Yesterday, after noting that Mike Conway had managed to crash on each of the four of the tracks in the IndyCar schedule thusfar , I quipped if it was too early to start a Darren Manning rumor. According to Robin Miller, it is not.
Look for Darren Manning to replace Mike Conway, who crashed heavily Sunday morning and suffered a bruised lung. Manning, who ran the first two races of 2009 for Dreyer & Reinbold, got a call from Dennis Reinbold and had his seat in Gasoline Alley by Sunday night...Meanwhile Conway is convalescing at a local hospital, recovering from a bruised lung. The D&R team, via twitter, has said he's " cracking jokes at Methodist hospital last night. Feeling well this morning...sore of course."
