Fatalities – As of 2014, there have only been four fatalities in official Indy Car races over the twenty years of its history. These have included Scott Brayton, who sadly passed away in a crash during a 1996 Indianapolis 500 practice session on May 17, 1996.
Tony Renna also unfortunately passed during a testing session on October 22, 2003. Paul Dana passed away during a crash at the 2006 Toyota Indy 300 on March 26, 2006.
Perhaps the most notable of these four fatalities was also the most recent. Dan Wheldon crashed in a high profile collision during the 2011 IZOD IndyCar World Championships on October 16, 2011. He died soon thereafter.
