IndyCar Summons Drivers to Discuss Wheldon's Death

IndyCar Series CEO Randy Bernard has called a driver meeting for
Monday to discuss Dan Wheldon's fatal accident.

A series official said Friday that Bernard asked the drivers via
email to meet with him at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The memo
said the meeting was not mandatory and for drivers only.

Bernard said in the memo he felt it was important to discuss
"recent events." Wheldon was killed Sunday in a 15-car accident
at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

The funeral for the two-time Indianapolis 500 champion is
Saturday in St. Petersburg, Fla. A public memorial is scheduled for
Sunday in Indianapolis.

Because most drivers likely will be in Indianapolis for the
service, Bernard felt he should call them together as a group to
discuss the accident.
