Emphatic win for flawless Dixon

As he celebrated in victory lane with his wife, family and team - including Franchitti, who seemed genuinely happy for his long-time friend and team mate - it was Will Power sitting disconsolately in the Penske pit area that was hard to miss. When it's your season, it's your season. And when it's not, it's a long haul and nothing goes right, and everything starts getting to you. And the look on Will Power's face spoke eloquently on which side he felt his 2011 season was on in that divide, as he falls 62pts off the back of Franchitti for the title with just six races remaining in the year.
