ESPN’s Nicole Briscoe gives heartfelt sendoff to Dan Wheldon

From The Marbles

Just before Sunday's Talladega race, ESPN aired a series of remembrances of Dan Wheldon, who died last week in an IndyCar race in Vegas. The presentation was heartfelt, touching and a good reminder of how fragile life can be. And it concluded with Nicole Briscoe, wife of driver Ryan Briscoe, offering an emotional on-air eulogy to Wheldon.

Briscoe could barely keep her emotions in check, and her quavering voice was a wrenching counterpoint to the images of Wheldon onscreen. It was a fine, if painful, moment in racing broadcast history.
