Power hits wall

The Daily Examiner - - SPORT DIGEST -

MO­TOR­SPORT: De­fend­ing cham­pion, Aus­tralia’s Will Power, has crashed out on the open­ing lap of the Toronto IndyCar race, af­ter hit­ting Kiwi Scott Dixon’s car. Amer­i­can Josef New­gar­den, ranked one ahead of Power in cham­pi­onship stand­ings in fourth, won the race. Power, start­ing in fourth on the grid, hit Dixon’s rear at the third cor­ner of Sun­day’s race and bounced into the wall. “I went down the out­side of Scott and I don’t know if some­one was on the in­side of him (but) he moved out pretty quickly,” said Power, who claimed his third of four wins for 2016 in Toronto. “Un­for­tu­nately, we ended up in the wall.”
