IndyCar drivers find comfort in getting back to work

SONOMA, Calif. (AP) — It was back to work for IndyCar on Friday as its drivers were able to climb back into their cars as a distraction — albeit a temporary one — from their grief over the death of Justin Wilson.

Wilson died Monday of a head injury suffered a day earlier when he was stuck by debris from another car at Pocono Raceway. The 37-year-old British driver left behind a wife and two young daughters.
