IndyCar Drivers Honor Justin Wilson on the Golden Gate Bridge

This past weekend drivers and race fans alike were faced with one of IndyCar’s most tragic instances, the death of driver Justin Wilson. Wilson was struck on the head at Pocono this past Sunday by debris from a lead car. He was 37. In wake of this tragedy, a few drivers teamed up to honor him in a unique way: by completely shutting down the Golden Gate bridge. Will Power, Josef Newgarden, Graham Rahal, and James Hincliffe took part in the memorial. Behind the wheel of Justin Wilson’s car was fellow racer and teammate Marco Andretti.

For Marco Andretti, it was a “Very emotional cross of the bridge in Justin’s car.” Andretti and Wilson were new teammates under Andretti Autosport for 2015. The final IndyCar race of the season will take place this weekend at Sonoma, as drivers Juan Pablo Montoya and Graham Rahal vie for the top spot, with former champion Will Power closing in behind as well. Even then, #BadassWilson will be in the thoughts of fellow drivers and fans. RELATED: Watch Deadmau5 Race an IndyCar In Honda's Latest Ad
