Will Powers Way To Win
It was a wash out on Sunday in South America, but on Monday, Indy Car Series driver Will Power came back and finished the rain-delayed Sao Paulo Inday 300.
Power, the pole sitter and re-start leader of the rain-postponed Itaipava São Paulo Indy 300 presented by Nestle, came into the pits for a splash of fuel on Lap 36 (the race resumed on Lap 15). Takuma Sato, who overtook Power on a Lap 25 restart, gambled on stretching the 22 gallons of 100 percent fuel-grade ethanol following a Lap 17 stop that included switching to Firestone Firehawk rain tires.
But the yellow flag she sought didn’t materialize and the second-year driver of the No. 5 KV Racing Technology-Lotus car had to pit on Lap 48 of 55 in the timed race. Power inherited the point and went on to his second victory of the season and the championship points lead.
