Fernando Alonso Will Power dominates in IndyCar Grand Prix victory
Noah Ferguson | 28 May, 2017, 07:02

Jostens was named today as the official champion's ring provider of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, supplying rings to winners of the Indianapolis 500 presented by PennGrade Motor Oil, INDYCAR Grand Prix and Brickyard 400.

Next up on the Verizon IndyCar Series schedule is the 101st Indianapolis 500 presented by PennGrade Motor Oil.

This team should chalk up this season to a bad experience and learn whatever they can from the rest of it.

Looking ahead to the Indianapolis 500, there are persistent whispers that Honda will be bringing a much-improved package for its teams in a bid to win the Memorial Day classic two years in a row, and with veteran Spaniard Oriol Servia coming on board to drive a second Rahal-Letterman-Lanigan Racing vehicle for the 500, Rahal is a guy to watch over the next two weeks. He won the Monaco Grand Prix on five occasions, including three consecutive times from 1963 to 1965, as well as the Formula One World Championship in 1962 and 1968. Just 15 minutes after a fifth-place finish in the grand prix, he was already talking about his next mission - scaling Indy's catch-fence one more time.

If he can do it again, Pagenaud can enjoy a couple more weeks in Indy with an even bigger lead in the standings.

That's more like the Will Power we've come to expect in the IndyCar Series. Pagenaud has also won two of the three previous races on Indianapolis Motor Speedway's road course.Will Power is the only other driver to win at Indy's new road course, taking first in 2015.Four different drivers have claimed victories in the first four races of 2017.

The Australian took the lead for the final time on Lap 67 with Castroneves sitting on pit lane waiting for four tires.

Josef Newgarden, the six-year veteran who's still only 26, was poised for his third top-five finish in five starts since joining Team Penske as well. That dominance has continued into 2017.

Art St. Cyr (President, Honda Performance Development) on today's race: "We had two of the top six qualifiers yesterday, and turned that into two of the top three finishers in the race".

Bob Kaminsky of Homer Glen finished 14th in Saturday's Pro Mazda support race after finishing ninth on Friday.

The Indianapolis Motor Speedway has moved on from a long-time, Indianapolis-based provider of champions' rings for its major races. Last year, it was Tony Kanaan who saw his day end in some first-turn mayhem. (22) Juan Pablo Montoya, Chevrolet, 01:08.2478 (128.655) 6.

“The last time I qualified was September of past year, ” the two-time Indianapolis 500 victor said.

Scott Dixon would finish 2nd, Andretii Autosport's Ryan Hunter-Reay came in 3rd.

Just after the halfway point of the race and another round of pitstops, Power resumed the lead with Castroneves following close behind.

Will Power avoided the bad luck Saturday.

Dixon and Chip Ganassi Racing enter this weekend with something to prove as the race team has not yet won this season.

Kiwi IndyCars driver Scott Dixon has banked another solid points haul at this morning's round of the championship at the Grand Prix of Indianapolis - the road circuit used in the lead-in to the Indianapolis 500.
