INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Tuesday afternoon turned into a perfect celebration of Justin Wilson's life.

His wife, Julia, was back at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Songs from the Rolling Stones, his favorite group, blared in the background. Four-time IndyCar champion Scott Dixon urged others to continue Wilson's very personal campaign against dyslexia. Wilson's favorite cocktails were being served backstage. Even the gray skies and falling rain were reminiscent of his British roots.

A little more than a month after the 37-year-old IndyCar driver died from a head injury suffered when he was hit by a piece of debris at Pocono, some of the biggest names in racing gathered at Indianapolis Motor Speedway for a final tribute to racing's gentle giant.
