Why do we watch Nascar? Obviously for the crashes. Mike Conway and Will Power provided us with a pretty spectacular crash at the Indy 500 today. They were both okay and random car parts flew into the air. Dario Franchitti ended up winning the 2012 Indy 500 for a third time which is an impressive feat. Not only did Conway’s car slam into the wall but it flew up into the air. Video after the JUMP!

Have something from Nascar today that we missed? Spotted a hot chick we need to investigate? Do your thing.
