Dan Wheldon Way

Dan Wheldon Way (StreetView)
On March 7, 2012, the city of St. Petersburg paid tribute to the late Dan Wheldon by naming this short stretch of roadway "Dan Wheldon Way" and plans to erect a nearby permanent memorial.

This section of road serves as Turn 10 on the annual IndyCar street course race held here. On April 3, 2005, Wheldon made a pass for the lead in this turn on his way to winning the event. Wheldon and his family lived in St. Petersburg since 2005. He perished in a racing accident at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway on October 16, 2011.
