Sao Paulo - Race results

Will Power kept cool and made winning races look easy, as he claimed his third visit to victory lane in 2012 at the Sao Paulo Indy 300 ahead of Ryan Hunter-Reay and Takuma Sato.
Will Power found the best place to keep out of trouble - the lead, for the most part - and hit his fuel numbers to make his third consecutive win in the IZOD IndyCar Series in 2012 look easy.

Ryan Hunter-Reay also made it look easy to cruise into second place, while most of the remaining 24 cars behind them had incidents of one sort of another in an eventful afternoon on the streets of Sao Paulo, Brazil.
