Power eyeing season championship after Indy 500 victory

  Power eyeing season championship after Indy 500 victory Will Power spoke calmly and nonchalantly. It was hard to tell if he was trying to keep an even keel or if he was just exhausted."You have to just try to keep the emotion as low as possible because you use so much when you are racing, so trying to keep these next two days as low as I can," Power said Thursday. 

The race ran caution free prior to that, but when Rahal’s car broke loose, it crashed very hard into the Turn 13 We were the only ones that were bold enough to do it ( start with Firestone primary tires), but it put IndyCar Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix at Belle Isle Park Race 1 Saturday June 2, 2018 Photo 1.

Race delays because of crashes are relatively common, but it’s weird to see a delay come from the pace car crashing. That’s what happened Sunday ahead of the second race of IndyCar’s Dual in Detroit at the Chevrolet Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix, though.

The car was reportedly being driven by GM executive Mark Reuss at the time of the crash:

The passenger-side airbag deployed, and there was a delay while the track was cleared:

Alexander Rossi’s car went through the debris and continued on, but the others stopped. So officials then sent the other cars that did stop for the crash around to equalize the fuel. With a backup pace car.

And there was a further delay while tires were checked for debris damage:

That’s one of the more unusual starts to a race you’ll ever see.
