The winning bid Nov. 2 for the helmet worn by Dan Wheldon in the May 1, 2010, Verizon IndyCar Series race at Kansas Speedway was $9,000 on 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.
Justin 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 $690,000 has been raised through the auction, additional fundraisers and donations.
