Forward Thinking Delivers Toronto Win For Conway

Mike Conway took the chequered flag around the streets of Toronto in yesterday afternoons IndyCar race. Driving the No. 20 Fuzzy’s Ultra Premium Vodka car for Ed Carpenter Racing, Conway notched up his second win of the season in great style, beating second place Tony Kanaan by 3.5418 seconds.

Sunday turned into a congested race day, having to run the cancelled Race 1 in the morning, due to torrential rain. Race 2, however was not completely dry, as rain hit on lap 12, which had people changing to Firestone rain tyres. Conway was then penalised for making contact with a piece of pit equipment from Dale Coyne Racing, which left Conway down the order in 19th position.

By lap 36, Conway had fought his way back to 12th position. Then on lap 43 Conway made the smart decision to pit for slick tyres, while others were still on track with wet tyres. When a yellow flag came out a lap later, for the stalled car of Sebastian Saavedra, others then pitted for slick tyres in the drying conditions. Conway’s early decision to change tyres now had him in 5th position. Conway said, “The tyre temperatures came in really fast and that’s what you need in those types of conditions, so I could just control it and not have to push too hard and enjoy those last few laps.”

Due to the weather conditions, the race was a timed event and with just 4 minutes 33 seconds left, a red flag was shown after a multiple car incident at Calamity Corner. Once the cars had been cleared, the race was restarted and Conway took a commanding win with some outstanding lap times to lead Kanaan and third place Will Power by the end of the race.

Conway’s thoughts on the race, “It was really difficult conditions and we were kind of struggling out there for a bit and then I knew as soon as I could see the dry line, it was time to come in, and it was a great call. The team were fully behind my decision and from there, we took off and controlled the race. I was a little nervous with the red flag at the end but I knew with Justin Wilson behind me, we would be able to cover it; it was great fun out there.”

Mike Conway will compete next in the Mid-Ohio race on the weekend of August 3rd.
