2012 Indy 500 Live: Mike Conway And Will Power Wreck On Lap 80

Things are heating up at the Indianapolis 500 as the leaders are coming in for pit stops and the drivers try to navigate the traffic and an evolving race track on a hot day in central Indiana.

Mike Conway's day got hairy as soon as he came for his second pit stop. While coming into his stall, Conway came in wild and took out two of his pit crew and nearly hit the wall. Race officials black flagged Conway on returning to the race, but Conway would soon realize that his car wasn't adjusted properly.

Conway took his penalty and took a tap on the inside track, and on his return to full throttle he began to lose control of his car. Conway's car went up the track and captured a trailing Will Power in the process. Conway's race car crashed hard against the turn 4 wall and went airborne for a brief moment.

Both drivers were unscathed and walked away from the vehicles.

Marco Andretti is still your race leader and has led 55 laps thus far. More from Indy as we get it, stay tuned.
