Will Power had a strong oval outing at Iowa Speedway, with a late race charge allowing the Team Penske driver to finish second on Sunday, although he like everyone else had no answer for the dominant pace of race winner Josef Newgarden.

The former Verizon IndyCar Series champion was stronger in the latter stages of each stint, which allowed him to catch and pass both his team-mate Simon Pagenaud and Chip Ganassi Racing’s Scott Dixon, both of whom he admitted he could trust in a wheel-to-wheel battle despite being in a championship battle with both.

“It was a really good run,” said Power. “I think we had a very good long run car. We had people come back to us at the end of the stint so I was very happy that it went full green there at the end. That allowed us to get up to second.

“I’m just stoked to finish well at Iowa. It was tight racing cause those two guys I was racing against are guys we’re definitely racing in the championship.

“Obviously I didn’t want to get passed but I wanted to get by them. They’re very trustworthy drivers and very good to race with.”
