ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -- There's rarely any warning of what will trigger the emotional roller coaster Susie Wheldon has been on since husband Dan Wheldon's fatal crash in last year's IndyCar finale.

A familiar coffee shop brings back a flood of memories; a song can make her sad. Most recently, it was a trip to the emergency room for 1-year-old son Oliver. In an instant, she was reliving the frantic efforts to save the two-time Indianapolis 500 winner following the Oct. 16 crash at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Seven months after the accident, Wheldon returns to racing at the Indianapolis 500 for ceremonies honoring the defending champion. In an exclusive interview with The Associated Press, Wheldon said she's not sure how she'll handle returning to the track her husband loved so much.
