Edmonton - Race results

Will Power returned to winning ways on road/street courses with a patient and intelligent drive on the newly configured circuit at Edmonton City Center Airport.
Penske's Will Power put the disappointments of two consecutive DNFs behind him to get back to the top of the podium at Edmonton, biding his time and staying out of trouble by avoiding rash temptation initially before choosing the perfect moment to strike and depose Takuma Sato.

Power's team mate Helio Castroneves claimed second, the perfect riposte to memories of his controversial finish to last year's Edmonton Indy where Castroneves lost the win after being penalised for blocking.

Dario Franchitti recovered to third after nearly getting caught out and held up in a clash between EJ Viso and Scott Dixon that wrecked his team mate's chances of a good finish.

I must say, as snaltautiblsy as I enjoyed reading what you had to say, I couldnt help but lose interest after a while. Its as if you had a excellent grasp on the subject matter, but you forgot to include your readers. Perhaps you should think about this from a lot more than 1 angle. Or maybe you shouldnt generalise so significantly. Its better if you think about what others may have to say instead of just going for a gut reaction to the topic. Think about adjusting your very own believed process and giving others who may read this the benefit of the doubt.
