About the track

The 2.38-mile permanent road course has 17 flowing turns and features 80 feet of elevation change that challenge drivers and engineers. A 45-foot-wide racing ribbon also makes it imperative for patience while setting up overtaking opportunities.

Race Review

Will Power, who inherited the point when Team Penske teammate Helio Castroneves pulled off for this final service stop on Lap 68, held off Scott Dixon for the remaining laps that included a Lap 74 restart and won for the second year in a row at the picturesque venue.

“That was an awesome race,” said Power, who tied Dan Wheldon with 16 Indy car victories. “(Race strategist) Tim Cindric kept putting me in such a good position so we could use our speed. That last restart was kind of hairy. I knew Scott was going to be really quick and hounded me for a couple laps there.

“Just with good stops and good strategy calls put me out in clean air so we could use our speed.  We slowly passed one by one.  It was a very good team effort, absolute team effort.  The strategy was perfect.  The stops were perfect.

“We were quick when we needed to be, put ourselves in a position to win, which I did not think was possible this morning.”
