Bad ratings, deficit $ increase, and fumbling on Dan Wheldon death means out at Finish the screwup and sell it to Tony.
When Dan Wheldon died that day, the clock was running on Bernard's tenure.
BREAKING NEWS: Randy Bernard steps down as CEO of Indycar effective immediately. Bernard had no experience in motorsports when he was hired in 2010 and his administration has been marred by controversy, fighting with the owners, new racing rules that were not suitable for open wheel cars, and most notably, the death of Dan Wheldon and the approval of the aero package used at the time of his death that created the opportunity for such a crash.
My thoughts are that he is, at least indirectly, responsible for the death of Dan Wheldon, and deserves a lot worse than being fired.
An emergency meeting by the members of the Hulman & Co. board was convened on Sunday to weigh the fate of Randy Bernard, who was ultimately fired.
Dan Wheldon. Marco Simoncelli. Luey Jacob Sharp. A reminder that there's more to life than a football match.

But apparently I cry at like, nothing anymore because Dan Wheldon.
. May want to tell your web guys the picture on your story is Randy announcing the death of Dan Wheldon.
"This weekend, pls spare a thought for Marco Simoncelli and Dan Wheldon -RIP"
one year later, Dan Wheldon is far from forgotten! Great career and great man! On to the news, Nascar will change some things next season. It will go back to the top 36 cars qualify on speed, provisionals for the next 6 highest in owners points, with a past champion's provisional, much like the '90s style. Also the Nationwide field will be cut to 40 cars, probably to reduce starting and parking, which desperately needs addressing. Black and Decker will sponsor Marcos the final few races of the season, great news for the man whom all the tool companies love! Also hearing Dale Jr is interested in Regan Smith for a full Nationwide ride for his team, taking over for Danica when she moves up to Cup next year. Main F1 news is Massa staying at Ferrari, also hearing that Ralf Schumacher, Michael's younger brother, could join his brother in retirement. Ralf has been in DTM (German Touring Cars) for the last few years. Today is Kimi Raikkonen's 33rd birthday, which means there will likely be lots of drinki ...
okay. so for the last few days iv been trying to put into words how I feel as we remember Dan Wheldon who lost his life in the final race of the Indycar season on this date last year in Las Vegas. But to fully understand We must look at what happened on May 29th 2011. Myself, John Newton, and Anthony Halloran sitting in between turns 3 and 4 watching the 100th anniversary of the Indy 500 watching as teams split strategy and with 10 to go nobody had a clue who was going to win. Dan's late pitstop came on the screen infront of us and John looks and us and says "that might be the move that wins the race." And then as JR Hildbrand comes threw the short shoot into 4 i lean over and sarcastically say to Anthony "and he hits the wall" a split second before he pushes up into the wall. as the car slides on the wall we all jump up and down screaming as Dan crosses the finishline first. For me this was not life changing but more validation of why racing is my life. fast forward to the crash and learning of Dan's pas ...
Dan Wheldon's '06 duel and photo finish with Helio Castroneves
a year ago today we lost one of racings brightest lights Dan Wheldon. He was more then just a driver he was a friend, brother, son, father, and husband. He was very happy husband to his wife Susie and a fantastic father of Sebastian and Oliver and wonderful person in general. He always had one of the most best personality's in all of Indy Car racing i remember October 16th 2011 like it was just yesterday my dad and i were both cheering for Dan to win the $5 Million Dollar prize with he would have won 2.5 Million because it was also a lucky fan would win 2.5 as well i remember the contact between Wade Cunningham and J.R Hildebrand then seeing them collect Jay Howard and Townsend Bell but it wasnt over Vitor Meira went down into Charlie Kimball and wrecked the back wing off of E.J Viso then there was Dan in his black and white Bowers and Wilkins Honda flying over Charlie and landing behind Viso flipping upside down and landing in the fence Pippa Mann Tomas Scheckter Alex LLoyd Will Power Paul Tracy James J ...
Funny story.. I was in the restroom at Chicagoland Speedway when Dan Wheldon walked in wearing in Pennzoil Fire Suit, that was the first time I ever met him. He would finish 10th the next day in first Indy Car race.
Dan Wheldon's sister has support group in IndyCar family 1 year after his death
1 year ago today we lost Dan Wheldon. Rest in peace my friend.
Rest in peace Dan Wheldon. 1 year on.
A year ago from today, the world of motor sports was crippled when Dan Wheldon lost his life at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway in the early running of the race. Dan was was one of IndyCar's fan favorite drivers for a reason; his charming personality and his heart of gold... He was, and forever will be, one of the classiest race car drivers off all time! May he rest in peace, it's hard to believe it's already been a year. Dan, we cannot thank you enough for all of the work you put into the DW12 to make IndyCar a much safer sport for it's drivers!
Who could ever resist the smile of Indy Car driver Dan Wheldon?
Exactly one year ago today we lost an extremely talented British double Indy Car 500 champion Dan Wheldon.
One year anniversary of Dan Wheldon's death. Really missed seeing that man race this year in Indy.
