Power reflects on at last ending his Indy 500 hoodoo with a fine Penske team effort
Will Power celebrates his 38th birthday today. He was viewed for years as IndyCar’s nearly man – finishing second in the table three times in a row before at last taking the crown in 2014.
Indianapolis 500 victory similarly eluded him, despite starting in the top 10 in every race going all the way back to 2009. That was until last year’s event where he at last triumphed; his sheer emotion at winning finally was clear to see.
And we have found a video, which you can watch below, where he talks in detail through his victorious day, right from getting out of bed in the morning to his final laps of the race where he seized a lead he wasn’t to lose.
