A rep for GoDaddy.com, one of Dan Wheldon's sponsors, sent TMZ this statement on behalf of their CEO and founder, Bob Parsons:

"Our thoughts and prayers go out to Dan Wheldon's family and friends on this sad, sad day. All of us in the IndyCar family feel an unexplainable sense of loss. Not just for the sport, but for all who knew Dan Wheldon. Dan was a family man, a father, a husband, a son and a brother. The two-time Indianapolis 500 winner was also a competitor and a colleague ... our deepest condolences go out to all who knew Dan."

Wheldon died today during a race in Las Vegas. He was 33.
