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.

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