NASCAR to Honor Dan Wheldon at Talladega

TALLADEGA, Ala. (AP) -- NASCAR is providing all its teams a decal that honors Dan Wheldon to place on their cars this weekend at Talladega Superspeedway.

The two-time Indianapolis 500 winner was killed Sunday in the IndyCar season finale at Las Vegas. Many NASCAR drivers knew
Wheldon. The decal is of the Lionheart Knight image that Wheldon affixed to the back of his helmets.

NASCAR is also producing a helmet decal for any drivers who would like to use them. Some drivers already have their own plans in place to honor Wheldon, including Brad Keselowski, who will have "In Honor of Dan" written across his back bumper.

NASCAR will also hold a moment of silence for Wheldon before the
start of Sunday's race.
