Hildebrand Slams Wall With Big Lead on Final Lap! Wheldon Wins Indy 500 [VIDEO]

It was an absolute sports tragedy.  American J.R. Hildebrand had found himself in the improbable position of leading the Indy 500 by a huge margin as he rounded the final turn and hit the homestretch.  Then he slammed into the wall, uncontested, and blew his chance at auto racing glory.  Dan Wheldon took advantage and won another Indy 500.

    His margin was NOT huge – watch the videos again. Wheldon would have passed him if JR had waited until after turn 4 to pass Kimball. Wheldon was 1/2 way through 4 at the moment JR crashed.
