Dan Wheldon net worth: Dan Wheldon was an English racing driver who had a net worth of $15 million. Wheldon was born on June 22, 1978 in Emberton, Olney, England, and died on October 16, 2011 at the age of 33. Wheldon got into kart racing at the age of four, and raced in several circuits around England, moving to the United States in 1999. Wheldon continued to race in open-wheeled circuits, winning the U.S. F2000 National Championship in 1999 before joining the IRL IndyCar Series in 2002. He joined Andretti Green Racing the following year and won Rookie of the Year honors. Dan Wheldon won his first IRL race in 2004 at Twin Ring Motegi in Japan. In 2006 he won the 24 Hours of Daytona. Wheldon is probably best known for being the 2005 Indy Racing League IndyCar Series champion, and also winning the Indy 500 in both 2005 and 2011. Wheldon died during lap 11 of the IZOD IndyCar World Championship at Las Vegas Motor Speedway when he was involved in a 15-car accident that sent his car airborne. Since his death, the Dan Wheldon International Driver Trophy has been given to the best performing international driver over the race weekend of the Australian V8 Supercars Gold Coast 600.
Daniel Clive Wheldon (22 June 1978 ??? 16 October 2011) was an English racing driver. He was the 2005 Indy Racing League IndyCar Series champion, and a two-time winner of the Indianapolis 500. Wheldon died from injuries shortly after a collision at the 2011 IZOD IndyCar World Championship at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on 16 October 2011, at the age of 33.

Wheldon, who was born in Emberton, near Olney, Buckinghamshire, England, took up karting at the age of 4 with funding from his father. He progressed through the junior ranks of motor racing during his school years. Attending Bedford School until he completed his GCSEs at age 16, he frequently took time off to race. During his early career in open wheel racing, he developed a rivalry with Jenson Button before ultimately leaving the United Kingdom to race in the United States. The reasoning behind the move was that the level of investment needed to fund his racing career in the UK was beyond his family's resources. Moving to the United States in 1999, he spent several years in lower open-wheeled circuits like the U.S. F2000 National Championship, the Toyota Atlantic Championship and Indy Lights.
In 2002, Wheldon moved up to the IRL IndyCar Series for two events with Panther Racing as teammate to Sam Hornish, Jr. Wheldon joined Andretti Green Racing the following year, taking the spot of Michael Andretti following his retirement, and collected league Rookie of the Year honours. In 2004, he won his first IRL race at Twin Ring Motegi in Japan; ultimately finishing as runner-up to teammate Tony Kanaan in the championship with three wins.
He won the Indianapolis 500, as well as the IndyCar Series championship, in the 2005 season. His six victories in 2005 also broke the record for most victories in one season (under IRL sanction), previously held by Sam Hornish, Jr. with 5. His win at Indy was the first for an Englishman since Graham Hill's victory in 1966. In November 2005, it was announced that he would b
