Conway released after Indy shunt

Dreyer & Reinbold Racing�s Mike Conway has been released from hospital following his accident in practice for the Indianpolis 500.

The Briton was admitted to Methodist Hospital on May 10 following the accident, which saw the former F3 and GP2 racer pick up a concussion.

As a result of that concussion, Conway will not be medically cleared to return to the track before being evaluated by Indy Racing League doctors on 15 May � meaning he won�t return to action until the following day.

�I�m feeling okay,� Conway said. �I just want to thank the safety crew and the IndyCar Series medical staff for recovering me from the car and for taking good care of me. I�m feeling much better and recovering well after one day.�

Team co-owners Robbie Buhl and Dennis Reinbold were both pleased to see Conway had come through the accident without major injury, with Reinbold stating he was now looking forward to seeing the Briton try and secure his slot in the race on bump day.

�We are very happy that Mike is okay and that�s what counts,� he said. �The guys have done a great job in repairing the #24 Purex entry and we look forward to bump day weekend.�
