R.I.P. Justin Wilson

Watching it right now. A nose piece from a crashed car just hit him squarely in the head. Hope he's going to be ok.

He's being airlifted right now.

Didn't realize he was a neighbor, living in Longmont, just 10 minutes up the road...

Re: R.I.P. Justin Wilson

Hard to find a silver lining in Justin Wilson's death, but maybe this is it: Justin Wilson saved six lives with organ donation.  A good guy even in death.
