IndyCar delays test out of respect for driver Wheldon

Posted:

IndyCar officials have canceled this week's two-day test of the new 2012 car at Las Vegas. The move comes two days after Dan Wheldon, who did most of the testing for the 2012 car, was killed in a fiery 15-car crash at the same track.

Target Chip Ganassi managing director Mike Hull says IndyCar made the call on its own and that his team will test the new car later this year.

Four-time series champ Dario Franchitti was scheduled to run at the 1.5-mile oval today and Thursday. He and Wheldon were close friends.
