Indianapolis.. Will Power was spot on

It was an amazing day for racing at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for the IndyCarGP.

Perfect weather for racing! All levels of Indy Car had races all leading up to incredible performance by team Penske !

Will Power wins his 2nd straight GP at Indy. His strategy with his “Red Tires” was spot on. Power pressed the push-to-pass button at precisely the right moment to give Roger Penske’s his 200th series win!

Power had a late caution period that shrunk his lead, barely won the race off pit lane on the final stop and even drove through some light rain to pull away from Dixion who had great battle in the pack to make it to second by 2.2443 seconds for his second straight IndyCar Grand Prix victory.

Also let’s not forget the other Canadian over at Schmidt Peterson Motorsports Robert Wickens, finished third, more than 8.1 seconds off the pace. I said to Robert after the race “Hell of a rookie year your having” His response was simply “The years not over yet” and it may just end with him being the Rookie of the year! Wickens. Despite fading late when he was saving fuel, he has started three races in the top six and finished in the top-five three times. He would probably have four top-five if not for a late crash at St. Petersburg.

Ok time to turn focus to the 102nd running of the Indianapolis 500, we do that starting on Tuesday.
