SONOMA, Calif. – Sage Karam has a strong support system that his Chip Ganassi Racing teammates believes will help him through the death of Justin Wilson.
Karam's car spun Sunday at Pocono Raceway in a single-car crash that sent the 20-year-old into the wall. Debris from the crash flew everywhere, and the nosecone bounced down the track and struck Wilson in the head.
The English driver was airlifted to a Pennsylvania hospital with a head injury and died a day later.
Scott Dixon said Wednesday he has spoken to Karam briefly, and that the entire Chip Ganassi Racing organization will be there for the young driver should he be affected by Wilson's death.
