My father, Sal Incandela passed away on October 3.

The Indianapolis Motor Speedway and Donald Davidson kindly wrote this piece on him. So did others, including Racer, SPEEDTV, AutoWeek, blogs and many more. It has meant the world to me and my family. The emails, texts, phone calls and every thought and prayer have been overwhelmingly touching. So a big thank you to everyone that has been there for all of us.

A thank you really doesn’t suffice – you’ve been wonderful.

There will be an Indianapolis Memorial for Sal on Saturday, November 5th from 3-5. It will be held at the Brickyard Crossing Golf and Conference Center: 4400 W. 16th st. Indianapolis In 46222. Click here for Google Maps. You’re invited.

Please join us in celebrating my Dad’s life, your friend’s life. And if anything, please stop by to give my Mum a hug. She loves a good hug.

There will be laughter, tears and lots of stories shared. I hope to hear some from you.
