Dan Wheldon’s widow selling St. Petersburg home

Susie Wheldon, the widow of champion IndyCar driver Dan Wheldon, is selling the family's Snell Isle home for $2.1 million.

The three-story home on Coffee Pot Bayou features an outdoor kitchen, a large pool, boat lifts and a three-car garage, a listing by Re/Max agent Bonnie Strickland shows.

Dan Wheldon, a two-time winner of the Indianapolis 500, bought the new 4,400-square-foot home in 2005 for $1.9 million.

Born in England, Wheldon's move here cemented the racer as one of the city's favorite sons. Wheldon, 33, was killed in a crash two years ago while racing in Las Vegas. The couple had two sons, Sebastian, now 4, and Oliver, now 2.
