Dixon wins IndyCar race at Watkins Glen; Power crashes

It is a lot faster and no more second and third gear corners.

It's his 40th victory overall, moving the New Zealander him fourth place on the career list. So, I don't know what is going to happen tomorrow in the race, to be honest, but for sure the Hydroxycut/Chevy machine is quick on black tires. "We got wonderful fuel mileage".

Josef Newgarden finished second, almost 17 seconds behind Dixon, while Helio Castroneves finished third after pitting from second for fuel with two laps to go.

Power, who is 43 points behind Pagenaud in the championship, has a test at Sonoma Raceway on Thursday, Sept. 8, and the season finale at the same venue begins on Sept. 16.

Aussie Power crashed out of the race, finishing 20th of 22 drivers.

Power was held out of IndyCar's season-opening race in St. Petersburg after experiencing concussionlike symptoms, but the University of Miami Concussion Center, under the supervision of Dr. Stephen Olvey, determined he didn't suffer a concussion.

Points leader Pagenaud qualified seventh, the first time he has missed making the Firestone Fast Six this season. Power, the 2012 series champion, is one of the two remaining title contenders.

It was his second win of the season and fourth ever on the 5.42km permanent road course in NY.

Dixon won for the fourth time in seven tries at this 3.37-mile permanent road course.

The time obliterated Ryan Briscoe's 2009 track record of 1:29.1322 by over six seconds just as Dixon predicted yesterday, and it's dang impressive. They ended the race with the same number of points, with Dixon owning the tiebreaker (more race wins).

He said he would donate all of his prize money this week to a fund set up for the family of English driver Justin Wilson, who died in a crash during an IndyCar race at Pocono Speedway in Pennsylvania a year ago. In Sunday's race, he collided with Charlie Kimball on Lap 39 and Power hit the wall. Power, perhaps not knowing that Kimball was there, squeezed the Chip Ganassi Racing driver to the edge of the track. He got a huge run on the outside and made contact, sending Power hard into the barrier and bringing out a caution as debris scattered all over the track. "I think we can go racing".

"This is probably the most handsome venue I've ever been to", said Matthew Berger from Cincinatti Ohio. "It's just a shame". It's always interesting, and, well, at the least we're able to do good lap times on the reds, and sounds like the blacks were the way to go.
