Saw it live; knew it was bad when they put the yellow tarp over the car. :(

Rest in peace.

Wow, it's like a movie scene. Hard to fathom that this is real. Really really sad.

RIP champ.

So sad. He was my favorite Indy Car driver. Even worse than that he has 2 very young children.

Always forgot his name, but that was a perfect sendoff by the announcer.

Can't believe I watched my favorite IndyCar driver pass away on live TV...

It's crazy that you can go from racing to win $5,000,000 to 10 ft into the air and into the wall in a split second.

I'm assuming the announcers probably were told, through their ear pieces, that he was probably dead. That's probably why they didn't show a replay.

They showed a replay about 37 times actually.
