Dancing With The Stars May Lose A Front-Runner To A Knee Injury — Find Out Who Definitely WON'T Be Dancing Tonight!

She used to dance, but then she took an arrow to the knee.

Okay, not really… but one Dancing with the Stars pro is about to be forced to take some time off the dance floor all because of a knee injury.

According to reports out of the ABC reality TV show, Sharna Burgess apparently injured her leg during last Monday's dress rehearsal, but was still able to snatch the highest score of the night alongside James Hinchcliffe thanks to a knee brace!

However, we're now hearing that doctors want her to rest for at least three weeks in order to heal. The only problem is… that's exactly how many more episodes there are!!

Sorry, James…

With that said, Sharna's potential withdrawal doesn't automatically mean disqualification for the IndyCar competitor — he'll be dancing with Jake T. Austin's already eliminated partner Jenna Johnson Monday night — they just probably won't be getting to the mirrorball trophy together now.

We guess this is good news for fans of fellow front-runners Laurie Hernandez, Terra Jolé, and Megatron, though…

Do U still foresee James and Sharna fighting it out in the DWTS finals??

Get well soon, Sharna!

This is such tragic news.

Following Justin Wilson's car crash at Pocono Raceway on Sunday, we're sad to report that the IndyCar driver succumbed to his head injury.

The 37-year-old was in a coma after a fellow racer spun out and sent debris flying at Justin's car, causing him to drive head on into a barrier.

Justin was initially airlifted to a nearby Pennsylvania hospital, but he unfortunately passed away on Monday night.

Our thoughts are with Justin's wife Julia, younger brother Stefan, and the remainder of his friends, family, and teammates at this unimaginably difficult time.

Rest in peace, Justin.

IndyCar Driver Dan Wheldon Dies During Race

So tragic.

Indianapolis 500 race car driver and two-time champ Dan Wheldon died on Sunday after his car crashed during a huge 15-car accident at the Las Vegas Indy 300.

His car went airborne after hitting the fence during Lap 12 of the race. He was airlifted to a nearby hospital where he died.

The race was soon canceled, however racers did a five-lap turn as a salute to their fallen driver.

IndyCar CEO Randy Bernard released a statement about the incident:

"IndyCar is very sad to announce that Dan Wheldon has passed away from unsurvivable injuries. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family today."

Australian driver Ryan Briscoe described the scene:

"I've never seen anything like it. The debris we all had to drive through the lap later, it looked like a war scene from Terminator or something. I mean, there were just pieces of metal and car on fire in the middle of the track with no car attached to it and just debris everywhere … your first thoughts are hoping that no one is hurt, because there’s just stuff everywhere. Crazy."

Wheldon was 33.

So sad. Our thoughts are with his family during this difficult time.
