Aussie holds off in­di­anapo­lis 500 champ fran­chitti

Austin American-Statesman - - SPORTS -

TORONTO — Will Power won the Honda Indy Toronto on Sun­day for his sec­ond straight vic­tory and fourth of the sea­son, pass­ing Justin Wil­son off a restart with 14 laps left and hold­ing off In­di­anapo­lis 500 cham­pion Dario Fran­chitti.

All four of Power’s vic­to­ries have come on street or road cour­ses. The se­ries leader — 42 points ahead of Fran­chitti posted his sec­ond straight vic­tory and fourth of the sea­son. — won two weeks ago at Watkins Glen and swept the sea­son-open­ing road races in Sao Paulo and St. Peters­burg.

The Aus­tralian is in his first full sea­son with Team Penske af­ter driv­ing six races last sea­son, high­lighted by a vic­tory in Ed­mon­ton. Be­fore shift­ing to IndyCar, he won three Champ Car races, in­clud­ing the 2007 race in Toronto on the tight and bumpy, 11-turn, 1.755-mile Ex­hi­bi­tion Place track.

Power gave Roger Penske his 150th open-wheel win and 41st vic­tory in the IndyCar Se­ries.
