Power surges to another IndyCar victory in Alabama
Sunday, April 1, 2012
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) -- Will Power surged from the pack to win his second straight Indy Grand Prix of Alabama, once again holding off Scott Dixon.
Power started ninth but took the lead on a late caution and pulled back in front of Dixon on the double-file restart with 16 laps left Sunday at Barber Motorsports Park. It was the second straight win for Chevrolet and Team Penske, which has won the first two races.
Power and Dixon pulled away from the field for a 1-2 finish for the second straight race here. St. Petersburg winner and pole-sitter Helio Castroneves edged Graham Rahal for third.
Power had his fast qualifying time in the second session negated because a caution came down during his run.
