Friend’s trib­ute to Indycar driver who died this week

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Ste­van McAleer has paid an emo­tional trib­ute to Indycar driver Justin Wil­son who died this week.

The 37-year-old died from head in­juries sus­tained when he was hit by a large piece of de­bris that broke off a car in a crash-filled race at Po­cono Race­way on Sun­day.

Ruther­glen racer Ste­van first spent a night out with Justin back in 2007, and re­called that in a Face­book post this week. He wrote: “RIP Justin Wil­son. “We all know the dan­gers of Mo­tor­sports and the adren­a­line rush and ex­cite­ment of the open cock­pit as one of the rea­sons why we love this sport so much but still a very sad day in­deed.

“Had an in­sane night with him and Chris Knox back in Cleve­land in 2007 (see if I can find the pic­tures) when I ran the Skip Bar­ber Na­tional Se­ries. You will be missed my friend.”
