NASCAR Sprint Cup cars and Camping World Series trucks will carry a decal to honor the memory of Dan Wheldon this weekend at Talladega Superspeedway.

The Cup machines are competing in the final restrictor plate race of the year in Sunday's Good Sam Club 500 and each will salute the fallen Indy Car start with the specially-designed decal. The trucks will also carry the tribute in Saturday's Coca-Cola 250:

He's inzane!!!! Surprised

Wow, I'm real good at it? Thanks, but I rarely "name call" as you put it, and it was you not "people" I was referring to; however, is it "name calling" when it's true? Whould you have been any less of a cry baby if I simply stated that you're out of touch vs. a dork? Frankly, your comments were inane and nonsensical, and you portrayed yourself as an expert. Then to top it off, you hunt me down in an attempt to one up me because your feelings were hurt? Weak at best and yes, immature would certainly fit your profile.Cry

As for rude, guilty as charged, I guessUndecided(that's me rolling my eyes) I can live with that, sorry you were butt hurt Nancy.  However, if that hurt your feelings, how will you react when I tell you my seven year old son has better grammar than you? Seriously, university of phoenix offers online classes bra, and perhaps you should consider taking a course or three...wowCry

Go ahead, you have the last word, because I won't be back to respond. Are you going to follow me to another thread too to try and get my attention there too?....odd indeed. Frown

Coach, this is the 21st century not the 13th century, I suggest you let go of your stupid, uneducated fundamental views.

I suspect there is someone who knows more about Wheldons beliefs than some Dork that calls himself redlineltd.

Actually b-zane, I know nothing about his beliefs ergo my comment. However, it is satisfying to know that I got under your skin. Why else would you make a weak attempt at getting me back because of the comments I made regarding your ridiculous asinine post a few days ago.

Grow up dude; you're just making yourself look immature and petty.

To Coach: I just want to say that people have their own ways of grieving. Some go to Christian churches, and some don't. To imply that Christianity is the only way to cope is just plain wrong.

As for the decal itself, if you're going to put "Lionheart" on it, make it fully legible...

Overall though, it's a great thought and tribute on NASCAR's part.

Good to see NASCAR honor a fallen member of the racing community.

To answer the question about Dan Wheldon's religious beliefs, I know his wife Susie was raised a Seventh-day Adventist but I don't know if she's still active in the church.

Great gesture by NASCAR.  I think this just goes to show the impact Dan Wheldon had not only in the Indycar world, but in across all forms of auto racing.

Very nice gesture by Nascar! The decal is sharp.
