INDYCAR | Power Cruises to IndyCar Grand Prix Victory

05/13/2017 07:39 PM

Will Power has had his fair share of setbacks this season.

On Saturday afternoon, the stars finally aligned for the Team Penske driver.

Power dominated, leading 61 of 85 laps en route to the second IndyCar Grand Prix victory of his career at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course.

It was Power’s 30th victory all-time and his first of the 2017 Verizon IndyCar Series season.

Soctt Dixon and Ryan Hunter-Reay rounded out the podium, finishing second and third respectively.

The next race on the schedule is the 101st Running of the Indianapolis 500, which takes place May 28 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
