LONG POND, Pa. – Two drivers have been on the mind this weekend at Pocono Raceway, with Justin Wilson and Bryan Clauson in the memories of the paddock.
Wilson lost his life last August at Pocono when he was struck on the head with debris from another car. Clauson meanwhile lost his life earlier this month in a midget accident at the Belleville Midget Nationals.
Between the BC Forever signage and decals paying tribute to Clauson (Nick Yeoman wrote a great tribute here for IndyCar Radio you can listen to at this link), and the USWAGGEAR tribute socks for Wilson, signs of both have been present here this weekend. Brant James paid tribute to both in this USA Today Sports piece this weekend. The idea for the socks to be worn at Pocono this weekend came from NBCSN producer Terry Lingner.
Here’s a mere sampling of some of what we’ve seen on social media this weekend:
