Team Penske’s Will Power heads into today’s IndyCar Grand Prix at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway having taken the Verizon P1 Award for the road course event.
Power heads into the race with two Verizon P1 Awards this year but has so far failed to translate those performances into race wins. At Barber Motorsports Park where he dominated taking pole and dominating the race but was forced to pit late in the race to make a tire change meaning team mate Josef Newgarden took his first win for ‘The Captain’.
Speaking about taking the pole, Power stated:
In the Fast Six, the car had a fantastic balance and did a really neat lap. “I was actually up on the second set and then got too greedy at the end. But yeah, really cool to start at the front again.
Power went on to say:
Really determined to have a good race. “I’ve been knocking on the door every week, and one is going to go our way here soon. You put yourself in that position, it’ll happen. That’s the plan.”
