Dan Wheldon, 33

Two-time Indianapolis 500 winner and 2005 Izod IndyCar Series champion Dan Wheldon was killed in a crash during the finale of the 2011 IndyCar season at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. A native of England who started racing go-carts at age 4, Wheldon moved to the United States in 1999 and won the "Indycar Series Rookie of the Year" award in 2003. He won the Indy 500 in 2005 and 2011, making him the 18th driver in history to win the race more than once. He won the Honda Grand Prix of St. Petersburg in 2005. Afterward, Wheldon, his wife and two young children adopted St. Petersburg as their home.
