Will Power wins the 2018 IndyCar Grand Prix

IndyCar: 2018 IndyCar Grand Prix at Indianapolis entry list

Will Power parlayed speed with tire strategy Saturday and beat Scott Dixon by 2.2 seconds to capture his third Indy Grand Prix, and Roger Penske's 200th win in Indy cars.

Power is seventh in the drivers' championship on 135 points after his first race win of the year; leader Josef Newgarden is on 178. Helio Castroneves returns to IndyCar after teaming with Ricky Taylor to win a sports vehicle race at Mid-Ohio last week.

Thirty of those wins have been provided by Power. Last year: Lewis Hamilton dominated from the pole to win in Barcelona.

Will Power etched his name further into the INDYCAR Grand Prix record books while extending the legacy of team owner Roger Penske in Indy auto history. "This gives us tremendous momentum going into the 500".

Power overcame a late caution period that reduced his lead, barely won the race off pit lane on the final stop and even drove through some light rain to pull away from New Zealander Scott Dixon for his second straight victory in the event. Power's triumph by 2.2443 seconds over Scott Dixon also marked Indy vehicle win No. 200 for Team Penske, almost double that of any other team.

Power led 56 of 85 laps.

In the fifth season of a $240 million, 10-year contract, Cano has played in at least 150 games in each of the last 11 seasons. Robinson Cano was forced to leave the Mariners game Sunday against the Tigers with a fractured bone in his right hand.

Not only was it Power's third victory in the GrandPrix and his second straight, he also beat Dixon previous year, and it was also the 200th IndyCar victory for Roger Penske. Dixon, in the No. 9 PNC Bank Chip Ganassi Racing Honda, collected the 39th runner-up finish of his career (third all time) and the 97th podium finish (fifth all time). He and Power both pitted on lap 21 with Wickens putting reds on while Power put on blacks.

Starting 18th Dixon avoided some opening lap drama that brought out an early caution. Once Rahal came down pit road, Wickens took the lead back.

"Wickens came in on reds and I was on blacks, and man, I've never driven so hard to watch a gap grow, especially when I went to the reds, then had to try and pass him back", Power said of the tire strategy that marked his duel with Wickens.

"Yeah, I just was hoping that he was maybe concentrating on saving fuel because I knew it was going to be fairly hard to get the mileage that we needed to, " said Dixon, a native of Auckland, New Zealand. As they entered the first corner, Simon Pagenaud made a gutsy move to gain position. "I was pushing as hard as I could". "I was just a nose ahead".

From there, Power kept Wickens and then Dixon in his mirrors to the finish - all the while stretching his tank of Sunoco E85 ethanol to the checkered flag.

Make every day your Mother's Day
We felt it was our obligation to give back; to make sure our community had what it needed; to fill in the gaps for some people. He's an awesome dad what with his cheering and bath-giving, but fatherhood is just not as involved as motherhood.

Wickens fought off Alexander Rossi to keep the final podium spot, and Sebastien Bourdais got around Rossi to come home fourth.

The 2018 IndyCar Season continues on Saturday afternoon with the running of the IndyCar Grand Prix.

"They were giving me a number, and I wasn't able to hit it", he said. "So, let's see if I can go one better". We've kind of practiced it a little bit in warm-up where you do like one lap of fuel save.

Qualifying for the Indianapolis 500 is next weekend with the race on May 27.

Race organizers reviewed two first lap incidents that sent four cars off the 2.439-mile, 14-turn course.
