Officials are still trying to explain the two-car crash Sunday that killed driver Paul Dana during the warm-up for the season-opening IRL IndyCar Series race at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
Dana, 30, a rookie driver for a race team co-owned by David Letterman, died after slamming into another car.
On Monday night's "Late Show with David Letterman," he spoke about the crash, saying, "It's not hard to imagine the despair and sorrow that Paul Dana's wife, Tanya, and the rest of his family are feeling now.
"I want them to know that they have the thoughts and the prayers of myself, the entire Rahal-Letterman team, and the entire racing community and, hopefully, that will give them the slightest amount of comfort."
