Drivers Dan Wheldon (front) and Will Power crash during a wreck that involved 15 cars during the IndyCar Series season finale on Sunday at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Wheldon, a two-time Indy 500 champion, died of his injuries following the crash. A married father of two, he was 33.

Dan Wheldon goes airborne after he appeared to drive over a car driven by Paul Tracy, who seemed to be slowing down during the fatal wreck on Lap 11. Wheldon flew over a car and landed in a catch fence just outside turn 2. Three other drivers, including championship contender Will Power, were hurt in the pileup.

The race was only minutes old when Wheldon, who started at the back of the 34-car field, couldn't steer clear of a wreck that started when two cars touched tires. In all, 15 cars were involved, including those of JR Hildebrand, Vitor Meira, Charlie Kimball, Tomas Scheckter and Pippa Mann.

The accident appeared to start when Wade Cunningham's car swerved on the track and Hildebrand drove over the left rear of Cunningham's car. Hildebrand appeared to go airborne, and Cunningham's car shot up into the wall, setting off a chain reaction among the cars behind him. Some of those cars slowed, others didn't, and others spun in front of Wheldon and Power. There was so much chaos on the track it was hard to tell who was driving what car.

Within seconds, several cars burst into flames and debris covered the track nearly halfway up the straightaway. Some points of impact were so devastating that workers had to patch holes in the asphalt.

''It was like a movie scene which they try to make as gnarly as possible,'' said Danica Patrick, making her final IndyCar start. ''It was debris everywhere across the whole track. You could smell the smoke. You could see the billowing smoke on the back straight from the car. There was a chunk of fire that we were driving around. You could see cars scattered.''

Also injured in the crash were JR Hildebrand and Pippa Mann. Both were expected to remain in the hospital overnight. IndyCar said Mann was being treated for a burn to her right pinkie finger and would be released Monday morning; Hildebrand was awake and alert but would be held overnight for further evaluation. Will Power was evaluated and released.

Drivers had been concerned about the high speeds at the track, where they were hitting nearly 225 mph during practice. ''We all had a bad feeling about this place in particular just because of the high banking and how easy it was to go flat. And if you give us the opportunity, we are drivers and we try to go to the front. We race each other hard because that's what we do,'' driver Oriol Servia said. ''We knew it could happen, but it's just really sad.''

Track workers unload truck beds of car parts. ''I'll tell you, I've never seen anything like it,'' driver Ryan Briscoe said. ''The debris we all had to drive through the lap later, it looked like a war scene from 'Terminator' or something. I mean, there were just pieces of metal and car on fire in the middle of the track with no car attached to it and just debris everywhere. So it was scary, and your first thoughts are hoping that no one is hurt because there's just stuff everywhere. Crazy.''

In 2005, Wheldon ruled the IndyCar Series. He enjoyed a career season with Andretti Green Racing. Wheldon won six races and made nine podium appearances. That was enough to top the field and win the IndyCar Series championship.

Dan Wheldon finished in second in the Indianapolis 500 last year, but after leaving the mid-pack Panther Racing team, he found himself out of work for the 2011 season. But he bounced back in May's Indy 500 with a victory of the longest odds.

Dan Wheldon celebrates after winning the Indianapolis 500 in May. Indy was his favorite race, and Wheldon dedicated the victory to his mother, Sue, who has early Alzheimer's, and he spent the next few months in the media spotlight bringing attention to the disease.

The victory was even more remarkable than his first at Indy, in 2005, because he had not even turned a race lap this season when he won the world’s greatest race driving a car for his former teammate and good friend Bryan Herta’s start-up IndyCar operation.

Dan Wheldon smiles during driver introductions Sunday in Las Vegas. Despite not having a full-time ride this season, he was in position for a $5 million payday if he had won.
