Will Power Wins IndyCar Race At TMS, Texas : His 31 Career Victory

Will Power battled with Scott, as the two went side-by-side in the closing laps of the IndyCar race at Texas. His 31st career victory, and second this season, was indeed interesting with only 8 making the finish line out of 22. 

"It was a pretty intense battle there at the end with Scott," Power said. "I was kind of working out in my head how I was going to get him over the line because he was kind of able to side draft me and be ahead on some laps, so it was really going to be an interesting finish."

Will Power led 180 of the 248 laps, was the leader when Dixon got wrecked by Takuma Sato, and finished ahead of Tony Kanaan, who other drivers and at least one owner blamed for a big crash earlier that led to a nearly 31-minute red flag.

The final caution came when Sato, driving the same car in which he won the Indianapolis 500 in two weeks ago and pushing for another win, got his left side slightly into the grass on the front stretch with five laps to go. That sent him spinning and also took out Dixon.

Simon Pagenaud was third, ahead of defending race champion Graham Rahal, who was coming of winning both races at Detroit last week to become the first IndyCar driver this season with multiple victories. Gabby Chaves finished fifth and Marco Andretti in sixth was the only other driver to finish all 248 laps at the 1 1/2-mile track.

three races in two weekends since the month of May at Indianapolis, the IndyCar Series takes a week off before its next race June 25 at Road America, the four-mile, 14-turn road circuit in Wisconsin
