UPDATE: 10/17/2011: Break out the tissues:
Various media outlets are currently reporting that Dan and Susie spent their final night together getting each other's initials tattooed inside their wrists. While the rumored tattoo shop refused to comment on the story, Darren Rovell managed to find the picture attached to the left and posted it to Twitter. Just another sad and tragic twist to a sad and tragic story.



Tragedy struck in Sunday's 2011 IZOD IndyCar Series Finale in Las Vegas, when 2 time Indy 500 champ Dan Wheldon was killed in a fiery, 15 car wreck.

In 2008, Dan Wheldon married his longtime girlfriend, and former personal assistant, Susie Behm. Dan Wheldon and his wife Susie Wheldon lived in St. Petersburg, FL with their two sons: Sebastian born February 1, 2009, and Oliver, born March 19, 2011.

Rather than provide a full obituary on the life cut way too short, we'll pass along a passage from their hometown paper, the St. Petersburg Times, which discussed life at home for the young father:
"In a sitting room where broad windows frame a view of Coffee Pot Bayou sleeps the center of the universe, Sebastian Daniel Wheldon, born Feb. 1. Dan Wheldon doesn't much try to deny he's a doting father. A quick summation of any of his previous five sentences will generally contain 10 usages of the words "Sebastian" and "cute.""
Dan Wheldon was 33 years old.

    I am not a racing fan, but I am truly sorry to hear of this tragedy! I pray that God
    will carry Susie through this devastating time. I am saddened by the fact, that the children only had their dad for such a short time. The youngest one will definitely just have memories through photos only. May God Bless all of his loved ones.

    I am so very sorry. It hardly seems enough to say sorry. However, his parents will soon learn what all his friends feel. It will be very helpful, but hard for the entire family. There is no deeper hurt, mentally or physically than losing a child. Many tears that fell yesterday were by parents who know what Dan's parents will go through. Bobby Allison recently said there is no crueler event than losing a child; and that he wished no one else ever has to lose a child. He has lost two children. It is something the parents never get over. I sincerely wish and hope the whole family all the best.

    I am so sorry for the loss of Dan, he was a true champion. Having grown up not far from Indianapolis the race was a big part of our lives. His 2005 & 2011 victory will live on forever and he will never be forgotten. My prayers go out to his family. It would be nice if Indy would set up a permanent memorial to him in the museum.
