INDYCAR: Pagenaud, Clauson honored during banquet
The Verizon IndyCar Series used Tuesday night as a platform to honor season champion Simon Pagenaud, but it provided Bryan Clauson’s family with a special moment.
Clauson succumbed to injuries suffered in a USAC midget crash 10 weeks after making his third Indianapolis 500 start at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in May. Fan voting made him IndyCar’s Most Popular Driver for 2016.
“He would say he’s not really an IndyCar driver, and he would have been honored that you think of him as one,” his fiancee, Lauren Stewart, said.
