Mike Conway is certain it will take him only one lap to get up to speed at Long Beach and he believes he's a threat to win Sunday's race.

That would be some comeback.

Conway is back in an IndyCar after walking away last year because he was uneasy racing on ovals.

The Englishman missed most of the 2010 season with serious injuries to his back and leg suffered in a last-lap crash at the Indianapolis 500. He was also in the 2011 season finale at Las Vegas when Dan Wheldon was killed. The next oval race for those IndyCar drivers after Wheldon's death was last year's Indy 500, and Conway was involved in an accident with Will Power.
