Very sad news coming out of the Poconos.

IndyCar driver Justin Wilson died on Monday night from a head injury he suffered at the Pocono Raceway when a piece of debris from one of the cars struck him. He was 37.

Via the AP:

Wilson, a British driver who lived outside Denver in Longmont, Colorado, was hit in the head during Sunday’s race by piece of debris that had broken off another car. Wilson’s car veered into an interior wall at the track, and he was swiftly taken by helicopter to a hospital in Allentown, Pennsylvania.

“Can’t even begin to describe the loss I feel right now. He was my Brother, my best friend, my role model and mentor. He was a champion!” his younger brother, Stefan, also an IndyCar driver, tweeted. Stefan Wilson said his brother’s organs would be donated.

We extend our prayers and condolences to the Wilson family during this difficult time.