One year ago today the racing community lost a great competitor only a few months after winning the most prestigious race not only in Indy Car Racing, but in all of racing. You were taken too soon. RIP Dan Wheldon. God speed.
Long live the memory of Dan Wheldon at Indy in the Jim Beam car. Badass ride
Can't believe it's been a year since the world lost one of the greatest drivers to ever get behind the wheel of an Indy Car!! RIP Dan Wheldon...gone but never forgotten
This is 1st year that we lost Dan Wheldon from Indy Car wreck, your be missed very much!!
It was one year ago today that we lost a true Indy Car Champion. RIP Dan Wheldon.
A year ago in Las Vegas a Indy Car crash took the life of Dan Wheldon. Thoughts go out to his family today
now that football is over a year ago today Dan Wheldon lost his life in Las Vegas Indy Car crash. RIP Dan Wheldon RT!
On October 16th 2011, Indy Car lost one of its greatest champions and icons. Dan Wheldon driver of the Honda. To honor Dan today like this status. Do it not for me, but for his loving Wife and his two young children. Thank you all... We will miss you Dan!
Today makes a year! That I was at home and remember Indy Car race was on, after watching it for 5 minutes I saw huge crash. RIP Dan Wheldon
Dan's entire intention was to win the winning purse. So he could give the winnings to one of the crew members from one of the teams he used to be on. The crew member he wanted to help had a young son who was diagnosed with some kind of cancer. Dan wanted to help! Being totally biased here...if anyone can win from starting in the back it would be Dan Wheldon or Tony Kanaan
The entire Dan Wheldon loss is very sad! Overall it shows what a great person Dan was! He didnt have a full time ride with any of the Indy Car teams. He managed to get enough sponors for two races...the Indy 500 which he won & Las Vegas...
However brief it may have been it was an honor to have known Dan Wheldon...he was a great Indy Car ambassador, champion, friend, and above all else a great hero. Caio dan... You'll always be remembered
One year ago today, the IZOD Indy Car Series lost a true champion as Dan Wheldon died during a race in Las Vegas. Got to spend some time with Wheldon with my job, amazing guy. Oh Danny Boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling From glen to glen, and down the mountain side The summer's gone, and all the flowers are dying 'Tis you, 'tis you must go and I must bide.
So a year ago today I sat down to watch my first ever(non-Indy500) Indy Car race & happened to see the Dan Wheldon crash live.
This time a year ago I witnessed the horrific Indy Car crash that claimed the life of Dan Wheldon. So sad for so a young life to be lost and to leave behind to small children and a wife. My God be with his family on this hard day.
R.I.P. Dan Wheldon, race on in heaven...
A year ago today Dan Wheldon was part of a fatal Indy Car crash, devastating to see it happen..
1 year ago today, Indy Car lost one it's very best drivers ever to compete in the series and the Indy 500. Dan Wheldon is still missed by many including Myself!
Here's the tribute to Dan Wheldon made by NBC Sports. R.I.P Dan. We miss you.
With this being 1 year ago since the fatal Indy Car crash that took Dan Wheldon's life. I am still reminded of this quote from ESPN's Marty Reid. "Many people ask me why I always sign off 'Til we meet again; Because goodbye always seems so final. Goodbye, Dan Wheldon"
today marks the 1-year anniversary of the death of Dan Wheldon. Seems like it's been longer than that with all that's happened since then. I couldn't think of a better way to honor him than remember that the new car he tested and developed created a safe Indycar season with no flips, no major fires, and no serious injuries. Still looks strange not seeing him on the Indycar grid. Entry lists up for Cup and Nationwide, 47 in the Cup series with Bayne back and Kelly Bires back for Go Green Racing. 44 for Nationwide, part-time ARCA driver Hal Martin makes his Nationwide debut, as does Nur Ali, the world's only Pakistani driver and quite possibly the first Muslim in Nascar (I believe the first Hindu was Narain Karthikeyan, who ran a handful of Truck events before returning to F1). Good to see more diversity. Also Jennifer Jo Cobb returns for the first time this season with her Nationwide team. Kenny Wallace will also make another start in the 99. Latest F1 rumors include Esteban Gutierrez moving up to ...
Tommrow marks the one year since we lost 2 time Indy 500 winner Dan Wheldon in a bad wreck in the 2011 Indy Car final race at Las Vegas RIP Dan wheldon
R.I.P. to Mr. Dan Wheldon, who passed away this last October 16th doing what he loved and competing in the Indy Car Finals in Las Vegas.
, Dale Earnhardt Sr died in NASCAR in 2000 and Dan Wheldon's died in F1 last year!
On October 16th We should pay tribute to a Legend. Dan Wheldon 2 Time Indianapolis 500 Champion, and 1 Time IZod Indy Car Series Champion. Forever in Hearts. He always gave us race fans joy. He was Auto Racing's Brightest Light. He was a Charismatic person and he could relate to the fans. He had a couple nicknames in racing and they are The Lionheart, Mr Fashion. He is the only race car driver I know that had between 300 and 400 pairs of puma tennis shoes. God Speed Dan Wheldon The Lionheart you will never be forgotten.
My Dan Wheldon tribute paint scheme on Nascar 2009...i only run it at Las Vegas! Miss u lots Dan

Wow, just realized I will be at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on October 16th; one year to the day after Dan Wheldon's death...
I can’t believe indycar fans are pushing for a tire war less than a year after Dan Wheldon’s death.

