Will Powers to second straight IndyCar win


Will Power held off Tony Kanaan to win Sunday's thrilling Verizon IndyCar Kohler Grand Prix at Road America track in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin.

The victory marks the second-straight for Power, as the driver of the No. 12 Penske Chevrolet took the chequered flag at the Chevrolet Dual in Detroit Race 2 on June 5.

A caution on lap 39 prompted by Conor Daly hitting the wall after a left-rear suspension problem set up a six-lap sprint to the end of the race. Power got a solid restart to maintain his position in the lead.

Graham Rahal grabbed the last spot on the podium with his third-place finish.

The race was IndyCar's first at the four-mile road course in Wisconsin after a nine-year absence, and by all accounts, it was a huge success. 

"I loved it," said Kanaan in his post-race interview. "I want to come back next week and do it again here,  We need more events like this...places that places can camp and bring their families. These are the races that we need."
