Dan Wheldon Memorial Karting Event (Slideshow)
Photos taken Oct. 26 at the Dan Wheldon Memorial ProAm Karting Challenge at the New Castle Motorsports Park, which raised funds for Alzheimer's Association. Susie Wheldon, the wife of the late Indy Car driver Dan Wheldon, hosted the event. The Alzheimer's Association's work is significant to the Wheldon family because Dan's mother was diagnosed with the disease. Susie and Dan's fans continue the work Dan was doing for the Alzheimer's Association before he died on Oct. 16, 2011, in a racing accident at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
The event raised $100,000 for the Alzheimer's Association.
Marino Franchitti crossed the finished line, giving his team Big Machine Records the victory. A timing error discovered later divided the victory between the teams of Big Machine Records and Machine of Awesome.
