Power leads IndyCar Grand Prix

Power leads IndyCar Grand Prix

Picking up his first podium finish of the 2018 season was Scott Dixon in the No. 9 PNC Bank Chip Ganassi Racing Honda putting Dixon in second place finish after starting back in 18th. Thirty of those triumphs have come since joining Team Penske in 2009, tying the 37-year-old Australian with Helio Castroneves for the most with the team.

Takuma Sato is the defending champion, while Heilo Castroneves will be seeking to become the first foreign-born driver to win four Indy 500s. Second-place Power stopped on the same lap and went from black to reds.

Will Power wins his 2 straight GP at Indy.

"I know I've got the speed and we can put races together".

"Every lap was like qualifying", Power said. For the fourth consecutive year, the race was won from the pole.

"That was the first race where I kind of felt like a true rookie there in that final stint because I've never had to save fuel before", Wickens said.

"I like to give the young blokes a hard time when I can".

Thirty of those wins have been provided by Power, who won for the third time in the INDYCAR Grand Prix.

"Roger has an fantastic ability to bring together the right people and then provide all the necessary tools needed to win races and championships", said Jim Campbell, Chevrolet's US vice president for performance vehicles and motorsports. I could not think of a better setting.

Falcons agree to terms with defensive tackle Terrell McClain
The Falcons agreed to terms with defensive tackle Terrell McClain on Friday, further solidifying their defensive line rotation. If you're sensing a theme here, it is that injury concerns are holding back the true potential of the Cowboys defensive line.

"It is great to finally be on the podium this year".

But Bourdais, as good a strategist as Dale Coyne, his auto owner, both saved fuel and shepherded his push-to-pass time - that boost of horsepower that can propel one driver by another - wisely.

Rounding out the top five on Saturday was Sebastian Bourdais in fourth and Alexander Rossi, the 2016 victor of the Indianapolis 500, was fifth. "It's a tremendous victory going into the 500".

Three-time Indianapolis 500 victor Helio Castroneves finished sixth in his season debut, 14.3860 seconds behind, after starting 10th. Power's 33rd career victory moved him to within one victory of Al Unser Jr. for eighth place on the all-time Indy vehicle win list; 30 of Power's wins have been with Team Penske, tying him with Helio Castroneves for the most by any driver.

On lap 56 out of 85, Penske's Josef Newgarden tried a lacklustre overtake on Sebastien Bourdais and this led to the American spinning and stalling the vehicle to bring out the final caution which meant the frontrunners were forced into a fuel-saving battle towards the chequered flag.

The Indianapolis 500 is the next race in the championship in a fortnight. His reintroduction to open-wheel racing has been a seamless one.

"I've never raced in a category where you had to save fuel, " said Wickens, who came to IndyCar this season from Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters.

Wickens led for 20 laps during the midsection of the race before Power caught the Canadian with a push-to-pass move in the straightaway, then beat him to the inside of the first turn. Kirkwood leads Baron by 13 points in the championship after four races.
