Wilson honored as friend Dixon wins IndyCar championship

SONOMA, Calif. (AP) — Stefan Wilson stood in a circle of crew members in front of his brother's car, the entire group swathed in T-Shirts commemorating Justin Wilson.

The group spoke softly before Sunday's season finale, then broke by yelling "Justin!" in unison.

Then they stood together at the car as Wilson was honored in a series of pre-race tributes at Sonoma Raceway. There was a video of him, a moment of silence and "God Save the Queen," England's national anthem, played as a tribute.

Finally, the number 25 was written high above the raceway during a flyover.
