Power hits a wall

Herald Sun - Motoring - - Motorsport -

AUS­TRALIA’S Will Power slammed his Penske car into the wall at Homestead, Florida, in the fi­nal IndyCar race of the sea­son last week­end, hand­ing a record-ty­ing third cham­pi­onship to Scots­man Dario Fran­chitti. Power held a 12-point lead be­fore the race, but limped into 25th with bro­ken rear sus­pen­sion, al­low­ing the de­fend­ing cham­pion to claim the crown with an eighth place fin­ish and a five­point ti­tle mar­gin. The race was won by Scott Dixon, from Danica Pa­trick and Tony Kanaan.
