Last updated on Friday, October 21, 2011

(TALLADEGA, AL) - NASCAR will honor fallen IndyCar series driver Dan Wheldon at this weekend’s Camping World Truck Series and Sprint Cup races at Talladega.

A moment of silence for Wheldon, who was killed in a racing accident at Las Vegas Motor Speedway last Sunday, will be held before the start of both races.

Teams will also be provided a decal honoring Whledon to place on their cars.

The decal is of the Lionheart Knight image that Wheldon wore on the back of his helmets.
