Verizon Team Penske’s Will Power believes that following his second victory of the season he is back to where he was and that he feeling good.
The Australian secured his 22nd Verizon IndyCar Series victory in eleven seasons in the sport. Power is in third place in the points standings 85 points behind runaway leader and Penske team mate Simon Pagenaud.
Power missed the opening race of the season the Firestone Grand Prix of St Petersburg due to an inner ear infection but securing his second win of the season has shown that he is back to his best and with seven races remaining this season he is still in with a great chance to win the championship.
Speaking following the race at Road America Power commented by saying:
You always dread that late restart, but I thought, ‘I’m going to make the absolute most of it and do the best I can and try to get a jump. I knew I had push-to-pass in hand, which I thought before the race is going to be the key here, to keep that for the end, and that’s what I did.
Power led 46 of the 50 laps of the Kohler Grand Prix at the Road America circuit and he went on to say@
Very satisfying race. Very satisfying because I felt like I’m back where I was, and that’s a good feeling for me.
The next stop on the calendar sees the Verizon IndyCar Series head to Iowa for the Iowa Corn Indy in two weeks time.