Day two in Indianapolis, Indiana took us to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Their Speedway Hall Of Fame houses most of the cars that have won the 500. The last picture shows the first winner of the 1911 race along the winning car, driven by Dan Wheldon (may he rest in peace) this past May. The next post is a short video of a tour around this famous track. What an experience.

Happiest moment of the day was Reece finally getting his Jesse Hockett and Dan Wheldon car.
Definitely. It's like Dan Wheldon. Brilliant British 'export', but virtually unknown in his home country.

While the race may not be until Sunday, there’s plenty of action to check out between now and then. Here’s a rundown of the events on my schedule. You’ll als...
Having thought of those we lost and love.
I just realized this Thursday it's been 10 months since Dan Wheldon was taken from us. It's still hard to believe he's gone

I could write the Dan Wheldon one. Couldn't execute it if my life depended on it.
Not that I don't totally love He is awesome and was my hero before Dan Wheldon (RIP I wish he still raced.
While that wasn't the case, panel says IndyCar has made great strides in honoring Dan Wheldon over the past year.
Panelists felt IndyCar's immediate reaction to Dan Wheldon's passing wasn't ideal. Should have spoken up more.

It is safer but Dan Wheldon died last year.
you forgot about Dan Wheldon last year he passed away after crashing his car
With Dan Wheldon, that was totally preventable. With Dale, he died the way he lived.
I'm crying so hard my chest hurts. Just watched Senna. Makes me I'll and think of Dan Wheldon.
I didn't know Senna but did know Greg Moore and Dan Wheldon. Makes it hard to love this sport.
Fullerton (the man he mentioned at the end) coached Dan Wheldon, Justin Wilson, Allan McNish, and Anthony Davidson.
that's so true. Dale Earnhardt and Dan Wheldon also gone way to soon

Can't help but think if Danny Boy Wheldon was still with us, he'd be rockin the Union Jack in London right about now.
I love the Olympics & always watch as much as I can, but it's sad this year since they're in London & I know Dan Wheldon would be so proud.
Dan Wheldon kissing the bricks for a second time was my first

To my race-fan family on FB - remembering a year ago today: Jim and I took the boys to Indy to watch Nascar practice. I had special passes to a hospitality area where we met one of the nicest ambassadors of the sport - that year's Indy 500 winner, Dan Wheldon. Nicholas shook his hand and told him "I'm a race driver too." Dan asked him about his racing and told him to please wait awhile before driving professional. He said he had two little boys to support and didn't need Nicholas winning all the races, to which Nicholas responded with his great smile! Remembering Dan today and how happy he made one little boy. Gone too soon.
sorry to hear that! Hopefully he is hanging out watching the racing with Dan Wheldon and the crew!
A big Dan Wheldon fan. You started following me.
Some news site is apparently just finding out that Dan Wheldon died. Either that or they're spamming. Either way, shut the *** up.

R.I.P. Dan Wheldon he was a great Indy Car driver

Well, IDK if any of you have heard, but there is a BIG race weekend coming up in Indianapolis this weekend. 4 races, lots of practices, tons of concerts.And do you know what has been in the Indianapolis Star newspaper. NOTHING!!! For a month before the Indpls 500 (IndyCar) there were "special" sections talking about the owners, the drivers, the cars, the tires, the trophy, and unfortunately, too many wonderful articles about the late Dan Wheldon. Am I the only person in Indy that would have appreciated all that information about NASCAR?? Exactly why am I paying to have 20 pages of nothing delivered to my doorstep every morning?? So Carter will have a crossword puzzle to do??? A major, 1 million person city, and our daily "newspaper" is 20 pages big and NOTHING on what's happening this weekend?!? FRUSTRATED.
Honestly, I want to share the joy to my deceased favorite race driver, Dan Wheldon.

I got news that Dan Wheldon was invoveld in a bad crash. I thought the internet was joking until I began to get message after message after message. I never knew about him until 2008. After watching him go to work, do his thing, and drive the wheels off of his cars. He became my hero. I never felt as though I had someone I could really look up to. Someone of such class, such calm, such respect. I wanted to be where he is, that is where my goal in life was. My hero, the one I've looked up to for the final 4 years of my openwheel career, he's gone. I was in awe and extremely proud when he won the Indy 500 knowing he was the man to do it, to lay back and take it at the last opportunity...and just earlier today, I was proud to say he was my hero and should race atleast 1 cup race, and now he's gone. Fly high fly high, I'll miss that smile on camera, but atleast I'll know you'll be smiling and watching down on every one of those drivers. We'll miss you Dan Wheldon.
Anyone ever tell you that you look like Dan Wheldon?
