IndyCar results, points after Road America: Will Power ends two-year drought to take championship lead

Two-time IndyCar champion Will Power outwitted his teammates for a victory at Road America that ended a 34-race winless streak and moved him into first in the championship standings through seven of 17 races.

With his first victory since June 5, 2022 at Detroit, Power took a five-point lead in the title race over defending series champion Alex Palou, who finished fourth.

“We’re working hard; we want to win the championship,” Power said after completing a Team Penske podium sweep with runner-up Josef Newgarden and third-place finisher Scott McLaughlin. “I think we have the cars and the team to do it. Keep pushing.”

After his 42nd career victory, Power is tied with Michael Andretti for fourth in IndyCar history.

“That was the next one I wanted to get,” said Power, who broke Mario Andretti’s record for career poles in 2022. “That was the one I’d been wanting for a while. To surpass Michael, big fan of Michael’s as a kid. Watched him win a lot of races. The Andretti family, such a big deal, such legends of this sport.

“Anytime your name is around those guys, it’s a big deal. Cool to be equal with Michael.”

After winning at Detroit, Scott Dixon’s title hopes took a hit as the six-time champion finished 21st and tumbled two spots in the standings to third
