LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

IndyCar driver Dan Wheldon will be honored next month during a charity go-kart race in Las Vegas.

The event will be held at the Pole Position Raceway on Arville Street near Flamingo Road.

Coincidentally, Wheldon took part in a charity event at the same raceway days before his death following a crash at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Pole Position officials said they would hold a Memorial Grand Prix on Nov. 6, with a portion of the $60 ticket proceeds going to the Wheldon family.

Wheldon, 33, left behind a wife and two daughters.
