Will Power wins at Road America to end two-year drought

will power

Will Power ended a two-year victory drought by prevailing at the XPEL Grand Prix at Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wis., on Sunday.

Power had an average speed of 126.154 mph while beating out Team Penske teammates Josef Newgarden and Scott McLaughlin. Power crossed the line 3.2609 seconds before Newgarden, who won last month’s Indianapolis 500.

“Massively special,” Power said of the win. “We’ve worked so hard to try to get wins. I worked really hard in the offseason.”

Power’s victory was his first since winning the Detroit GP in June 2022, a span of 34 races.

“First win in a long time,” said Power, an Australian native. “Really happy with the win. This one is for the boys on my car. They do such a good job on strategy and the pit stops week-in and week-out.

“As a team, we dominated team. I’m excited for the rest of the season.”

Power also took over the IndyCar championship points by five points over Alex Palou, who finished fourth on Sunday. Kyle Kirkwood was fifth.

Power has 42 IndyCar wins, tied with Michael Andretti for fourth all-time.

Newgarden tried to make a move at the start of Lap 46 but was unable to get past his teammate.

“It was a really good team day,” Newgarden said. “Will did a great job, too. Look, he deserved to win that race, as well. We put together a great day.”
