SONOMA, Calif. (AP) IndyCar drivers got back to work Friday, climbing into their cars as a distraction - albeit a temporary one - from their grief over Justin Wilson's death.

Wilson died Monday of a head injury suffered a day earlier when he was stuck by debris from another car at Pocono Raceway. The 37-year-old British driver left behind a wife and two young daughters.

The loss of one of the most popular drivers in the paddock has been difficult for his peers, but many said Wilson would have wanted Sunday's season finale at Sonoma Raceway to go on.
