Huge ups to IndyCar for its handling of the release of the investigation into Dan Wheldon's death. The only blemish was the too-short 14-hour notice of the news conference.
But once the conference started Thursday, everything was a case study on how to conduct these things. IndyCar president of competition Brian Barnhart did an outstanding job of stepping through the findings in a prepared statement and in answering questions. Barnhart's statement was in enough detail to convey the results but not excessive so as to be in bad taste.The video feed never faltered and the sound was optimal as well.
IndyCar also went all in for transparency by releasing the detailed report findings in a 49-page PDF format. (View here.)
Huge shout outs to VP of PR Amy Konrath, CEO Randy Bernard, Barnhart and the entire investigative posse.
