Two-time Indianapolis 500 winner Dan Wheldon was honoured at a public memorial service at Conseco Fieldhouse in Indianapolis on Sunday.
Wheldon's family were joined by IndyCar drivers and officials, music stars and a large public crowd to remember and celebrate his life.
On a stage adorned by the Borg-Warner Trophy, two bottles of milk to signify his two Indy triumphs and the IndyCar championship trophy he won in 2005, tributes were paid to the 33-year-old.
"At first, Dan was pretty much the little brother we didn't want," Dario Franchitti, his former team-mate and close friend said.
"And now, we would do anything to have him back. We miss you D-Dub."
Another former team-mate Tony Kanaan said: "I love him like a brother. I'm grateful for the time we got to spend with him on Earth.
"Although that time here is done, our time together is not over. We have our memories. We have our feelings. And one day we will be together again.
"For that reason, I'm not saying goodbye to Dan. Not today. And not ever. Goodbye is final, and our friendship won't end. So for now, I'm simply saying I'll see you later. I love you."
Fans were able to participate by signing banners in Conseco Fieldhouse, leaving condolences and memories.
Wheldon's funeral had taken place in his adopted hometown of St Petersburg on Saturday, with Franchitti, Kanaan and Scott Dixon as pallbearers.
