WILL POWER OPENS MONTH OF MAY AT INDY WITH WIN IN ANGIE’S LIST GRAND PRIX OF INDIANAPOLIS

Strong showing for Team Chevy with four V6-powered road course aero kit entries finishing in top-five.

Power’s victory is the fourth for a Chevrolet IndyCar driver in the first five races of the season; the first of the season for the defending Verizon IndyCar Series champion and the 25th of his career.  Power and third place finisher Team Penske teammate Juan Pablo Montoya rank one-two in the Series’ standings heading into 99th running of the Indianapolis 500 INDIANAPOLIS (May 9, 2015).

Team Chevy opened the month of May at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in strong style, led by Will Power’s victory Saturday in the Angie’s List Grand Prix of Indianapolis. Power, in the No. 1 Verizon Team Penske Chevrolet, won for the first time this year and the 25th time of his career as he seeks a second straight Verizon IndyCar Series championship. Power dominated the day leading four times for 65 of 82-laps, and won by 1.5023 over Graham Rahal. Power started on pole position and drove away from a first-turn, first-lap melee that damaged the cars of a number of race contenders. The victory vaulted him to second in the Series’ standings. The Chevrolet Aero kit powered by fully integrated V6 2.2 liter twin turbo charged Chevy engine ran strong in the final race before the 99th running of the Indianapolis 500 in two weeks.

Four of the top-five finishers were Team Chevy entries. Juan Pablo Montoya was third in the No. 2 Verizon Team Penske Chevrolet to grab another podium finish and maintain the lead in the Verizon IndyCar Series point standings. Sebastien Bourdais in the No. 11 Team Mistic E-Cigs Chevrolet from KVSH Racing finished fourth. Charlie Kimball rebounded from a 14th-place starting position to post his first top-five finish (P5) in the No. 83 Novo Nordisk Chip Ganassi Racing Chevrolet. Four other Chevrolet IndyCar drivers placed in the top-10. Helio Castroneves, making his 300th career IndyCar start, was sixth in Team Penske’s No. 3 Verizon Chevrolet, followed by Tony Kanaan in the No. 10 NTT Data Chip Ganassi Racing Chevrolet and the No. 4 KV Racing Technology Chevrolet of IndyCar rookie Stefano Coletti in seventh and eighth respectively. Scott Dixon, who started the race second but was involved in the opening lap melee, recovered to finish 10th in the No. 9 Target Chip Ganassi Racing Chevrolet.
