Congratulations to Indy 500 Champ Dan Wheldon

THREE YEARS AGO when Iowa was suffering from the effects of flooding, Dan Wheldon won the Iowa Indy 250 in Newton and donated his winner’s purse to Iowa flood relief.  Today, Dan won the 100th running of the Indianapolis 500.  Congratulations, Dan, and thanks again for what you did for us back in the summer of 2008.


  1. The end of the race was shocking! I can’t believe Hildebrand crashed! Congratulations to Wheldon on the victory! I’m sure he’ll remember it forever.

  2. It’s interesting to note that Dale Earnhardt, Jr. lost the Coke 600 on the last turn of the last lap of that race, too.
