Marco blazes his way back to victory lane

As for the IndyCar championship, Dario Franchitti might have hoped for better than just fifth place to maximise the advantage over Will Power following the #12's accident, but Iowa still means that the Scot now has a 20pt lead over the Aussie in the points having come into the weekend tied. It's not a bad state of affairs, although Dario will be equally aware that the next race is back on a street/road circuit - which Power has dominated on so far in 2011 - and that the fight for the championship is only just beginning to get serious.

That race - the Honda Indy Toronto on the streets of that city - will be on Sunday, July 10 in two week's time.
