

    I had been thinking all along that 34 cars on a track like that were too many. As I watched the frenetic early laps, I had a feeling that something bad was likely to happen.

    R.I.P. Dan; we're going to miss ye......
