Will Power had to see doctor after getting showered in cream puffs

Will-Power-cream-puffs

Indy car driver Will Power (awesome name, right?) won the ABC Supply Wisconsin 250 on Sunday and was treated to quite the celebration. Juan Pablo Montoya and Tony Kanaan, who finished second and third in the race, showered Power in so much stuff that he actually needed to seek medical attention when he left victory lane.

As USA Today sports noted, Power had to visit the track medical staff to get the cream puff filling cleaned out from his ears.

“Poof! It went in,” Power joked. “Cream puff, all that stuff coming out. That’s good. My ears are clean and dry now. That lady was there for a while like squirting, squirting, squirting, doctor is looking in my ear. Yeah, it’s clean.“

Cream puffs are a specialty every year at the Wisconsin State Fairgrounds, so Montoya and Kanaan figured they would use them like milk is used at the Indy 500. Winning can hurt sometimes, too.

Mike Conway goes airborne in scary crash with Will Power at Indy 500 (Video)

Saturday’s Indianapolis 500 wasn’t without a scary-looking wreck, as Mike Conway was sent flying into the air in an 80th-lap crash that included IndyCar points leader Will Power.

The accident came directly after Conway plowed through a member of his crew during a pit stop. The resulting damage on the car’s front wing went without repair, a detail that likely contributed to Conway losing control and spinning out on a subsequent turn.

Power, trailing directly behind Conway, couldn’t avoid Conway’s No. 14 when it became shrouded in a cloud of smoke and drifted helplessly toward the wall. Upon Power’s impact, Conway’s car was lifted into the air along the outside catch fence. The crash brought out the race’s second of eight caution flags. Both drivers later emerged from their cars unharmed but were KO’ed from the race.

Here’s the video. Also worth seeing is Helio Castroneves narrowly missing by the thinnest of hairs a bouncing tire at the 2:57 mark:
