Two years ago Mike Conway suffered severe injuries after a last lap accident in the Indianapolis 500. Conway's No. 24 Dads Root Beer Honda got airborne after running over Ryan Hunter-Reay's rear tire. While airborne, Conway's machine went chassis first into the fence in Turn 3 and the impact cut his car in half.

Today, Conway had another scare.

Conway lost control on his No. 14 ABC Supply Co. Honda when his front left wing scrapped the track entering Turn 1. The wing was damaged after Conway ran over his gas man one lap prior on his pit stop exchange. The team wanted to bring Conway back in to fix the wing, but they were one lap too late.

Conway spun and hit the outside SAFER barrier in Turn 1 and was hit by Will Power while against the wall. Power had nowhere to go and the contact lifed the No. 14 machine airborne as his car literally slid drivers side first just inches from the fence. If his car was just inches higher or even lower, his head would have scrapped against the fence or wall. The impact quite possibly could have killed him at those speeds and would have been another tragedy the series doesn't need.

Luckily, Conway's car landed without the driver's side cockpit making contact with anything and he walked away unscathed. Hopefully, he can finish a race without a scary incident as this was the second 500 in a row Conway has had a bizarre wreck (last year he didn't make the race).

Coincidentally, Dario Franchitti has won both races in which Conway had his frightening incidents.
