Newman Haas race team leaving IndyCar in 2012
It started when two-time Indy winner Dan Wheldon died in a crash at the series’ season-ending event at Las Vegas. A week later, drivers and series officials attended a public memorial service for Wheldon, who had done most of the testing in next season’s new car.
The investigation into the crash is continuing.
The day after Wheldon’s memorial service, drivers met with series officials about how to make the sport safer _ a subject that will continue to be debated into next season.
While testing on the new car has continued, teams have been signing up with engine manufacturers and trying to work out details for their 2012.
Brian Barnhart was removed as the head of race control after a controversial season in which drivers openly questioned decisions ranging from restarts to penalties. Barnhart will stay on as the president of operations, and Bernard is searching for a new race director, who will serve as the senior official in race control and regulate all on-track activity.
Also Wednesday, Bernard said Terry Angstadt had resigned as president of IndyCar’s commercial division and will be replaced by Marc Koretzky, who joined the series in May as director of corporate business development.
