Dan Wheldon race-worn helmet among items in final days of Wilson Children's Fund auction


A helmet worn by Dan Wheldon in a Verizon IndyCar Series race is among the items featured in the final days of the Wilson Children's Fund auction on eBay.

The helmet was donated to the charity auction by Wheldon's widow, Susie, who signed the helmet along with sons Sebastian and Oliver.

Wilson succumbed Aug. 24 to a head injury sustained in a race the previous day. Proceeds from the auction of racing, other sports and entertainment memorabilia and other items will be directed to Wilson's family. More than $6750,000 has been raised through the auction, additional fundraisers and donations.
