NASCARis to honour the memory of Indycar driver Dan Wheldon at Talladega this weekend, with decals supplied to all teams during the weekend to be displayed on the B-Pillar of the race cars and trucks.

The decal (shown in the main image to this article) is one of the Lionheart Knight that has appeared on Wheldon's race helmets. NASCAR will also make available decals to crash helmets, for any drivers who want them during the weekend.

Several teams and drivers also have their own plans to pay their respect to the Englishman, who died as a result of a crash at Las Vegas Motor Speedway last week.

The pre-race ceremonies will also include a moment of silence before the usual invocation on both Saturday – before the Camping World Truck Series race – and Sunday before the Good Sam Club 500 Sprint Cup Series race.
