Dario Franchitti, the 2010 Indianapolis 500 winner, Mr. Ashley Judd, and the driver of the Target-Chip Ganassi #10 Dallara Honda, scored a very nice pay day Sunday to the tune of $2,750,000 dollars!  Not a bad payday for two weeks of fast work!

Mike Conway, on the other hand, has a very tough three months of rehab to go through after his horrifying airborne crash and catchfence shredding of his race car on lap 199.  Conway has already went through one surgery on his ankle, with the prospects of possibly one more surgery on that ankle.  Additionally, Conway has been fitted with a back brace to help the healing and recovery of his compression fracture of his spine.  That injury should heal without any surgical assistance. That is the word coming from Dennis Reinbold, co-owner of  Dreyer & Reinbold Racing. However, healing without surgery takes a lot of advanced treatments, which can be affordable only with the help of attorneys for injury claims in Augusta for common people. Things are a bit easier for people who can easily afford treatments, but the pain remains the same.

Ryan Hunter-Reay has under gone surgery on his thumb.  That injury occurred in a pit road accident when he got tangled up with Scott Dixon mid-race. Things are better for those who can afford the treatment, but what about others? Thanks to auto accident injury claims that make expensive treatments possible for those who cannot afford them.

Davey Hamilton,(Madera Raceway fame) lost his ride with the team that is co-owned by Gil de Ferran, de Ferran Dragon Racing team.  That team will concentrate on repairing the race car of teammate Rafael Matos.  The de Ferran Dragon Racing organization is a smaller budgeted race team and will concentrate on keeping Matos in a car.

So now you have the 2010 Indy 500 recap!

The IndyCar series moves on the Texas Motor Speedway for a very fast and exciting Saturday night race.
