Dan Wheldon Public Memorial Service To Be Held Sunday In Indianapolis

Dan Wheldon will be honored with a public memorial service at 4 p.m. Sunday in downtown Indianapolis, IndyCar announced on Tuesday night.

Wheldon, 33, was killed Sunday in a horrific crash at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The Englishman was a two-time Indianapolis 500 winner (including this year's race) and was a former series champion.

The public memorial will take place at Conseco Fieldhouse, the arena where the Indiana Pacers play their home games. If you can't attend, the Versus TV network will televise the service live from 4-5 p.m. Eastern time on Sunday.

In related news, IndyCar announced a trust fund has been set up for Wheldon's family (he left behind wife Susie and two young sons).
