Powering Up: Will Power Triumphs at IndyCar Grand Prix of Alabama, Dixon and Franchitti Round Out Podium
Ask Will Power about last year’s Grand Prix of Alabama. He’ll tell you he dominated every part of the race…except for the winning part. But this year, there was no such short coming as Oakley’s star IndyCar driver powered his way to a resounding win from the start to the tail end of the event – finishing 3.38 seconds ahead of fellow Oakley drivers Scott Dixon (2nd) and Dario Franchitti (3rd), the defending IndyCar Champion. “I can’t think of a race where I’ve been so cool, so physically fine and where I had everything go so right,” Power said, rockin’ his Oakley eyewear.
In victory lane Dario put on his custom Oakley Hijinx with red icons and climbed out of his car to the roaring excitement of 300,000 plus fans. As he made his way to victory circle, Franchitti was met by his wife Ashley Judd and Team Target owner Chip Ganassi. The moment overwhelmed Franchitti as his wife wiped away tears of joy from his face.
Helio Castroneves won the race in the second closest finish in the history of the IndyCar Series, but it wasn’t enough to stop Scott Dixon from taking his second championship.
