INDYCAR - Power catches good break to win Honda Indy Toronto for third time

TORONTO (Sunday, July 17, 2016) - Will Power feels he's been on the wrong side of enough caution periods in the Verizon IndyCar Series that he'll gladly accept the timely one that helped him win the Honda Indy Toronto.

The 2014 series champion claimed his third win of the season and third on the streets of Exhibition Place by 1.5275 seconds over teammate Helio Castroneves, driving directly into the 2016 championship conversation in the process. Power now sits second in the standings despite missing the season opener, 47 points behind teammate Simon Pagenaud.

"Getting close, that's good," said Power, who sat out the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg in March with an inner-ear infection after winning the pole in qualifying. "It's good to get this momentum for the team going forward for the rest of the championship. Five (races) to go, all good tracks for me.

BLOOMINGTON, IN -RIS- The track was fast at Bloomington Speedway and so was Chad Boespflug as he set a new lap record but it was another new winner in the feature as Brent Beauchamp fought with Dave Darland for most of the night before winning his first Indiana Sprint Week feature.

PUTNAMVILLE, IN -RIS- Following the postponement of the fourth race of 2016 Indiana Sprint Week the fifth race at Putnamville's Lincoln Park Speedway was actually fourth. But like the events so far the results seemed a bit unlikely as Bedford's Brady Short, a driver who missed the first three races came home the winner in dominating style.

Fifty drivers were there for qualifying with first night winner Tyler Courtney taking fast time at 12.670. What was more remarkable was that Lawrenceburg winner Bryan Clauson was not among those 50 as he had elected to run in a winged race at Eldora in Ohio.

ISW: Tyler Courtney Takes Opener After Passing Field

Tyler "Sunshine" Courtney 'shines' at night.

GAS CITY, IN -RIS- The 29th edition of “Indiana Sprint Week” kicked off as it usually does, at Gas City I-69 Speedway and very quickly we got a new winner with Tyler “Sunshine” Courtney adding his name to the list of Sprint Week feature winners.

Tyler qualified 19th of 47 drivers and won his heat in a photo finish with Bryan Clauson. Starting the feature in 16th, Sunshine had his work cut out for him. Hunter Schuerenberg went from the pole to lead but gave way to a charging Bryan Clauson on lap 10. Clauson appeared to have 'checked out' as he built a substantial lead in only a few laps. That went away when an incident in turn four put Thomas Meseraull into the fence in turn four on lap 22.

Johnny Klausmeier our interim crew chief, our lead engineer, he stepped up and when you do that it makes you really feel about that team comradery, that team chemistry and that team effort," said Busch.
