Alabama - Race results

Will Power led every single lap at Barber Motorsports Park and never looked seriously threatened for the win, despite Scott Dixon keeping him honest on his way to clinching second for himself.
A flawless drive by Will Power saw him lead all 90 laps of the Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama, with no other driver a serious threat to him for the entire afternoon. His biggest challenge came from managing all the restarts, as the race saw another long list of incidents and collisions arising from the new double-file restart system.

Scott Dixon kept close to Power for much of the day until conceding defeat and dropping back in the closing laps. Dixon's Ganassi team mate, Dario Franchitti, battled up from seventh place on the grid to claim third, but had no answer for the leading duo's pace.

Danica Patrick had an eventful day, rising as high as third place at one point by virtue of a no-tyre gambit in the final round of pit stops which ultimately badly backfired. She was also involved in a collision that sent her team mate Mike Conway into the race's most crunching accident of the afternoon against the barrier out of turn 4.

I attended the race and truly enjoyed the atmosphere and the racing. The grounds are beautiful and the Barber Motorsports track provides a challenge to the drivers and teams. Based on this experience, I'll be following IndyCar for more than just the month of May from now on. Looking forward to coming back next year....
