Mike Conway, Will Power Involved in Accident
Mike Conway and Will Power have ended their day after an accident that appears to have been caused by bad track conditions. Going into turn #1, Conway got a little loose on his rear wheels — after coming back onto the track after a penalty for hitting a couple of his crew members — and was hit by Will Power from behind. Power drove under Conway's car, which lifted him up into the air.
Conway found himself flying ass-first along the wall, head toward the wall (although he never hit it), while Power managed to get down to the infield.
Later replays showed Helio Castroneves finessing his way into the warmup lane to avoid one of Conway's tires that had been rolling down the track. He bumped the tire, and asked for a new tire and for a quick look at his right front wing.
Luckily everyone was okay, and Conway and Power were both able to get out of the car under their own power.
